Pack Line Pledge Wrap-Up: Win a signed basketball!

New, comments

We’re giving away a basketball signed by Tony Bennett!

The National Champion Virginia Cavaliers wrapped up a successful 2018-2019 campaign not just by bringing home the hardware, but by holding 19 opponents to under 55 points this season! The end of the season means it’s time to close out our pledges to the One Love Foundation in honor of Yeardley Love.

As a group, at the time of this post, 48 of us collectively pledged $502.11 per game under 55, which brings this year’s pledged total to $9,540.09! On top of that, we had four bonus giving opportunities that many of you participated in this year:

  • Women’s Basketball (Each time the women’s team held an opponent to under 55): This happened 5 times, and 12 of you pledged, for a pledged total of $625.00.
  • Rounding Error (Opponents hitting 55 on the button): This happened one time, and 32 of you pledged, for a pledged total of $324.11.
  • Double Down (Doubling your amount for post-season Pack Line Pledge games): This happened twice (vs. Oklahoma and vs. Oregon), and 32 of you pledged, for a pledged total of $1,200.00.
  • Extra Credit (An extra $1 for each point under 50): This happened 11 times (a total of 56 points under 50), and 24 of you pledged for a total of $1,344.00

This brings our grand total to $13,033.20 if everyone who pledged does so now! It’s not too late to join the pledge!

Win a basketball signed by Tony Bennett!

Looking for a basketball signed by Virginia men’s basketball head coach Tony Bennett? We’ve got you covered! After you’ve made your pledge, return to this page and post a comment below with your name (as listed on the participant list below) and that you’ve completed your pledge. At the end of the week, we’ll randomly select one name out of the comments below! No purchase necessary—if you wish to enter without making a donation, just put your name in the comments below. We’ll post the winner in the comments and will reach out via email (either what we have from when you made the pledge or what you used to register here at STL). Terms and conditions apply.

Forgot how much you pledged? Scroll to the bottom of this post, where we’ve totaled the amounts for you. You can use the little CrowdRise widget to make your donation, which is tax deductible as the money goes straight to the One Love Foundation.

WBB Bonus: Each time the women hold one of their opponents to under 55, you make your donation! Last year, nine opponents failed to reach 55. Rounding Bonus: Is holding an opponent to 55 really any less impressive than under 55? Let’s consider it a rounding error and make our donations nonetheless. Double Down Bonus: We’re talkin’ bout the postseason! If the team holds an opponent to under 55 during either the ACC Tournament or the NCAA Tournament, double your donation! Extra Credit Bonus: When the team goes above and beyond, so do you! Pay an extra buck for each point when an opponent can’t even reach 50. Held to 48 points? Add two bucks to your donation.

And thanks to all of these fine folks who have already pledged their commitment to this year’s fundraiser.
