About Stay Barefoot

For nearly 130 years, local Toledo kids have counted on the Boys & Girls Clubs to be their safe haven away from the stress and danger they encounter in their daily lives.   Amidst global pandemic, additional burdens of high unemployment, rising rates of abuse, and current demonstrations and unrest, our members need you now more than ever.

The pandemic has also impacted our traditional fundraising plans.  In lieu of hosting Barefoot at the Beach, presented by Fifth Third Bank,  as we typically do on the shores of Maumee Bay State Park, this year we are asking that you simply “Stay Barefoot” with a gift to support the work of Boys & Girls Clubs of Toledo.

The “Stay Barefoot” Campaign will run all summer, and include a virtual event to stream on Facebook, Instagram,  Youtube and on our website on August 15, 2020.

We are asking the community to buy “tickets” or sponsor this campaign, to help the Clubs continue to serve youngsters through 2020. Return the enclosed card, or visit www.barefootatthebeach.org to participate.

With each ticket or sponsorship purchase, donors will receive an allotment of “Sand Dollar” coupons, in $5 increments. These can be used at a bevy of participating locations through September 8th. This way, you can dine at your favorite Barefoot vendor or purchase party supplies for your own Barefoot watch party.

Save the date , as we plan to be back on the beach for our 20th anniversary Barefoot at the Beach, August 14, 2021 .
