Sam Hubbard Foundation
On Thursday, May 12th we hosted the annual Fowling Tournament at the Cincinnati Fowling Warehouse. Bengals fans and supporters got to match up with current and former Bengals in a game mixing football and bowling for a chance to take home the 2022 title. Besides a chance to meet and compete against their favorite Bengals, attendees also enjoyed a wide variety of drinks and Cincinnati food staples including LaRosa’s, Skyline Chili, Chick-fil-A, Gigi’s Cupcakes and UDF during the event.
The event raised over $47,000, and will help fund programs such as The Sam Hubbard Youth Football Camp, his Shop with a Pro Night, and Sam’s Thanksgiving Food Drive, in addition to the creation of future hunger-related programs with local community partners. Established in 2021, The Sam Hubbard Foundation exists to bring equitable access to food, education, and a healthy lifestyle for all Cincinnatians.
YOUTH FOOTBALL CAMP
On Friday, June 17th 250 kids ages 5-14 gathered at Moeller High School for the third annual Sam Hubbard Youth Football Camp. The camp was FREE for all athletes and featured hands on instruction from high school athletes and coaches. UC Football Coaches Luke Fickell and Kerry Coombs who coached Sam in college came to speak to the kids about what it takes to make it to the big leagues while Sam's teammates helped with the on-field drills. Joseph Ossai, DJ Reader, Cam Sample, Josh Tupou and Drew Sample were all on hand instructing the kids on how to play the game but more importantly connecting with them about life!
Leveraging Sam’s 2020 COVID19 fundraiser which provided over 250,000 meals for The Freestore Foodbank, the Ohio Fed campaign, in partnership with HOMAGE, will support Sam's commitment to fighting food insecurity in 2021 and beyond.
Every shirt sold from the Ohio Fed collection will provide 14 meals for Cincinnati’s Freestore Foodbank.
We would like to thank everyone who generously donated during the Bengals incredible Super Bowl run. We were overwhelmed with the outpouring of support for the foundation and cannot thank the community enough for coming together to support our efforts. Through your contributions in January and February we raised over $100,000!
The state of Ohio and the sport of football have done
so much for my family, and now I'm using that platform to give back to the very same communities that lifted me to where I am today.
