How it Started
Several years ago, I volunteered to organize a bowl-a-thon for Mychal’s Learning Place. It seemed easy enough to sign up particpants but as I was given hand-written information for team names, potential sponsors etc., I realized the need to organize everything into a concise form to maximize our ability to get participants and donations. Given my background in website development, I thought what better place to centralize this information than online where organizers, sponsors and bowlers could all have immediate access to the event information…
Less than 30 days later Bowlathon.net was launched and successfully used for Mychal’s 5th Annual Bowl-a-thon!
Bowlathon.net provides fundraising organizers with a comprehensive micro-site to showcase and manage their event to potential participants and sponsors, offer online registration, track the event status, and collect donations and pledges. To find out more about how it works, click here.
Creating the Bowlathon.net site has been a rewarding personal project that has allowed me to interact with many different types of organizations and their volunteers across the country. Thanks to all the feedback and requests, we continue to improve and upgrade the site making event management more efficient so organizers can spend more time promoting their event and successfully reaching their fundraising goals!
