In 2018, Cincinnati’s premier sneaker boutique, Corporate, and Bigger Than Sneakers (BTS) created the Annual Cincinnati SneakerBall, a fundraising event which features a picturesque evening of entertainment, tuxedos, gowns, and of course, sneakers.
Each year, a different beneficiary is chosen for the event to support local youth-focused charitable organizations and initiatives. Our beneficiaries for SneakerBall have included: the Ohio’s division of Cleats for Kids, the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Charitable Care Fund, the Cincinnati Youth Collaborative, and Saturday Hoops. We’ve even awarded multiple $1,000 scholarships to students in the Southwest Ohio Area who are pursuing higher education.
