Corporate Teams

This team builder is right up your alley!

Corporate social responsibility can have an important impact on your company. Getting your staff involved with an event like this will allow employees to work together, build camaraderie and feel good about giving back to their community while
having a lot of fun.

Getting your whole company involved is easy. Just give us a shout
and we’ll help you get the ball rolling

How It Works

  • We will create an online group for your teams – a minimum of five (5) teams must participate to qualify for the challenge. Teams do not have to consist of employees only… friends and family can also represent the company.
  • Once your participants are registered online they will have a fundraising webpage they can share with their networks to raise funds. Many corporate teams hold fundraisers at their office as well like donut sales, a dunk tank for the CEO, jeans days, or really anything else.
  • The company that raises the most will receive bragging rights, recognition in Bowl for Kids’ Sake publications, and the coveted Ruler of the Lanes trophy!!!
  • Finally, schedule the bowling party session that works best for your teams. Enjoy free cosmic bowling, beer, pizza and prizes while you feel good about supporting our mission to create and support more life-changing friendships in your community
