Bowled Over at SYF

Everyone at SYF is “bowled over” by the incredible enthusiasm
and support of its annualBowling for Education events. To date, SYF has
benefited from five different bowling events, in five different cities – with
two more scheduled for November. SPG employees and SYF supporters have already exceed
expectations and broken fundraising records. When the bowling ball hits the
last pin, more than $700,000 from Bowling for Education events nationwide.
At SYF, we know it takes $1,000 to graduate a student from a
Simon Youth Academy, which means these events alone will assist 700 more
diploma-seeking at-risk youth. The money raised in these communities, stay in
these communities, which inspires event organizers to do more and raise more to
support SYF’s two major initiatives: Simon Youth Academies and Simon Youth
Scholarships.
Since the inception of this fundraiser in 2008, Simon Property
Group malls across the nation, with support of local businesses, have raised
millions for Simon Youth Foundation. The friendly-competition allows for a fun
night for all involved. Awards and recognition are given to the team with the
highest score, individual highest score and most marks in a game. But the
greatest reward is knowing that through Bowling for Education, Simon Youth
Foundation is able to igniting more hope in the lives of more students across
the nation.
