The Junior Achievement Bowl-a-thon is an annual fundraising event where teams of five gather for camaraderie while helping raise funds that enable local students to participate in the JA curriculum. Each bowler is asked to collect a minimum of $100, which will provide JA programs to 4 students in our service area. Many area companies have multiple teams participating in the bowl-a-thon. Fred Olivieri Construction Company has participated in the event since the 90's. This year we had three teams and raised over $11,000. Eight individuals raised $500 or more and three individuals raised over $1,000 or more. In addition to our efforts to raise money, we also won first place in the bowling pin decorating contest with our bowling pin ship in a bottle, The USS Olivieri.
