Last year's bowling fundraiser

What is this bowling event?
SouthFair's now annual fundraising event. We recruit captains to form six person teams that raise money for SouthFair and at the end enjoy an evening of bowling, food, comradery and fun!
 
How will we use the money?
For post-purchase counseling services that will provide  the tools and resources in order to successfully help homeowners build assets and for college internships for promoting and growing future community development leaders. Homeownership! Affordable Housing! Community Revitalization!
 
How it works?
Team captains contact us at  info@southfaircdc.org  to reserve a team slot and to register their team.

Set a fundraising goal. Minimum fundraising goal $750 per team. There are 6 people on a team so each person will raise at least $125. Of course aim high as you want! Recruit persons to join your team, co-workers, family, and friends.

Ask your employer, your insurance agent, stylist or any other business to sponsor you in your efforts to support SouthFair.

All fundraising monies will be due by August 17th. Team captains will receive additional information after registration.
