Boys Town Louisiana Hosts 3rd Annual Bowl-A-Palooza

Louisiana Bowl-A-Palooza 1

​The only thing better than good food, live music and an evening of unlimited bowling is supporting a cause that's close to your heart. Boys Town Louisiana gave their community supporters and donors a chance to enjoy a night of saving children and healing families at their annual Bowl-A-Palooza, an event that aims to bring the community together and support the Boys Town mission.

The 3rd Annual Bowl-A-Palooza is one of two large-scale fundraisers of the year that allows donors to interact with the families and children in a fun way. The $25 tickets for the event include food, live music, access to the silent auction and unlimited bowling at Rock N Bowl, a local and family-owned business that has been a continued supporter of Boys Town throughout the years. Bowl-A-Palooza is designed to be an event that is inclusive of all Boys Town supporters, including donors, community members, employees and youth to raise funds for the residential homes and for youth aging out of the foster care system.

In honor of National Foster Care Month, Boys Town Louisiana asked for company sponsorships to help cover the cost of the event and to raise funds for foster care services. When all was said and done, Boys Town Louisiana walked away from the event having raised $40,000 through revenue from company sponsorships, silent auction profit and ticket sales. Compared to last year's $21,000 raised, this year was a huge success.

"Unique to this year, Bowl-A-Palooza hosted a bowling competition between major donors," said Julia Turkevich, Boys Town Louisiana Donor Relations Specialist. "The highest scoring sponsorship team, Entergy, won bragging rights as the Boys Town King Pin! They took home the Bowl-A-Palooza trophy, which they get to hold onto for a year until the next year's event."

Congratulations to Boys Town Louisiana for another successful Bowl-A-Palooza during National Foster Care Month!
