Broomball Tournament & Young Lives Fundraiser


In the spirit of the Winter Olympics, the Chicagoland Young Life Junior Board will be playing broomball for a good cause! Join us at Johnny's Ice House West on Tuesday, March 6th to raise awareness and money for the Young Lives ministry here in Chicago. Young Lives exists to reach and love teen moms by entering their world, modeling the unconditional love of Christ, and encouraging them to become the women and mothers God created them to be.

To raise money (and have some fun) we will be hosting a broomball tournament. If you've never played broomball before, it's super fun and super easy - check out this video! No talent required! The winner of the tournament will be honored like true olympians at the closing ceremonies at Johnny's Bar upstairs.

WHAT: Broomball Tournement raising money for Young Lives. We will have a short presentation from the Junior Board and Young Lives during the event so you can learn more. All equipment will be provided. Feel free to wear thicker clothes; falling won't cause harm, but may hurt a little bit =)

WHERE: Johnny's Icehouse West - 2550 W Madison St, Chicago, IL 60612

WHEN: Tuesday, March 6th - 6:00PM - 9:00 PM (Broomball Tournament is from 6:30 - 8:30)

WHO: Anyone! Please invite your friends, family, and co-workers. This is an open event. We do however encourage all Board members to attend.

COST: $20 (includes pizza!) or $25 at the door. If you want to compete in the broomball tournament, bring $5 with you to the event and we can place you on a team. Your $5 to play broomball and a portion of the $20 will go directly to the Young Lives ministry right here in Chicago.

If you don't have a team, don't worry. When we get there, we'll form teams or add you to a team that already exists. Also, it is not required that you play broomball. There will be pizza, drinks for purchase, and some awesome people to hang out with while you watch.

We will have a combination of:

  • Social time
  • Problem solving for Chicagoland Young Life areas
  • Young Life-esque content
  • Learn more about serving opportunities

Our first speaker will be Brandon Barnholt, President and CEO of KeHe Foods

Under Brandon’s leadership, the company has grown from a dominant Midwest Specialty Distributor with roughly $600 million in revenue to one of the leading Specialty Food and Natural Products Distributors in North America – operating 12 warehouses in the U.S. and Canada and generating over $2 billion in revenue. 

Prior to joining KeHE, Brandon was the President and CEO of White Hen Pantry where he led a revitalization and growth initiative before it was purchased by the 7-11 Corporation. Brandon has held executive management positions for the past 20 plus years in the Retail and Supply Chain sectors of the Food Industry. 

Brandon is also a member of the Citywide Young Life Board and a good friend of Young Life staff throughout the city. 

**There will not be food at the meeting but many of us will head out for drinks at the conclusion of the meeting!

Young Life Junior Board Kick-Off Party

You're invited.

Chicagoland Young Life is excited to announce the official launch of our Junior Board! The Young Life Junior Board is a group of twenty and thirty-somethings who support the mission and values of Chicagoland Young Life in a meaningful but manageable way. Join us for a night that is inherently Young Life-esque, but geared towards you.

Enjoy appetizers, and a variety of craft beer along with a DJ spinning tunes all evening. You'll have a chance to hear about what Young Life in the city looks like, what the Junior Board is all about, and how you can get involved.
