got questions?

What is the cost and how do I participate?

When you become a participating sponsor you actually get in the game!  The Bowl-a-Thon Bash is a Unified Play event. 

Each lane will have 2 sponsoring bowlers and 2 Special Olympic athletes.  While many bowlers are from local companies, we also welcome individuals!

The cost to be a participate is $100 per sponsoring bowler.  Your company can send any number of bowlers you’d like, but spots are limited.  Click here to learn more or reserve a spot.

When and where is the event?

The Bowl-a-Thon Bash is going down from 10:00 am to 12:30 pm on Friday August 16th. Registration begins at 9:30.

The event is located at the AMF Tempe Village Lanes.  4407 S Rural Rd, Tempe AZ 85282.

How do strike/spare pledges work?

As a sponsoring participant you also help raise money by getting pledges.  Pledges are based on how many collective strikes and spares we get at the event.  

So for example, if a friend of yours pledges $.10 per strike/spare and we get a total of 500 (which is our goal!) their donation amount would be $50.

How do premium sponsorships work?

We are offering a variety of upgraded sponsorships that allow you to make an even bigger impact!  We have a large variety of packages, each putting your logo on a different piece of the event (for example the medals given to athletes or the pizza lunch we serve).

Each of the premium sponsorship packages also include covering costs of bowling participants as well.  Act now because premium sponsorship spots are very limited.  Click here to learn more about your options.

Is this event tax deductible?

Yes it is! Special Olympics is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization and your donation is tax deductible within the guidelines of U.S. law.

We will send you a receipt for your tax records after you complete your registration.

Who can participate and attend?

Anyone can participate as a sponsoring bowler! 

While bowlers are usually sponsored by their company, individuals can certainly sign up as well! Regarding attendance as a non-bowler, it should be noted that space in the bowling alley is limited. 

If possible, please sign up to bowl!

Can I be a volunteer at the event?

We need lots of good people to help out!  While volunteer spots will be limited, we would love to hear from you. Contact us here.

Why will this be the most fun event in history?

This event will rock for so many reasons!  This Unified Play event is truly unlike any other. 

Imagine a fun atmosphere with live music, fun games, lots of prizes and tons of smiles :) Half of the event you will be bowling, and the other half you’ll be hanging out with the athletes… playing arcade games, interacting with super heros, and taking fun photos. 

After all, it’s going to be a BASH! Click here and help make the event a huge hit!
