Mattress Firm’s 12th annual Pajama Bowl is set for Sunday, April 2, from 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., at Acme Bow, 100 Andover Park Way, No. 100, Tukwila.

All proceeds from participating teams will help fund important extracurricular activities that foster children often go without, such as joining a sports team, learning a musical instrument or attending a field trip with their class.

Last year’s Pajama Bowl raised a record-breaking $170,000, and Mattress Firm is calling on participants to help raise even more funds this year.

Everyone comes dressed in their best PJs: think flannel, superman, footie, teenage mutant ninja turtle and stripes.

Gather your team of four or five people and sign up at PajamaBowl.com.

The minimum fundraising amount is $250 ($50/person).
