Club for Boys free-throw challenge is a slam dunk fundraiser
The 27th year of the corporate free-throw challenge at the Club for Boys is underway.
RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA) - The 27th year of the corporate free-throw challenge at the Club for Boys is underway.
Dozens of businesses in Rapid City form five-person teams -- with each member shooting 25 free throws to try to win prizes and bragging rights, all while raising money for the Club for Boys.
This year, GrayTV’s team included Jack Caudill, KEVN Sports Director Padraic Duffy, Digital Content Manager Bri Schreurs, reporter Jeff Lindblom and meteorologist David Stradling.
The money raised stays directly at the Club for Boys to support their athletic program so that they can continue to charge only $12 a year for a membership.
”It is fantastic every time we get a new donation, whether it be basketball or something else they can use in here. They are always so excited, so it is always fun to be the one to bring it into the room,” Chantel McDonnell, Director of Development, says.
And at last check, GrayTV was leading the media bracket of the free-throw challenge, with Padraic Duffy, of course, leading in points scored.
