Austin Spurs - Great Giveback Event!

Scott Ruprecht - Monday, November 28, 2016


 

Client purchases fueled another great giveback event this past weekend with The Austin Spurs

Six of our kids from Communities in Schools in Austin, TX had an on-court experience with The Austin Spurs, November 19. The Austin Spurs are part of the NBA's "D-League" and they play their home games at the H-E-B Center in Cedar Park. We thoroughly enjoyed working with The Austin Spurs and look forward to our next event with them!

Our Kids:

Gave "High 5s" to the players from the tunnel

Were recognized before the crowd at half-court after the first time-out

Had pictures taken with the cheerleaders

Received an Austin Spurs t-shirt

Part of the McDonald's "Small Fries" program

This was a very special event for them right before Thanksgiving.

Recent Testimonials

Scott Ruprecht - Tuesday, November 08, 2016


"I love that Giveback Sports, like TOMS, is a Profit + Purpose business. When a company leads with 'giving,' customers can engage in such a special way. I look forward to following Scott's continued success!" - Blake Mycoskie, Founder & Chief Shoe Giver, TOMS 

"It was great to work with Giveback Sports on a recent event at Great American Ball Park. We love their mission and look forward to working with them again."- Phil Castellini, COO, Cincinnati Reds

 “It makes so much sense for us, or anyone else, to buy their sports tickets through Giveback Sports. It’s a quick, easy transaction and the best part - it will benefit kids by giving them an experience they would never have otherwise. It can be life changing for kids to know someone outside their immediate circle cares enough to do something for them. We work for those kids every day so Scott’s mission dovetails nicely with our mission. We won’t go to anyone else when we need tickets in the future.” - Barbara Dundee, Executive Director, Marvin Lewis Community Fund

“Thank you again for today!! The boys had an awesome time. On the way out of the game they were all saying how great it felt to have something to do over the weekend so we really appreciate Giveback Sportsand their mission.” - Jordan Chaplik, Gus Garcia Leadership Academy

 "I'm buying sports tickets anyway. So for me it made perfect sense. Not only do I get to go to the games, but my purchases help send others as well. It is a simple, but uniquely generous idea." - Dan St. Charles, Customer

"Thank you so much for sending me and my classmates to a game. I really appreciated it because I have never been before. I had so much fun."- Saddia Kindrick, Westwood Elementary Student

"A wonderful idea with a great mission. I had a chance to use the service for sporting event tickets - quick processing, easy to use and heart-warming that proceeds go to help less fortunate children. Bye, Bye to convenience, jacked-up handling and 'just because' fees for me from now on. - John Yungbluth, Customer

"You have greatly impacted the lives of 11 boys and girls who attended your event. They not only had a life-changing moment in their lives, they witnessed how to treat people with care, selflessness and respect. Keep impacting lives and making a positive difference in our future leaders," - Rex Currin, Teacher, Holy Family School

"We really look forward to working with you on Nov 19 and help with your cause!" - Stephen Gray, Manager of Ticket Sales, Austin Spurs

"It was a seamless transaction. And on top of that a few hours later I received an email saying my purchase would help fund a Nov. 19 event with The Austin Spurs. So for me the giveback was tangible and I really liked that." - Scott Garrison, Customer

"I hope you do this giveback program for other kids so they can be excited like we were." - Noah Berry, Student

"Thank you for what you have done for our kids." - Mark Thompson, Teacher, Westwood Elementary & Head Baseball Coach, Elder High School

"If I can help your cause in anyway please let me know." - Gil Parra, University of Texas Athletics
