Junior Achievement of Arkansas is hosting a Turkey Bowl on Friday, Nov. 19 at Millennium Bowl in North Little Rock to fundraise — with a goal to raise $47,650 — for its educational programs.
“Last year alone, the organization impacted roughly 13,000 students across the state,” the organization says in a release. “Since JA’s establishment in Arkansas in the mid-1980s, approximately 276,000 students in Arkansas have been touched by Junior Achievement’s programs.”
Each team will play in two bowling games with food and drinks provided. Team members will get to bowl a frozen turkey — with the winning prize being a Thanksgiving turkey.
The requirements outlined for participation are as follows:
- Build a team of five bowlers.
- Pick a time slot of either 1:30 p.m.-3:30 p.m. or 4 p.m.- 6 p.m.
- Create a team name.
