Friday April 15th: 6pm-10pm

Saturday, April 16th: 8am-5pm

WHY: Launched in 2008, Ballin for a Cause was created to raise awareness for local charities, non-profit organizations and drive initiatives around the BFAC ‘Big Four’ major causes:

1. Education: The “It’s More than a Game” speaker series, teaches students about the importance of higher education, having good character and how to be a leader in the community from Buffalo’s own professional athletes that they know and admire. BFAC also supports higher education. Since June 2012, the organization has raised more than $10,000 in scholarship funds for the Jireh D. Williams “We Achieve” scholarship.

2. Community: Throughout the year, BFAC donates to various charities such as holiday toy and food drives. Since expanding nationally, BFAC has also started giving back to the communities in cities holding qualifier tournaments, like donating more than 100 cases of water for the Flint Water Drive. During the tournament weekend, BFAC will host the Kicks4Kids sneaker drive, accepting gently used sneakers, shoes and boots to donate to school-aged children in need. This year, BFAC will also be accepting school supplies.

3. Youth Sports: BFAC provides funding, equipment and coaching staff for youth sports organizations such as the Sports Academy Youth Leadership and Sports, New York Warriors Youth Football and Cheerleading, Crown Basketball and Sports Academy Dance. Most recently, BFAC partnered with Buffalo Ravens to provide free basketball clinics youth ages 8-14 on Saturday Mornings. We will also host a skills clinic for Youth in partnership with Odds2beat Inc., run by Greg Gamble.

4. Health and Wellness: BFAC is partnering with Gene Coplin, local fitness trainer and founder of Icopelifestyle, to provide free fitness classes to lucky winners during the BFAC tournament weekend. In addition, Coplin will be on site at the tournament sharing tips, tricks and vital health information.
