There will be a “Strike for Education” Retro Bowl to benefit Junior Achievement of Chattanooga on Aug. 23 and 24 at the Holiday Bowl on Brainerd Road.
“No bowling skill? That’s okay," said Special Events Director Renee Penney. "Our tournament is designed to be fun for everyone with costume, frozen T-shirt and hula hoop contests - so gather your friends, family or co-workers and come on out. Each member of your team of six will receive an awesome 'Strike for Education' event t-shirt to accompany their two games of bowling at the event."
Teams of up to six may register for $150, by visiting www.jachatt.org or by contacting Ms. Penney at 892-4488.
All proceeds from the event will go to support Junior Achievement’s programs throughout the Chattanooga and North Georgia area. Currently, Junior Achievement programs are being taught in 68 schools and 14 after-school/summer partnerships, reaching over 11,500 students in Hamilton, Catoosa, Marion, Walker and Sequatchie counties. While elementary and middle school programs each cost $500 and high school programs cost $650, they are provided to the schools at no cost because of the money raised by corporate gifts, foundation grants and special events such as “Strike for Education”. Junior Achievement is not a United Way agency.
