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.

Boys & Girls Clubs of King County (serving Greater Seattle) President Calvin Lyons said, “Like most of us, our kids are caught up in the excitement of the Super Bowl. The Boys & Girls Clubs Bowl will let kids make their own kind of history.”

The Denver Metro Boys & Girls Clubs are equally confident in their ability to raise funds. CEO Kathy Luna shared, “We are excited to take on this challenge and raise meaningful funds for Denver youth.”
