Young professionals of Bergen County, N.J.-based firm Hunter Group CPA recently participated in a bowl-a-thon organized by the Junior Achievement of New Jersey.

Representing Bergen County for the New Jersey Society of CPAs, Hunter Group’s six-member bowling team raised $1,000 participating with other firms at Montvale Lanes.

The NJSCPA promoted the one-day multi-location fundraising event as a way for young professionals to give back and network.

According to Junior Achievement, all of the proceeds will provide financial literacy and college and career readiness programs to children in economically challenged communities throughout the state. Junior Achievement provides a curriculum to volunteers who educate area students on the virtues of free enterprise.
