27 Sep 2022 BBCF Throw and Go Contest
The Black Belt Community Foundation (BBCF) annual “Throw & Go Contest” is kicking off again this year to support BBCF’s Community Grants Program. This year’s prize is a pair of tickets to the 2022 IRON BOWL (Alabama vs. Auburn Football Game) to be played at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa, AL on November 26, 2022. The tickets were given by a donor to BBCF for the specific purposes of this effort. 2022 has been BBCF’s most successful year of community granting yet with over 69 worthy community organizations receiving community grants totaling over $208,000.
How to participate? REGISTER HERE. With a minimum donation of $5.00, you will receive one ticket which creates an entry for them into a skills contest drawing. For $20 donations, you will receive one bonus ticket. For $50 donations, you will receive 5 bonus tickets, and for $100 donations, you will receive 10 bonus tickets.
All the tickets will be placed in a container, and a BBCF Board member will select one ticket from the container on November 15, 2022. The name that is pulled out will be the individual selected to participate in the BBCF “Throw & Go Skills Contest”. This drawing will be captured by video and shared to the media and public via social media for transparency. The BBCF Community Engagement Officer or BBCF President will contact the contestant immediately following the drawing. The Community Engagement 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.
