Rivero, Gordimer & Company attended Junior Achievement of Tampa Bay’s Summer Classic Bowl-A-Thon held on Saturday, June 16th. The JA Summer Classic Bowl-A-Thon is known as “The Great CPA Challenge” as Rivero, Gordimer & Company, along with other local Tampa CPA Firms, celebrate their fundraising efforts for Junior Achievement through food and drinks, raffle prizes, and bowling with colleagues and friends.
Leading up to the Bowl-A-Thon, each CPA Firm worked to raise money from family, friends, employees, and businesses to support Junior Achievement’s community programs benefiting more than 80,000 young people.
Who is Junior Achievement of Tampa Bay?
Junior Achievement of Tampa Bay is a non-profit organization that provides local students with a variety of programs to help them attain valuable skills to manage their money, develop educational and professional plans, and make better academic, economic, and professional decisions.
What is the Great CPA Challenge?
The Great CPA Challenge is one of the many JA Bowl-A-Thon themes. Its goal is to encourage local CPA Firms in Tampa to help raise money and awareness for Junior Achievement of Tampa Bay’s local programs.
Each CPA Firm that participates in the Bowl-A-Thon nominates one member to coordinate their fundraising efforts. This coordinator recruits team captains and bowlers as well as motivating the team to raise pledges and donations for Junior Achievement.
