Colliers International | Pittsburgh and their families took to the (Arsenal) lanes this weekend for Junior Achievement of Western Pennsylvania’s (JAWPA) first Bowl-A-Thon of the 2016 season. Our two teams raised over $1,000 for financial literacy and education in Western Pennsylvania.

Maria Hanson, Client Services Advisor for Colliers International | Pittsburgh and JAWPA Young Professionals Board member, led the fundraising efforts and recruited her colleagues to participate. “As a newcomer to Junior Achievement, I am overwhelmed with the tremendous amount of support I have received not only from my fellow Junior Achievement Young Professionals Board Members, but also from my colleagues and their families.”

JAWPA programs are delivered by corporate and community volunteers and provides relevant, hands-on experiences to over 72,000 students from kindergarten through high school. 

“Colliers International | Pittsburgh proved their commitment to their community values this weekend and will continue to do so as our relationship with Junior Achievement develops,” Hanson continues. “I am humbled by my peers and excited for the upcoming opportunities we have to make an impact in our community through Junior Achievement and their mission.”
