Board Break-a-Thons

Much of the funds raised to support the H.U. Lee Memorial Foundation come from events hosted at ATA schools around the country, including Board Break-a-Thon (BBAT) events. BBAT events are conducted in a variety of ways with each school owner customizing the event for their school and students. In general, ATA students and community members are asked to raise or donate money to participate in the event. On the day of the event, participants are challenged to break as many boards as they can. Most BBAT events also include entertainment, food and other activities to create a fun and festive atmosphere for the participants.

Each year during World Championships, the H.U. Lee Memorial Foundation hosts the Founder’s Gala. Guests enjoy a formal evening with dinner, live entertainment and live and silent auctions.
