On Saturday, January 31, St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Jon Jay will host the annual Jon Jay FMSbonds Celebrity Bowling Challenge to benefit Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade. Jay, a Miami native and alumnus of B&GC, will spend the evening bowling with event attendees and children of the B&GC.

“We’ve been thrilled by the enthusiastic response to this event, and we’re looking forward to raising even more funds for Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade in 2015,” said Jay.
The evening will begin with red carpet arrivals and pictures with Jay before moving inside for bowling matches and other activities. Guests will also enjoy cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres.
“We’re grateful that for the third consecutive year, Jon Jay is partnering with Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade for this wonderful community event,” said Alex Rodriguez-Roig, president of Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade. “With the efforts of individuals such as Jon, we continue to make a difference in the lives of many area youth.”
