On Saturday, January 16, Jon Jay hosted his 5th annual Jon Jay FMSbonds Celebrity Bowling Challenge, which raised approximately $50,000 gross for Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade. Jay, San Diego Padres outfielder, Miami native and Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade alumnus, along with other Major League Baseball stars, celebrities and members of the public, joined in the fundraising and bowling fun. There were over 200 guests in attendance.
In addition to exciting bowling matches, guests enjoyed red carpet arrivals, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and more. Attendees were matched with the athletes to bowl. All event proceeds will benefit Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade’s Project Learn After-School Program, serving Club members in grades K–8.
Jay, who played baseball for years as a child at Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade, was happy to once again help give back to the organization that played an important part in his life. “We’re thrilled with the amazing response to this event. I’m looking forward to continuing to raise more funds for Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade in coming years.”
