What is the shoe challenge?
We challenged all participating teams to raise as much money for this cause as possible. Over the past five years this has been a huge success, raising over $25,000 with the shoe challenge alone. We hope to meet or exceed last year’s total of over $4,000 by asking each TFH participating team to raise as much money as possible! The team who raises the highest dollar amount will receive the grand prize of women’s basketball shoes for each team member.
What are the prizes?
1st Place – Women’s Basketball Shoes Provided by Eastbay
2nd Place – Nike Gym Bags Donated by Eastbay
3rd Place – Nike Gym Sacks Donated by Eastbay
Who can the teams ask to donate money?
Anyone! We encourage all the girls on the teams to reach out to everyone they know for donations. This means grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles, friends, local businesses, etc. This will be largely an e-mail campaign.
How can people donate money?
When your team registers for the Tournament for Hope, a donation link specifically for your team will be created. You can send out this link to your potential donors, who may then make an on-line donation. Visa and Mastercard are accepted credit cards. All donations are tax deductible.
How will the winners be determined?
Only donations received by Midnight on Sunday, June 10th will be considered for the contest; donations received after this time, while gratefully received, will not be considered in determining contest winners. The highest dollar amount, as tallied with credit card donations and cash or check donations will be used when awarding the prizes. Please understand it will take some time to accurately tally the results. The organizers will announce the final winners by Wednesday, June 13th. The winners will be notified by a representative of Austin Wildcats. We ask that all teams keep in mind, that while the prizes are wonderful gifts and serve as a great incentive, the primary goal of the contest is good-natured competition, and to raise as much money as possible for the Breast Care Center at Seton Medical Center Austin. We want to show girls that they can make a difference in the lives of people in their community, and ask all involved to remember a spirit of sportsmanship.
