DETROIT – The Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeastern Michigan (BGCSM) has recruited major star power to help raise funds for their COVID-19 relief efforts.

The virtual event will feature celebrities “taking over” BGCSM’s newly launched virtual club. Celebrities will compete against each other and club youth in games like Family Feud, Shazam and Bad Jokes. Additionally, Big Sean will host a 16 bars rap challenge. The public can join the fun by purchasing a Virtual Club day pass for $250. 

To register visit Limited space available. All proceeds benefit BGCSM’s COVID-19 Relief efforts. The Thursday 2 p.m. CST event is presented by Amerisure, Sean Anderson Foundation, iHeartRadio, Comcast, and Coca-Cola Foundation. 

BGCSM Virtual Club provides daily programming and mental health breaks for club youth ages 8-18. The fundraiser will mirror the daily virtual club experience which includes a live DJ, interactive games and skill challenges.

BGCSM has a $2 million funding gap created by the COVID-19 pandemic, club closures and fundraising event cancellations. Additional resources are needed to provide daily virtual programming, family wellness checks and facilitate plans to reopen select clubs for essential workers.
