We are pleased to report that our team nearly doubled our original goal of selling 100 sweatshirts. The final results are in: our team managed to sell a total of 190 sweatshirts, which at this current time has generated an overall net profit for the team of $3,267. Our initial goal of 100 sweatshirts would have netted roughly $1,500 for the team to use for tournament and travel expenses, so we more than doubled our projected funds raised. Thank you to all family, friends, coworkers, and alumni bowlers for making this a great success!
Our next fundraising effort will take place on Sunday, November 13th at 12:00PM when we host our 30th Annual Alumni Doubles tournament at AMF East Meadow Bowl. More details to follow!
We set our goal at 100 sweatshirt sales, and we're pleased to announce we've blown that goal away. Currently, there are 178 sweatshirts that are sold, and that number is still rising. This will raise in excess of $3,000 for the team's tournament expenses, so thank you very much for your support! We are planning to place the order by next Tuesday, October 18th so there's still time to get one if you're interested.
The St. John's Bowling Team will be selling hooded sweatshirts this fall as a fundraiser for our team. Our goal is to sell 100 sweatshirts by October 9th to raise a total of $1,500, which would help our team pay for tournament and practice expenses during the first half of our season. Sweatshirts are available in all sizes ranging from Youth Small through Adult 3XL. They will cost $40 each and $45 for 2XL and 3XL.
If you would like to support our team and buy a sweatshirt, please Contact Us or one of our team members today to arrange payment and to notify us of which size(s) you would like.
Throughout the season, we'll be posting information on this page about all of our fundraising initiatives, which will include sweatshirt sales, bowling ball raffles, and our annual Alumni Doubles tournament. Our team relies heavily on fundraising in order to cover equipment, travel, and practice expenses. Your help and support is greatly appreciated!
