Ice Bowl is disc golf’s oldest and most prominent series of charitable events. Since 1996, cities and towns across the US and Canada, as well as Europe, have held Ice Bowl tournaments and have donated over $4.5 million to charity, most of it going to help fight hunger in local communities.
We’re bringing Ice Bowl to a new level in 2020 by offering some unique models of Ice Bowl discs that can only be purchased here. For each disc sold, $5.00 will be donated to the World Central Kitchen, an organization that helps feed people anywhere in the world in the aftermath of both natural and man-made disasters, as well as helping these areas became more resilient in the face of future disasters. The WCK donation will be added to the total raised by the Ice Bowls being held this winter. The 2020 goal is to exceed the 2019 donation total of $335K+.
This year’s stamp was created by disc golf artist extraordinaire John Dorn, who has done most of the Ice Bowl stamps.
What is an Ice Bowl?
An Ice Bowl® is a disc golf event held in winter with a mission to increase local awareness of disc golf by raising funds for local and regional charities, with an emphasis on fighting food insecurity. Many Ice Bowls emphasize fun over competition, while burnishing a positive image for disc golf and disc golfers through publicizing the charitable fundraising with timely news releases. Ice Bowl began in 1987 as a single tournament in Columbia, Missouri in an effort to publicize the fledgling sport and to get more people playing. Raising funds for charity was added as a very significant component of Ice Bowl in 1996.
