As part of its effort to support the community of Charlotte, the company will donate 10 percent of ticket sales to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Charlotte, in addition to donating 16 game sets. “We are proud Charlotte entrepreneurs who hope to inspire kids to follow their dreams and get up and move, and this is one small way we hope to make a difference,” shared Allen.
“Holding the first ever National Championship in my hometown of Charlotte, NC is very special. There was no doubt in our minds that the first champion had to be crowned in the Queen City,” commented Allen.
“At our Boys & Girls Clubs, we are consistently encouraging our members to live active, healthy lifestyles,” said Marty Clary, executive director for The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Charlotte. “We are thankful for this opportunity to partner with BULZiBUCKET. Our members are sure to have a blast playing the game at our Clubs, and the additional funds will help us continue our mission to provide a safe environment during out-of-school time for kids in our community who need us most.”
“We are extremely excited to host the first BULZiBUCKET National Championship tournament at Lenny Boy. We always have BULZiBUCKET for our customers to play at the Taproom on a daily basis. Many customers have been practicing in anticipation of this tournament and the awesome prize package. Lenny Boy works great as a venue for the tournament as we have a large parking lot and are within walking distance from the New Bern light rail station. We also offer something for all ages participating in the tournament including non-alcoholic kombucha, traditional beers, sours and food. We are all looking forward to Aug 3rd and hosting the first BULZiBUCKET National Championship,” said Nathan Villaume, owner of Lenny Boy Brewing.
In conjunction with the national tournament, BULZiBUCKET Game Sets are being sold for 14% off on Amazon today through the end of June.
