Buckets for Bounce

A 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament to benefit Bounce Children’s Foundation™

What is Buckets for Bounce?

Buckets for Bounce is a 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament presented by the Emerging Leaders Board to benefit Bounce Children’s Foundation. 128 players will tip-off for a day of fun and friendly competition on the courts, while spectators cheer them on and engage in a variety of games, contests, raffles and activities. Eat to the Beat listening to the FeelGood Party Band while enjoying delectables from the one and only Fat Shallot Food Truck.  Best of all meet Bounce kids and families!

Why Buckets for Bounce?

Proceeds from Buckets will directly support to children with chronic illnesses and their families, helping where they need it most – outside the hospital. While many organizations assist hospitalized kids, things change once they are at home. Kids and families are suddenly on their own. But they still need psycho-social support and ongoing input from experts, as well as inclusion in a community where they can share with, and support, others who walk a similar path.

Bounce is unique – it recognizes, honors, and supports these needs through its five programs that include family adventures, education to build coping skills, access to resources, and focused networking for all because, when a child is diagnosed, the entire family is diagnosed. Bounce fills a critical gap in the overall care and health of seriously ill kids and their families, but we need your support so join us at Buckets for Bounce and see for yourself the difference Bounce makes in the community!
