BOWL FOR JASON'S FRIENDS
The 17th Annual Bowl for Jason's Friends was a huge success. We set this unprecedented goal of $350,000 and surpassed it! The success of our fundraiser is a direct result of great community and statewide commitment and participation. We couldn't do this without the generous support of our Corporate, Lane and Prize sponsors and all the bowlers who gathered generous donations for our great cause.
Captains may now register teams of 5
following the instructions below!
The Bowl for Jason's Friends Foundation annual fundraiser is a fun community event involving nearly 1000 bowlers and even more donors and sponsors. Last year over $317,000 was raised through the 2014 Bowl. The 2015 goal is $350,000!
The proceeds raised from the Bowl for Jason's Friends are the primary source of revenue for the funding we provide to Wyoming families enrolled in our program whose child is battling a brain or spinal cord tumor and childhood cancers.
Join us on Saturday, March 7, 2015 when we honor and CELEBRATE the bowlers who have collectively gathered a tremendous amount of money to help Wyoming kids with cancer. The bowling, shoe rental, food and beverages are FREE during the event for all participants.
- Free bowling and shoe rental

- Free t-shirt to every bowler that collects $75 or more in donations
