Bowl-Well Fundraiser

As the holidays approach, we wanted to celebrate a great year with all of our staff while also celebrating a great cause!

We are asking for friends and families to help participate by donating on behalf of a Play-Well staff member that they know. Donations will go directly to our non-profit, Play-Well Outreach, which allows us to teach our Engineering with LEGO programs to under-served communities throughout the country.  More information regarding Play-Well Outreach is listed below.
