What is a Bowl-a-Thon?
A fundraising tri-borough bowling party that you can be a part of by joining a team or sponsoring a bowler! There will be contests, prizes, and bragging rights for the highest scoring team and for the team that raises the most funds! Not to mention a great afternoon spent bowling and hanging around with awesome people who want to help make a direct difference in the lives of women.
Manhattan – Bowlmor Union Square
Brooklyn – The Gutter 200 N. 14th St

How do I get involved?
Join a team or support a team! Teams of 6 will be bowling and fundraising for fun and to raise money for The New York Abortion Access Fund. NYAAF fills a vital health care gap by helping women get the health care they want and need. We believe that every woman should have the right to shape her own life and the right to care for herself and her family with dignity. The money you raise will have a direct impact on women’s lives.
Why should I get involved?
Women are in need more than ever, access is being restricted and threatened more than ever. Without your help women who reach out for help won’t be able to access the abortion they need because of a couple of bucks. The bowl-a-thon accounted for half our budget last year and without the funds we raise through this bowl-a-thon, clinics will be forced to turn women away.
New York is a haven for women who need and should have access to a safe abortion. The bowl-a-thon is a great and fun way to make sure that it stays that way.
The bowl-a-thon is an exciting opportunity to raise money for the New York Abortion Access Fund and also to have a great time with activists in NYC!
Haven’t bowled since high school? Or EVER? Not a problem! The bowl-a-thon is about access, not prowess. There’s no pin count: the goal is to help women and girls with the resources they need to make the right decision for their lives. And it’s the most fun you’ll ever have in rented shoes!
Want to support this grassroots event but you’re too busy to bowl? Donate to one of the NYAAF teams or to an individual!
Together, we’ll strike down barriers to abortion access.
