How this works:
All 16 schools will build a team of 15 people.  Each participant will bowl two games at a cost of $20.00 (Shoes Free!!!).  Schools can have as many bowlers as they want but must have a minimum of 15.  Each bowler will pledge an amount to be used to calculate their donation to be paid based on their individual score per game.  Each bowler can bowl as many additional games as they would like at a cost of $10 per game. At the end of each game the bowler calculates their donation based on their score times their pledge.  The value of the game is then placed in their respective canister.

Remember, this is a fundraiser for saving the sports that are getting cut because of the budget short fall, so please show your support.
