The Samuel Bell Memorial Foundation is dedicated to honoring the life of one of Chicago's most fun-loving, dedicated, generous, creative, funny, and wonderful individuals.


Sam's legacy of living life to the fullest (usually with style or a theme) is celebrated by the foundation through community engagement and youth leadership opportunities. The Samuel Bell Memorial Foundation hosts an annual kickball tournament where proceeds are donated to support individual scholarships for Chicago youth and to Sam's Charity of Choice, Midtown Educational Foundation, where he served a youth mentor and board member from 2010-2022. 


Sam's love for community will continue every year with an annual fundraising event hosted by the foundation. The First Annual Samuel Bell Memorial Foundation fundraising event, Bowlapalooza, will take place on Saturday, February 24, 2024 at Diversey River Bowl in Chicago.


Stay tuned for more details!
