Be A Buddy Bowl-A-Thon

Be A Buddy Bowl-A-Thon is the inaugural fundraising event that serves as an opportunity to have fun with family and friends while supporting Free Lunch Academy‘s impactful work within the character development space.

FLA will solicit sponsorship pledges from local brands and businesses and gather at Seven Ten Social (bowling alley) for games, fun and excitement while raising awareness and money, for a worthwhile cause. Free Lunch Academy’s goal is to raise a minimum of $10,000 so they can continue to provide their conflict resolution, bullying prevention and youth resilience training services within Chicagoland area school communities.
