Golf Contest Helps Raise Funds for Basketball Team’s Charity

golf contest - 60-foot puttDamien Anderson, Internet Business Development Manager with Odds On Promotions shares how an aviation company in the Southwest managed to help raise funds for a basketball team’s charity by insuring a grand prize golf contest...

In order to help fundraise as well as improve their name recognition, an aviation company in the Southwest insured a putting contest at the charity’s 25th Annual “Jump Ball Gala” event, which featured appearances by Charles Barkley and Kevin Johnson (“KJ”) of NBA fame.

Individuals who made a donation at the event had the opportunity to participate in a 15-foot putting golf contest.  All those who successfully holed the putt then had their names placed in a bowl.  Out of all those who qualified, one lucky attendee’s name was drawn and they were given the opportunity to make a final 60-foot putt.  If they holed that grand prize putt, they would have been given the gift of flight — $20,000 in free private flight hours, paid for by Odds On Promotions.

Pssst – Remember the infamous Shot at Glory hole-in-one challenge at the infamous 16th green at TPC Scottsdale earlier this year, which Odds On’s sister company, Hole In One International, insured?  The aforementioned charity just so happened to be the title sponsor for that event!  Furthermore, the aviation company teamed up with Hole In One International to also insure a hole in one contest on three separate courses at Desert Mountain Golf Course in Scottsdale, Arizona!  What can we say?  Our clients just can’t get enough of us!

Golf Contests at the Toshiba Classic: Over $1,000,000 Insured!

golf contests at the toshiba classicWe’re happy to announce that Odds On Promotions, as well as our sister company, Hole In One International, both teamed up to help insure a couple of fabulous golf contests at the Toshiba Classic this year!  One on March 12, 2013, and the other will occur on March 17, 2013.

You may remember last year when we insured the Shot From the Top during the Toshiba Classic, which was insured for $10,000.  This time, they upped the ante quite a bit… and insured two separate golf contests which were worth over $1,000,000 in cash and prizes, compliments of Odds On Promotions and Hole In One International.

Golf Contests: Ball Within a Circle & Million Dollar Shootout

The first golf contest was a Ball in the Circle promotion, which occurred on March 12, 2013.  The contest consisted of five teams.  Each team contained one tour professional, one celebrity, and one media member.  Each of them teed off from the 10th hole at the renowned Newport Beach Country Club.  If the golf ball came to a complete rest within the circle on the green, that player would have been awarded $50,000… compliments of Odds On Promotions!  That’s five times the prize value of last year’s contest!  And it gets even better…

Million Dollar Shootout will also be held on March 17th, where two amateur golfers and one tour professional will have a chance to take a shot from the 185-yard hole #17 at Newport Beach Country Club for a chance to win $1,000,000, compliments of Hole In One International, should they end up acing the hole and making a hole in one!  Needless to say, we can’t wait to see how that golf contest ends up playing out and we hope to be privileged enough to insure a golf contest at next year’s Toshiba Classic as well!

Golf contests can be insured anywhere, any place, any time and are not only a great way to increase excitement, but increase fundraising dollars as well.  No matter what your specific goals happen to be, give Odds On Promotions a call at 888-827-2249 and we’ll help you come up with a golf contest that is best suited for your company/organization’s needs.  Need some ideas?  Check out our golf promotions page and feel free to email us if you have any questions, or have your own unique idea for a golf contest!  We look forward to hearing from you!

Golf Contest Worth $25K Insured at Golf Academy

golf contestLooking for a golf contest that will give your clients and customers something to talk about?  Then you’ll love this putting contest  story, which comes to us from a golf academy in the West, who teamed up with a local sports bar in order to achieve a few key sales and marketing objectives for both companies.

Prior to the promotional date, individuals who visited a local sports bar during Monday Night Football games received a raffle ticket.  At the end of the promotional period, 16 individuals were chosen via raffle to participate in the insured golf contest held at the golf academy: a 3-putt-combination putting contest, insured by Odds On.

Golf Contest: 3-putt Combination Putting Contest

Each finalist had the opportunity to make a 10, 30 and 43-foot putt; however, it was a process of elimination.  Those who made the 10-foot putt proceeded to the 30-foot putt.  Those who holed the 30-foot putt proceed on to the final 43-foot putt.  All 3 putts had to be successfully completed in order for a finalist to win the insured prize — $25,000, paid for by Odds On Promotions.

While unfortunately, no one was able to hole all 3 putts, there were some close calls and both companies — the golf academy and the sports bar — were able to better advertise their businesses.

Looking for a golf contest of your own?  Good news: you don’t have to be a golf course in order to insure one!  Whether it’s at your retail location, a sports game or otherwise, we can insure it!  For putting contests, be sure to inquire about our putting ramps!  Give Odds On Promotions a call today at 888-827-2249 or email us for a free, no-obligation quote!

Basketball Contest: 10-Person On-Court Putting Contest Insured!

basketball contest - on-court putting contestHere’s a fun basketball contest idea from a university in the South: an on-court putting contest!

At the game, 10 lucky contestants were selected to participate in this on-court basketball contest via registration forms. After being chosen, the participants came down to center court and each attempted a 50-foot putt!  If any of the ten contestants were able to successfully sink the putt, it would have meant some big prize money, paid for by Odds On Promotions, of course!

While unfortunately, no one ended up holing putt, the basketball contest was still a winner. The university reported that a few of the contestants came very close to winning the insured prize and the crowd thoroughly enjoyed the promotion!

Golf Contest Insured at 2013 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am

golf contestHave you heard the big news?  Odds On Promotions’ sister company, Hole In One International, insured a golf contest at the renowned PGA charitable event, the 2013 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am!  The contest itself is dubbed “The 3M Celebrity Challenge” and occurred Wednesday, February 6, 2013, at 11:00am.

Twelve celebrities (chances are you probably know of at least a few of them… do the names Ray Romano, Bill Murray and/or Kenny G ring a bell?) gathered at the 17th hole at Pebble Beach Golf Links for a chance to participate in a golf shootout contest!  If any of the twelve celebrity golfers ended up scoring a hole in one on the 170-yard hole, they would have scored $100,000 for their designated charity, paid for Hole In One International!

Golf Contest: A $100,000 Shootout for Charity!

The best part about Hole In One International’s hole-in-one and shootout insurance is that the coverage isn’t limited to one player!  Technically, if all twelve celebrity golfers were to have aced the 170-yard par 3 hole, they each would have landed $100,000 for their designated charity — again, compliments of Hole In One International!

“Insuring a major PGA event such as this one is undoubtedly great news for our company”, states Kristen Hansen, Marketing Assistant with Hole In One International and Odds On Promotions.  “The fact that we’ve been privileged enough to insure a golf contest at both the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, as well as the Phoenix Waste Management Open this year, is definitely a feel-good experience.  Being the golf enthusiasts that we are here at Hole In One International, it’s also exciting for all of us to watch the events live to see if we end up with a winner — or at least to see who comes close!”
