Extraordinary plans are underway for The Malcolm Jenkins Foundation’s 6th annual fundraising gala, Blitz, Bowties, Bourbon and Beyond (formerly known as “Blitz Bowties and Bourbon).  The highly anticipated annual event, hosted by two-time Super Bowl Champion and Philadelphia Eagles Pro Bowl Safety Malcolm Jenkins, will be held on Monday evening, October 7, at the Lincoln Financial Field West Club.

Continuing with its tradition of elegance, excellence and experience, TMJF will take its guests ‘beyond’ the  premium experience of  notable chef tastings, bourbon cocktails, soulful sounds and exclusive live and silent auctions, with an exhibition showcasing the history and impact of its innovative and transformative programs that have made a difference in the lives of youth and communities at large.  The upscale event offers an exciting opportunity for business leaders, philanthropists, celebrities and the community at large, to support TMJF’s efforts to address the need for free, quality educational programs for youth in underserved and marginalized communities.  

Funds raised at Blitz, Bow-Ties, Bourbon and Beyond (B3 + Beyond) will support the Foundation’s free youth programs and initiatives including Get Ready Fest™; Holiday Dinner Basket Surprise; Young Dragons Summer STEAMNext Level Youth Football Camp and Tumbling Camp for Cheerleaders; and Project R.E.W.A.R.D.S (Reinforcing Education With Activities, Recreation and Developmental Supports). 

The spectacular evening of charitable giving and entertainment begins at 5:30 p.m. for VIP ticket holders and 7:00 p.m. for general admission ticket holders. VIP ticket holders will be granted early access to an exclusive pre-event mixer, a tour of the Linc, along with a Philadelphia Eagles logo football personally signed by Malcolm Jenkins, his Philadelphia Eagles teammates and NFL players joining the festivities; as well as other premium gifts.
