BEYOND THE GAME
Beyond The Game empowers youth to excel in all facets of life. With your help, we are able to change the lives of kids by providing them with opportunities to reach success in many aspects of their lives. Our program was founded in 2016 with the goal to touch as many young adults as possible. Today, we have reached over 3,600 kids through our Guys With Ties and Girls With Pearls programs as well as over 6,000 kids through different camps and events. In addition, we have had the pleasure of donating over $200,000 in supplies to families in need while impacting 7 different states. If you would like to donate to our cause, you can do so through the link below. We thank you in advance for your support and look forward to what the future will bring!
OUR RECENT WORK
Bourbon With The Buckeyes
Our young Guys With Ties & Girls With Pearls members helped to raise over $100k for our programs with the help of some of our Ohio State Buckeye friends, at our first annual Bourbon With The Buckeyes event! Our kids left a heartfelt impression on the guests by showing strong introductions, kindness, etiquette and leadership skills!
'23 Friday Night Lights Camp
Our 2023 FNL Camp served over 250 kids at the Pro Football hall of Fame Fields in Canton Ohio. A special thank you to Cleveland Browns Tight End Harrison Bryant, former Ohio State football star Braxton Miller & former Ohio State Football coach Jim Tressel for giving kids an amazing experience!

Guys With Ties Impacting Lives
Watch us on Fox28 with Maria Durant on how our Guys With Ties program is impacting lives! Fox28 news visited us at Violet Elementary in May 2023 to see how our program affects the children who are apart of it and to spread the word on how other schools in the community can join too!
