Sleep Country PJ Bowl


For the nearly 20,000 foster children living in the Northwest, each day presents new challenges. But with the community’s help, these children can regain a sense of hope. Funds raised by Pajama Bowl participants will be used to provide resources, and little wishes that foster kids often go without – whether it's a funding athletic participation fees, obtaining assistance in school, or reuniting with a sibling at summer camp. Since its inception, Pajama Bowl has raised over $900,000 for foster kids, thanks to the generous support of over 6,500 participants! Click here for locations and dates!
