Atlas Professional Services Helps Raise Nearly $60,000 at Annual Bowling Event

Atlas Professional Services was proud to serve as presenting sponsor of the 10th Annual Because of Jason Bowl-A-Thon, held on August 27 at Pin Chasers Veterans in Tampa. With more than 450 people in attendance, the event raised nearly $60,000 for the Jason Ackerman Foundation.

The Jason Ackerman Foundation

The Jason Ackerman Foundation focuses on improving the lives of youth who face and/or have survived challenging circumstances through educational support and entertaining experiences. All proceeds from the Because of Jason Bowl-A-Thon support the Jason Ackerman Memorial Scholarships. Granted annually, these college scholarships celebrate youth who have survived health issues or life-altering circumstances beyond their control and continue to thrive and “pay it forward.”

“Giving back to the community is important to us,” said Greg Zolkos, CEO and President of Atlas Professional Services and a member of the Jason Ackerman Foundation board of directors. “We’ve been involved as a supporter in years past, but we were proud to step up as presenting sponsor for the 10th annual event. It’s always a great time for the whole family and we feel good about raising money for a very worthy cause.”

A Team Effort

The Because of Jason Bowl-A-Thon rallied support from generous individuals and organizations throughout the area. Tampa Bay Buccaneers cheerleaders and mascots from the Tampa Bay Rays and Tampa Bay Lightning joined the festivities. Silent auction items included dinners with local athletes like the NHL’s Tyler Johnson, sporting event tickets, memorabilia and jewelry. The 50/50 raffle totaled $6,000, and the winner graciously donated her $3,000 winnings back to the Foundation.

“It was great to see this level of support from our community and we appreciate all the people and organizations who came together for this event,” said Zolkos. “We especially want to thank our clients who were involved, including Pin Chasers, Stepp’s Towing and Ackerman Jewelers, and key partners Peak10 and TelAdvocate.”
