Bowl for Jason's Friends Foundation is our annual fundraiser held in Casper, Wyoming. This fun family event brings almost 1000 bowlers, regardless of age, together to raise money for our foundation. This event is our primary fundraiser for the entire year. Our goal is to beat last year's fundraiser dollars, while providing a fun day of bowling for our volunteer bowlers. Your active participation, by being part of a bowling team and collecting donations, will help us to provide assistance for Wyoming families with children who are fighting brain or spinal cord tumors and other childhood cancers. This is a non-smoking event.
The 2013 Bowl for Jason's Friends Foundation fundraiser will be held on Saturday, February 23, 2013 at the El Mark-O Lanes, 2800 CY Avenue, Casper, WY. MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!
How It Works
Form a bowling team consisting of five (5) bowlers with one designated as the team captain. Once you have your bowling team complete, call our office at (307) 235-3421 to reserve your preferred bowling time. The sooner you call, the better chance to obtain your first choice bowling time. Team members may be of any age, so bring the whole family. Each bowler collects donations prior to the team's designated bowling time. Since this is a fundraiser, we are asking each bowler to collect a minimum of $75 in donations. This earns the bowler a free t-shirt for the event. Those who excel in fundraising and the collection of donations have the opportunity to be in competition for either the adult prize packages category or the youth (17 or under) prize packages category. These are fabulous prize packages and well worth your efforts to collect donations. The top winner of each category gets first choice of a prize package and so on. For every $75 in donations you collect, you will receive a drawing ticket and the opportunity to win a prize. Additionally, there are prizes given out during every bowling shift throughout the event. The bowling and shoe rentals are free. There is also free food and beverages during the event for all participants to enjoy.

At your bowling time your team will bowl as many games as possible within your team's allotted bowling time of one hour and fifteen minutes.
