Tom Gill Chevrolet Hopes to Help Boone County Youth Soccer Association Score Big
Tom Gill Chevrolet teams up with Boone County Youth Soccer Association to help raise thousands of dollars for youth soccer program
Florence, Sep. 12, 2011 – In the spirit of teamwork taught by youth sports, Tom Gill Chevrolet is teaming up with Boone County Youth Soccer Association to provide their players and coaches with soccer kits filled with equipment bags, soccer balls, sport cones, scrimmage vests and t-shirts, a sponsorship check and an opportunity to help them raise funds.
Boone County Youth Soccer Association will have the opportunity to raise as much as $10,000 through a fundraising opportunity where one lucky recipient will win his or her choice of a 2011 Chevrolet Equinox or Cruze. Another lucky winner will receive a Home Entertainment Package.
Tom Gill Chevrolet and other Cincinnati-area Chevrolet dealerships are donating these prizes to participating leagues in the area. One-hundred percent of the proceeds collected from the fundraiser go directly to the leagues. The funds may be used in any way the league chooses.
A one-time sponsorship check will be presented by Tom Gill Chevrolet to Boone County Youth Soccer Association. The league also will have an opportunity to raise additional funds for their use as part of a Chevy Youth Soccer Fundraiser. Sponsored leagues across the country will each receive 2,000 fundraiser entry tickets to distribute for a suggested donation, and the league will keep 100% of the proceeds raised. At the end of the fundraiser, there will be four winners of a Chevy Equinox or Chevy Cruze vehicle of choice (up to $24,995 in value), and in each participating market there will be a secondary prize of a home entertainment center valued at $1,000.
Some leagues plan to grant scholarships to families who cannot afford to enroll their children in the league, while others will use the funds to improve fields and equipment.
“We are proud to be able to help the kids in our community by donating equipment and giving them the opportunity to raise much-needed funds for their league. We are excited to be part of the effort this year, and anticipate a fun-filled season with Boone County Youth Soccer Association” said Randy Rahmes, General Manager for Tom Gill Chevrolet.
