NEW HAVEN, CT - UIL Holdings Corporation’s volunteer council and company employees spent a few hours of their spare time this past Sunday bowling to benefit Junior Achievement of Western Connecticut and Southwest New England in the company’s first bowl-a-thon. The employee-driven campaign to date has raised $7,242 to support Junior Achievement’s state-wide efforts.

The bowl-a-thon took place Sunday, March 30, from 2 to 4:30 p.m. at AMF Milford Lanes 1717 Boston Post Road in Milford. Eleven teams made up of employees, family and friends participated in the event.

“UIL is proud to have participated in our first bowl-a-thon for JA,” said Bill Reis, UIL’s vice president for customer care and Junior Achievement board member. “This Sunday, I bowled along with my UIL colleagues to have fun and help JA continue to provide meaningful education to students throughout the state.”

Junior Achievement is a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to educate and inspire young people to value free enterprise, and understand business and economics to improve the quality of their lives. The programs, offered to students from K-12, provide hands-on training and skill development in the areas of personal finance, work readiness and business education. Dedicated JA volunteers teach in the classroom using their own work experiences to make the curriculum practical and realistic.

In the 2012-2013 school year, the organization reached more than 57,000 students in Connecticut.
