We’ve talked before about getting cool custom tees for your bowling team. Here’s an idea for your next fundraiser; try a bowling night. Bowling is an incredibly fun activity for all ages, all skill levels, and all levels of athletic ability. You don’t have to be good to enjoy bowling. It’s one of the few sports that one can be truly awful at and still have a great time. With a bowling fundraiser, you’re giving donors something fun for their money, which will manifest itself in a bigger turnout and higher revenue than other fundraising options. Here are a few points to consider when planning your bowling night:


Contact Your Local Alley


Contact your local bowling alley and see what they can do for you as far as rates go. Most bowling alleys have dealt with these fundraisers before, and can give you special group rates. They can also offer the expertise that experience gives them to help you set up the event in a way that is mutually beneficial. Don’t be afraid to shop around and get quotes from several alleys. 


Have Mini Events


Silent auctions, bake sales and 50/50 raffles are just a few ways of doing a mini fundraiser within the fundraiser. With other fundraising events going on at the bowling night, you can maximize the impact of bringing in potential donors. 


Don’t Forget T-Shirts


Custom t-shirts for your volunteers or members accomplish three goals; they brand the event, they get your organization or cause out there (they’re likely to wear the shirts from time to time after the event), and they can even be used to generate further revenue. Order in bulk, and sell extras at the event. Maybe give some out as attendance prizes. If you hand out attendance prize tickets at the start of the event, it gives people an extra reason to stick around.
