Event Details


Join the Community Design Collaborative for our 18th annual Bowling Ball fun(d)raiser!

Image of bowler in alley with rainbow emanating from the figureThis fun, unique event will take place on the evening of Saturday, September 27, once again at Erie Lanes. 

Knock down tenpins and enjoy the Bowling Ball’s entertaining costumes, bounteous raffle table, fabulous trophies and prizes, and commemorative goodies. Join us in the lounge at 6 pm to hang with your buddies—or eyeball your rivals—and then bowl from 7 to 10 pm.

Your Bowling Ball sponsorship supports the Collaborative’s work to strengthen neighborhoods through design. Our programs match teams of design professionals with nonprofits in the community who need creative thinking at the earliest stages of conceptual design.

Sponsorship is also a great opportunity to gain visibility in the community as well as provide a super team-building opportunity for your staff! Your team will be among 250 participants rolling on the lanes this year. 

If you’re unable to join us this year, please consider sponsoring a lane for one of our nonprofit clients through the Community Bowlers Club.

Your help makes a difference. Last year alone, we provided over $925,000 and 8,778 volunteer hours in pro bono design assistance to nonprofit and public agencies throughout greater Philadelphia. We can’t do this work without your help. Sign up today.

If you prefer to pay by check, you can download a sponsorship form and mail it with your payment to: Bowling Ball, c/o Community Design Collaborative, 1216 Arch St First Floor, Philadelphia PA 19107.

See you at Erie Lanes!

 Thanks to our sponsors!
