Looking for something fun to spice up your 2-Day Walk fundraising? 2-Day Team “Got Pink?” and Team Captain Mary Klenk just scored a major win in 2016 with their “Super Bowl Squares!” Everyone loves the thrill of the win, and this simple pool could be adapted to any upcoming event- Final Four, Derby Day, opening day games for baseball fans, SEC rivalry games, etc.
Basically, individuals sign up for a square at $10/square. At the end of each quarter/inning/ period, if your square matches the last number of each team’s score, you win! $125 per quarter, per win for the “owner” of the square, and $125 for your 2-Day fundraising. So, in the example on the left, if at the end of any of the 4 quarters the Panthers’ score had ended with a 7 and the Broncos score had ended with a 3, A. Smith in the top left corner would have won $125! It works a lot like a 50/50 raffle- you raise money for your 2018 2-Day Walk (this model raises a $500 donation- half of your 2-Day Walk fundraising!), and your friends, coworkers, neighbors, etc. get a chance to win some extra cash too!
Once the squares are all sold, the best way to fairly distribute the squares is to simply pull names out of a hat. For ideas on adapting the grid for other sports, simply google, “100 squares for derby day/ March Madness/etc.”
