Awareness and Fundraising Campaign for Columbus After-School All-Stars
FOX Sports Ohio has partnered with the Columbus After-School All-Stars to raise awareness and funds for the non-profit organization. In a mission to provide free, quality comprehensive after-school programs that keep children safe and help them succeed in school and in life, Columbus After-School All-Stars provides comprehensive programming to elementary and middle school children.
FOX Sports Ohio has been working with Columbus After-School All-Stars to boost awareness of their causes through a series of PSA’s and features to run on the network. FOX Sports Ohio’s production crew visited Southmoor Middle School and Heyl Elementary School to gather footage. Columbus Blue Jackets Derek Dorsett, Derick Brassard, and John Moore joined the network’s visit to Heyl Elementary to speak with students about the importance of school and fitness as well as assist with sports clinics. The features shot at the schools will run on FOX Sports Ohio during Blue Jackets Live pregame shows.

FOX Sports Ohio has been a long-time supporter of Cleveland’s Domestic Violence and Child Advocacy Center (DVCAC), and this holiday season provides staff the opportunity to give their time. In mid-December, the DVCAC hosts the “Twinkle Shop,” which provides women and children in need with the chance to shop and give to their families over the holidays. FOX Sports Ohio employees spend the evening supervising children and helping them make holiday crafts and gifts.
