Jack Maxton Chevrolet teams up with Olentangy Youth Athletic Association to help raise thousands of dollars for youth soccer program
Worthington (September 23, 2010) – In the spirit of teamwork taught by youth sports, Jack Maxton Chevrolet is teaming up with Olentangy Youth Athletic Association to provide their players and coaches with soccer kits filled with equipment bags, soccer balls, sport cones, practice jerseys and t-shirts, a monetary donation and an opportunity to help them raise funds.
Olentangy Youth Athletic 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 2010 Chevrolet Equinox or Malibu. Another lucky winner will receive a Home Entertainment Package.
Jack Maxton Chevrolet and other Columbus, OH-area Chevrolet dealerships are donating these prizes to participating leagues in the area. One-hundred percent of the proceeds go directly to the leagues, and they can use the funds in any way they choose.
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 Olentangy Youth Athletic Association,” said Suzanne Williams of Jack Maxton Chevrolet.
A one-time monetary donation check will be presented by Jack Maxton Chevrolet to Olentangy Youth Athletic Association. The league also will have an opportunity to raise additional funds for their use as part of a Chevrolet 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 proceeds raised. At the end of the fundraiser, there will be four winners of a Chevy Equinox or Chevy Malibu 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.
