Our staff will be there to help assist you and organize the event.

Invite lots of people and seek out plenty of publicity. Contact local radio and television stations well ahead of your event. Make sure non-bowlers know that there will be plenty of fun things to do besides bowl.
Maintain a contact list of potential participants and put a calling tree to work to raise the number of participants to the maximum level.
Post info on free sites and get flyers out to everyone you can.
Bowlers can also compete for prizes such as most strikes, most gutter balls, highest game, lowest score, best team, etc.
You can offer comical trophies or the more traditional trophies. Just make sure that the focus remains on having fun.
Some groups make their bowling fundraiser a costume event and award prizes for different costume categories like funniest, worst, most original, best team costume, etc.
Give your event a theme that inspires the participants to wear outrageous costumes.
Add extra fundraising capabilities to your bowling event such as silent auctions, raffle tickets for donated prizes, selling food items, etc.
With raffle tickets and silent auctions, be sure to publicize these well ahead of time. Offer raffle tickets for sale ahead of time to people who can't make it. You can also start your silent auctions ahead of time to increase bids.
At the end of the night, run a live auction for the best donated items and announce the winners of all the various prizes, raffles, costume awards and bowling trophies.
Emphasize that it's all about having fun for a good cause and your bowling fundraiser will be a big success!
At East Hampton Bowl we can make your FUNraiser something special!!
