What?

The Federation's Annual Charity Bowl-A-Thon provides professional networking, team building and socializing opportunities for corporate employees through a friendly competition that also achieves rewarding charitable goals. Last year, over 70 guests competed and raised a total of over $17,000 to support community agencies with programs battling poverty and hunger. This year, we will bowl to help disadvantaged Asian American children to access resources like safe afterschool programs or medical care they need to build healthy minds and bodies.



How?

Through these simple steps, participants will enjoy a fun-filled event while benefitting children by simply doing the following:

Bowl to Help Asian Children Living in Poverty

Poverty in the Asian American community is largely unknown. 1 in 5 Asians in NYC struggle in poverty, 25% of whom are children. They come from neighborhoods where violence and gangs are common. Due to the economy, families and parents have lost their jobs or are now being paid even less. Their children are at risk of not getting medical attention if needed because their parents cannot afford treatment, or because parents work long hours, their children are left unsupervised after school which can potentially lead to neglect, bullying or getting mixed up with street gangs.

You can help these families and children find resources to doctors and medicine, and to safe afterschool or weekend programs, where they can find tutoring for homework, be mentored by a big brother or sister, and engage in arts, sports and cultural programs.

Please help us to help them. This event raises money for human service agencies that meet the needs of disadvantaged families and children. Any donation will touch a life. All donations are 100% tax deductible.


Corporate and Matching Donations Are Also Welcome!
