Generate New Business with Bowling Fundraisers

Do you offer fundraisers at your bowling venue?

Fundraisers not only support great causes, they directly benefit your business by boosting traffic, exposing non-bowlers to the sport, building your marketing database, promoting repeat business and much more.

What's more, there are several fundraising formats to provide you with flexibility in determining the best fit for your business. These include the Bowl-A-Thon format or a League Rebate arrangement.

Be sure to let the public know about your fundraisers by promoting them both outside of your venue and in. Now's the time to get in touch with local sports teams, church groups and school organizations and share that your bowling business is a great venue to host their next fundraising event.

Get the word out to customers inside your venue by playing our new Audio & Video promotion from the Infotainment Menu of your Bowling Music Player. Have your Scheduler automate the process for you by scheduling the announcement to play when your target demographics come in to bowl.

Happy Fundraising!
