Bowl-a-Thon set Nov. 4 in Mitchell

The seventh annual Junior Achievement Bowl-a-Thon will be Friday, Nov. 4, at the Village Bowl, Mitchell.

The goal for 2011 is to raise more than $5,200 with 80 bowlers participating in the event.

Each team consists of five bowlers who each raise a minimum of $65. Each bowler will bowl two hours and receive food and beverages, along with the chance to win numerous door prizes. The statewide top individual fundraiser in this year's Bowl-a-Thon will win a seven-night stay in Mazatlan, Mexico.

The Bowl-a-Thon proceeds will help fund Junior Achievement programming in Mitchell during the 2012-13 school year. Junior Achievement partners business and community volunteers with teachers to inspire and prepare Mitchell students to succeed in a global economy by focusing on the three pillars of success: work readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy.
