Junior Achievement Bowl-A-Thon

This past Sunday Adventist Health System hosted its Bowl-A-Thon to raise money for Junior Achievement. Tim's office had a team they affectionately named "Hair Nation"...I'm sure your mind is wandering now...LOL. Several Teams had fun themes and raised funds to support JA. This is a program near and dear to my husband's, dad's and father-in-law's as they go and teach students once a month. 

4,286  Junior Achievement volunteers teach 4,876 classes to  94,911students in Central Florida
Junior Achievement is a partnership between the business community, educators and volunteers — all working together to inspire young people to dream big and reach their potential.  JA’s hands-on, experiential programs teach the key concepts of work readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy to young people all over the world.   Junior Achievement of Central Florida, Inc. provides programming in Orange, Seminole, Osceola, Volusia and Lake County classrooms.
JACF is a  member of Junior Achievement WorldWide that operates in 123 countries, reaching 9.7 million students in over 379,000 classrooms. which last year delivered 379,968 classes to 9,795,485 students.

Now for some hilarity!!! DRUM ROLL...............

HAIR NATION in Concert!!!

 Tim and a couple of his team members....HILARIOUS!

A few days before the event Tim asked if my co-worker and I would join his team since they were short. We also work for AHS but on the IT side. We agreed. Then I found out about "dressing up" and the theme. BAMBOOZLED!!! Tim told me not to worry because he had "ordered some things" for me.
OK, this did NOT put me at ease. Lord only knew what he could have ordered.....

Ahhh...a red Joan Jett wig and rad yellow mesh gloves!!!

We had a blast! Most importantly, the cause all the teams supported. YAY!
