A bowling fundraiser is easy, fun, and profitable!

Build your fundraiser around America’s Favorite Participation Sport!  People love bowling.  An invitation to you bowling fundraiser will be met with smiles, not groans.  Our center is a fun, family-friendly environment where people of demographics gather for recreation and relationship building.  We provide the central activity for your event – the equipment, scoring, service, set-up and clean-up.  And we offer the space you need for your ancillary fundraising elements – raffles, silent auctions, live auctions, and 50/50s.  We can provide food of any kind!  From a few pizzas for your small group to a full sit-down banquet for 100 guests.  Our center is adaptable to your event.

It’s just fun!  You will love watching your guests enjoy themselves as they help raise money for your cause.  Bowling brings out the silly in everyone!  Let us help you make it even more memorable with Crazy-Bowl rules or 9-Pin scoring.  We are experts at bowling fun!

How it works: we agree on a set price you will pay for your guests’ bowling experience.  Then you are free to charge your guests whatever you like, determining their event entrance fee as suits your organization’s needs.  Then you let us know how much space you need for your auxiliary fundraising activities like silent auctions and raffles.  We will help you from beginning to end, including planning, preparation, set-up, and clean-up.  You focus on the guest list!

Over a million dollars have been raised in St. Clair and Bel-Air Bowling Centers for charitable causes!

“We have been partnering with St. Clair Bowl annually for fundraising and it has been a very positive experience. Every year, we enjoy the energy and support from the bowling alley. From having everything set up before we arrive, to donating to our silent auction and being available to answer questions and provide support during our event, St. Clair Bowl has been an ideal partner for fundraising.”

-Kris Fulkerson, LCSW, MS, Program Coordinator, Heartlinks Grief Center at Family Hospice

The first thing to do is to pick a date.  Contact us.  We will help you every step of the way.

How much money can I make?

How much money your organization makes is up to you!  We charge a flat rate for bowling and shoe rental.  You charge your guests whatever you like and keep the difference for your cause.  The, you can use our extra space for ancillary fundraising efforts like a silent auction.

What about raffles and 50/50s?

If your organization wants to do a raffle or 50/50, you’ll need to contact the City of O’Fallon for a permit.  Although our address is Fairview Heights, we are located in O’Fallon proper.  A permit is required and this is your responsibility.
