Selma, AL, October 24, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- For the fourth year in a row, the Black Belt Community Foundation (BBCF) is conducting its “Throw & Go Contest,” an annual fundraiser created by the BBCF’s Community Associates to support the Black Belt Leadership Development Program, Young Men and Boys of Color Initiative, the Black Belt Believe and Achieve Education Initiative, and the Community Grants Program. The prize is something well-sought after in the state of Alabama, a pair of tickets to the 2019 IRON BOWL (Alabama vs. Auburn Football Game) to be played at Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn, AL on November 30, 2019. The tickets were given by a donor to BBCF for the specific purposes of this effort.
BBCF President Felecia Lucky states, ”The winning combination of Alabamians' passion for football with their deeply seated values of giving and helping their neighbor is what makes “Throw & Go” such a successful campaign each year. This is a fun, team-spirited way for many people to come together to help their own communities!”
How to participate? Potential participants will be asked to give a $5.00 donation for a ticket which creates an entry for them into the prize drawing. All the tickets will be placed in a container, and one of BBCF’s Board of Directors will be randomly selected to pull one ticket from the container on November 18, 2019. The name that is pulled out will be the individual selected to participate in the Black Belt Community Foundation “Throw & Go Contest.” This drawing will be captured by video and shared to the media and public via social media for transparency. The BBCF Community Associate Program Officer or BBCF President will contact the contestant on November 18th immediately following the drawing. The Community Associate Program Officer will schedule the “Throw & Go Skills Contest” prior to the date of the Alabama and Auburn Football Game.
For the “Throw & Go Skills Contest,” the contestant will have three tries to complete a 12-yard pass to a BBCF Staff Member. The 12 yards are symbolic of the 12 counties that are in the Black Belt Community Foundation’s service area. Again, the skills contest will be captured by video for transparency and documentation of the integrity of the contest. For any questions related to Throw & Go, please contact Christopher Spencer at the BBCF office: 334.874.1126 or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. A complete list of the contest rules is available upon request and through the BBCF website, www.blackbeltfound.org.
