About the Nebraska Shrine Bowl

The Shrine Bowl of Nebraska is the state’s premier high school all-star sports event.  It is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that produces annual events and related activities to raise funds and awareness to benefit Shriners Children’s. Since its inception in 1958, the Nebraska Shrine Bowl has annually donated more than $2M to Shriners Children’s. Last year, the Nebraska Shrine Bowl raised more than $100,000 for Shriners Children’s.

Shriners Children’s is a healthcare system of over 200 access points committed to reaching as many children as possible, wherever they may live, and offering them unique, patient-centered, wrap-around care. For most of its history, the health care system has been known as Shriners Hospitals for Children. Shriners Children’s three-part mission has one goal: to change and improve lives by caring for patients, conducting research to gain knowledge and develop new treatments, and providing educational opportunities for physicians and other healthcare professionals. Children up to the age of 18 are eligible for care and receive all services in a family-centered environment, regardless of the patient’s ability to pay.
