Half Court Shot Contest Winner Lucas Noble Scores $10K

Half Court Shot Winner - Lucas NobleBlacksburg, Va.. – Imagine winning $10,000 just because you downloaded an app. That’s exactly what happened to Virginia Tech Freshman Lucas Noble this past basketball season after he downloaded a student rewards app, and was randomly selected to participate in a half-court basketball contest. The goal of the promotion was to encourage adoption of and engagement with the Gobbler Student Rewards app, as well as entertain fans.

With that in mind, the Virginia Tech Marketing and Promotions team crafted a season long half-court shot promotion featuring the chance to win $10,000 at half-time during selected basketball games. On February 21, during a game against Clemson, Noble was the first of several randomly selected students to show up at the promotions booth, earning him the chance to shoot for dough.

According to the Assistance Director of Marketing and Fan Experience, “We ran the half-court show promotion during all of our ACC games. He was joking around about making the shot, then he went out and made the basket. It was pretty incredible. He was so excited after the shot, he was already talking about what he was going to do with the money.”

“Working with Linda has been awesome. She’s super responsive. When we called her the next day after the game, she walked us through everything. Odds On has been great to work with,” continued the A.D.

120-Foot Putting Contest Winner Scores $100K

Inver Grove Heights, Minn – You know the old adage ‘drive show, putt for dough’, right? Well, for putting contest winner Paul Shadle, a pilot from Rosemount, nailing not one, but 3 impressive putts landed him a South Bay pontoon boat (valued at approximately $75,000) courtesy of Nelson Marine, plus $25K in cash, to assist with taxes, during the 2018 Venture Bank Minnesota Golf Show.

The $100K Pontoon Putt, a fixture of the Minnesota Golf show, is not only a popular part of the show, it’s a fundraiser for First Tee. To qualify as a potential finalist for the Pontoon Putt Contest, attendees needed to first stop by the 1500 ESPN Tent during the first two and half days of the show and make a $5 donation for three chances to make a qualifying putt. Then, on Sunday, all the qualifiers returned for a “putt off”, to further narrow the field.

Shadle successfully holed his second putt on the initial qualifier, going on to win Sunday’s putt off, making him this year’s lucky finalist who got the chance to make a 120-foot putt for the grand prize.

And what it putt it was! Shadle’s winning shot was not only covered by the local media and CBS Sports, he was featured on the Golf Channel’s Morning Drive. What’s more, the big prize putt contest raised $4K for First Tee.

Are you looking for a way to make your sponsorship dollars work harder and smarter – off the golf course? Need fresh ideas for your next fundraiser? Want to add the thrill of big prizes to your next special event? Looking to have a putting contest winner of your own? Odds On Promotions can help.
