Risk Millions for Fame and Bragging Rights Against the Best in the Business!
Experience the thrills of a simulated stock market while making a very real investment in the lives of individuals with Down syndrome!
At the Up the Down Market Dinner, you and your team will go head-to-head with the heavyweights of the financial industry, buying and selling shares in fictitious companies to see who can make the most money without going bankrupt in the process. News bulletins delivered throughout the evening by BNN fuel the trading frenzy as competing tables brave the ups and downs of the market and vie for the coveted Up the Down Market trophy - and bragging rights for the next year.
As you play, you’ll be investing in something more significant than just stocks and bonds. Through Up the Down Market, a deposit is made toward a brighter future for individuals with Down syndrome - a compounding investment which pays lifetime dividends to so many families.
Innovative in nature, wide in scope, and entertaining in practice, Up the Down Market Dinners have collectively raised over $5.4 million, and indirectly, much more. Make dreams come true - invest today.
