Whether your goals are $300, $3000, or $30,000 or more, Old Mountain Lanes has a fundraising program just right for your group's needs.

An Old Mountain Lanes Fundraising Program can not only be fun for participants, but also highly beneficial for your organization as well.  The solution to raising money for your organization are endless.  Here are three fun ways to achieve your goal.

1.  The 50/50 Party:  By far and away our most popular event, great for school groups, sports organizations, and PTA's, the 50/50 party is easy to implement and makes for a smooth event.  You can customize your event to include not just bowling, but food, beverages, and billiards as well.   For each ticket you sell, you keep half the proceeds.  Typical pricing for these events is as follows:

  • Base package includes bowling for two hours with shoe rentals - $8 per person
  • Add cheese pizza and pitchers of soda - $10.00 per person
  • Add topping pizzas and pitchers of soda - $12.00 per person
  • Add burgers and fries with soda instead of pizza - $15.00 per person

2.  Lane purchase:  Your group or organization would purchase lanes for use during a specific amount of time (i.e. two hours).  Lane rentals vary based on time, day and season.  For a two hour lane rental, the typical price is $50 per lane with shoes included (5 people per lane).  Recruit people to contribute a set denomination (let's say $30 per person) and you would raise $20 per person profit. 

  • 1 Hour per lane with shoe rentals - $60 per lane
  • 2 hours per lane with 5 shoe rentals - $50 per lane

3.  Bowlathon / Pledge Bowling:  This is a more involved fundraiser, but you stand to make the most money this way.  Every person who plans on attending would be given a envelope with a pledge sheet attached.  The bowlers should go out and ask friends. family, and co-workers to pledge a certain amount per pin knocked down during the event.  On the day of the event, you would bowl a set number of games and we would mark off the person's envelope.  After the event, the bowler would go out and collect the money that was pledged.

For example, let's say you go out and get 10 people to pledge 10 cents per pin knocked down.  On the day of the event, you knock down 500 pins over three games.  When you went back to collect the money, each pledge would owe $50 and that one bowler would raise over $500 by themselves.  Imagine what 50 people or more could raise!

Prices for this event are based on the number of games you wish to bowl, plus shoes.

  • 2 games with shoe rental - $10.00 per person
  • 3 games with shoe rental - $12.00 per person
