In addition to team registration fees, we
challenge each team to raise funds to give directly to Ozark Komen for
the Cure. We refer to this as your "Team
Challenge Donation" which is due at the tournament. (Fundraising
Tips) Since 2006, we've collectively donated $155,000 to Ozark Komen. Our goal for 2013 is $25,000. This would include each
team fundraising and contributing to the Team Challenge Donations, the
NWA Chicks donation of 20%
of profits & other
contest fees and additional direct donations.
Because Team Challenge Donations are
direct donations without a service, they are 100% tax-deductible as
dictated by law. An award will be given to the team with the
highest Team Challenge Donation in each bracket and an overall Grand
Director reserves the right to modify tournament format.
If you have any questions, or need additional information, please contact:
*The 1st 50 teams that complete registration
along with having their online roster completed, will be entered into a special
drawing. Two teams will be drawn to receive FREE event shirts
for the players (up to 12 qty). This is a prize value of approx. $145.00
for each of two teams!
(Prizes will be
announced prior to the shirt pre-order deadline date.
