Hoosier Ticket Project to Launch Inaugural Giving Blitz Thursday, July 21
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – The Hoosier Ticket Project will launch its first Giving Blitz, an online fundraising drive. Scheduled for Thursday, July 21, the Giving Blitz is a nationwide 24-hour fundraising campaign to promote the project’s mission, share its impact on the community, and raise funds for the 2022-23 football and basketball seasons.
Since its launch as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in January 2022, the Hoosier Ticket Project has raised more than $30,000 in tickets and monetary donations to send more than 325 fans to Indiana University basketball games.
“The response to our launch in December has been nothing short of amazing,” Josh Bruick, CEO of the Hoosier Ticket Project said. “The selflessness and generosity of Hoosier Nation has inspired us to continue growing the reach of the project and get as many deserving individuals to Indiana games as possible.”
The campaign goal for Giving Blitz is set at $10,000, which has been kickstarted by corporate sponsorships from Farrall Wealth
, Homefield Apparel
, the IU Credit Union
, and Kyle Taber REALTOR
“This summer our focus has been to grow our relationships with youth organizations by holding special events and enhance the gameday experience for individuals who have never attended an IU game,” Amanda Pavelka, director of engagement, explained. “With the help of our gameday partners and a successful Giving Blitz, we will be able to achieve this.”
The 24-hour online fundraising event will officially launch Thursday, July 21, at 12:01 ET. Participants can direct their monetary gifts to the Giving Blitz webpage which will be released the week of the event.
Engaging social media initiatives will be shared the week of HTP’s Giving Blitz.
