Calling all Bowlers and Non-Bowlers! It's time to gather your teams and get registered for the 20th annual Bowl for Jason's Friends fundraiser to be held at El Marko Lanes in Casper. This family friendly event brings together over 1000 bowlers each year to help raise money for Wyoming families with children battling cancer. But now is the time to grab your team's spot before your preferred bowling times are gone.
Each year the goal is to beat the previous year's fundraising dollars, all while providing a fun day of bowling for everyone.

This is a non-smoking event.
The 2018 Bowl for Jason's Friends Foundation fundraiser will be held on Saturday, March 3rd at the El Mark-O Lanes, 2800 CY Avenue, Casper, WY.
Grab a few friends and family and come participate! This is a non-smoking event!!
How to Participate: Form a bowling team consisting of up to five (5) bowlers with one person being designated as the team captain. Once you have your bowling team complete, call (307) 235-3421 or go online to reserve your preferred bowling time. The sooner you call, the better chance to obtain your first choice bowling time. Team members may be of any age, so bring the whole family.
PLEASE REMEMBER that each bowler's goal is to collect as many donations as they can prior to the team's designated bowling time. Since this is a fundraiser, we are asking each bowler to collect a minimum of $75 in donations prior to bowling. This minimum goal, earns each bowler a free t-shirt, one hour of bowling with shoes provided, along with free food and soft drinks during the event. Those individuals who excel in fundraising have the opportunity to be in competition for prize packages in the adult and youth (17 or under) categories. The top fundraiser in each category gets first choice of available prize packages. Additionally, there are prizes given out during every bowling time slot throughout the event. The bowling and shoe rentals are free, with your completed donation packet. There is also plenty of free food and beverages for all participants to enjoy during the event.
Forms may be downloaded from the Jason's website, just attach a large envelope to the Individual Donation sheet for collection of the donations. With your team members decided, complete the Team Information Sheet and return it quickly to Jason's Friends via fax at (307) 265-4668, mail or hand deliver to 340 West B Street, Suite 101, Casper, WY 82601 or electronically by filling out the form online to register and RESERVE YOUR TIME. The team captain will be notified of the designated bowling time assigned.
Until notification from Jason's Friends, each teams bowling time is not confirmed.
Team captains should distribute the Individual Donation Packets to bowling team members as soon as possible in order to get started immediately gathering donations.
