Boys Town Louisiana Raises Record-Breaking $50,000 at Annual Bowl-A-Palooza

Earlier this month, New York Life’s Louisiana General Office teamed up with Boys Town Louisiana to host the 4th annual Bowl-A-Palooza at Mid City Lanes Rock 'N' Bowl in New Orleans.

Nearly 200 people came out for an afternoon of food, music, bowling and fun, all to benefit Boys Town Louisiana's Family Home ProgramSM, as well as our young people who are aging out of the foster care system.

Six company bowling teams were in the house competing for the King Pin trophy, including local New York Life agents, Healthy Blue, and reigning champion Entergy.  Fans of Deuce Brown Jazz, friends from Liberty Bank, and former Louisiana House Representative, Austin Badon, Jr., also showed up in support of Boys Town Louisiana.

"We are proud to have a partner in New York Life that believes in Boys Town's mission of saving children and healing families," said New York Life agent Wayne Thomas. Wayne and his son Tim, current Boys Town Louisiana Board Chairman, have been avid supporters of the organization for years, and were both essential players to Bowl-A-Palooza’s fundraising success.

Thanks to the overwhelming support from corporate sponsors and individual donors, Boys Town Louisiana surpassed their goal and raised more than $50,000.

"Seeing so many representatives from different Louisiana industries attend Bowl-A-Palooza proves that we are all committed to Saving Children and Healing Families in our community," said Darrell Johnson, Boys Town Louisiana Director of Development.  "Because of their investment in Louisiana's young people, we can sustain our programs and services to make a thriving community for all."
