Narrows Plaza Bowl is the perfect place to have your next FUNdraising event!
Narrows Plaza Bowl is pleased to offer a variety of fundraising packages to help our local community organizations. We can help you put the FUN in FUNdraising! Below are several examples of the fundraisers we offer. Keep in mind that the amount of money you can raise will vary by the audience you are trying to reach and the day and time of your event. The rates quoted below are just examples, please contact our management team for current rates and prizes. Your group receives the portion of the ticket sales that is added over and above the center’s fee.
Example: 80 tickets sold at $15.00 each. The center agrees to a $7.00 fee. 60 people attend, you keep $480.00 (60 x $8.00). 20 people do not attend, you keep $300.00 (20 x $15.00). Total you have raised: $780.00. Tip: Amount easily increased by more ticket sales, give incentives to your “Ticket Agents.”
Sell a “bowling lane” to businesses in your area for a tax deductible contribution of $100.00, $200.00, or $500.00 per lane. Each lane purchased will accommodate 6
people for a special bowling party to include 3 games of bowling, and possible beverages and prizes (negotiate with Narrows Plaza Bowl).
Example: 40 lanes at $200.00 each equals $8,000.00 less the lane rental fee charged by the Tip: Good PR is a must for this program. Suggest the purchased lane party be given as a thank you to employees, honor students of their employees, or underprivileged children in the area.
Recruit people to bowl in a special event. Each bowler will receive a custom Bowl-a-thon form that they can circulate to businesses, friends and family, who then pledge either a “per pin” amount or a “fixed” amount. Once the bowlers have canvassed the community, they will bowl three games on a specified date and time. Of these games, the 2 highest scores will be used to calculate the pledged amount. If a fixed amount has been pledged, that amount should be collected.
Example: If the 2 highest scores bowled are 350 and the “per pin” pledge is .05 per point scored: each bowler with 10 pledges of .05 per pin would earn 175.00 (350 pins x .05 x 10 pledges = $175). If 30 bowlers participated, and they each have an average score of 350 and 10 pledges at .05 per pin, your group would earn $5250.00 less the rental charged by the center. This amount will increase with more pledges.
Tip: Kids are great candidates to participate as bowlers. If you can get into the pre-teen and teenage markets, they’ll spread this like wildfire! Narrows Plaza Bowl will help you build your pledge forms. Frame to buy one of the South Sound’s best pizzas and your group receives a percentage of the pizza and soft drink sales. We will provide you with the coupon with all of the details to help you drive the sales. For added convenience, we can make pizzas to go with call ahead orders so busy parents can pick up a pizza on their way home.
Example: If the agreed percentage of sales is 20% and sales total $2000, your group just earned $400 just by giving the coupons to everyone you know.
Tip: Hand out the coupons during local sporting events or at shopping centers where foot traffic is highest.
