The Fundraising Committee is proud to announce the first Fort Bend Texans Hit-A-Thon ! This fundraiser is a great way to help fund your player’s season fees and travel expenses and to support the Fort Bend Texans. This fundraiser is completely dependent upon each player to determine the amount he will raise. We ask that everyone identify a minimum of five $20 sponsors, but the sky is the limit on the amount you can raise!
Our first Hit-A-Thon will take place during evening practices the week of April 10. Prior to the event, players will request sponsors to commit to a rate per foot or a flat donation amount (suggested $0.05/foot.) During the event, each player will hit 10 pitches and coaches will measure the total ball distance of the 10 combined pitches. Following the event, players will notify their sponsors of the total distance and collect the resulting sponsorship amount. Sponsors may wish to donate a flat fee (eliminating the need to follow up after the Hit-A-Thon event.)
All funds raised at the Hit-A-Thon will be split between the players and the Fort Bend Texans:
70% to the Player’s Account
20% to Fort Bend Texans Operating Fund
10% to the Fort Bend Texans Scholarship Fund
Sponsors can make their donations online , in cash or by check (payable to the Fort Bend Texans.) Donation Sheets and money need to be turned in at practice on Monday April 17. Please note that the Fort Bend Texans are a 501©(3) tax exempt organization and all donations are tax deductible.
Thank you for supporting the families of the Fort Bend Texans!
