The Boys & Girls Clubs in Greater Seattle and Metro Denver are busy fundraising to see which city’s clubs can raise the most money in their own Super Bowl of fund-raisers. Through February 4, community members, supporters and football fans are encouraged to donate to these two Boys & Girls Clubs, with the goal of raising at least $48,000 each for Seattle area and Denver area clubs, in honor of Super Bowl XLVIII (48).
A double-dare fundraising challenge
If the Seattle clubs win the “Boys & Girls Clubs Bowl,” Denver clubs kids and staff must wear Seahawks colors. And if the Denver clubs win, then Seattle clubs kids and staff will wear Broncos team colors for a day.
The money from the Super Bowl XLVIII fundraising challenge will enable these Boys & Girls Clubs to continue providing programs that help the kids in their communities.
