Mayor’s Competitive Shootout Supports Local Programs
February 25, 2016 — When you give local mayors a worthy cause to get behind, one that makes their communities better today and into the future, they are more than willing to engage in a little friendly competition. The CENTURY 21 Mike Bowman DFW Mayor Shootout kicked off this week with Arlington Mayor Jeff Williams teaming up with UTA Women’s team. Mayor Williams swished 4 of 12 shots from the top of the key.
The competition continues tomorrow and will showcase mayors partnering with collegiate teams in a 3 point basketball shootout tournament. Community members, alumni and sports fans are invited to come out and cheer on their favorite mayor and teams. The February 26th Mayor’s Shootout will begin at 12 noon with Irving Mayor, Beth Van Duyne, and Grand Prairie Mayor, Ron Jensen, playing with SMU’s Women and SMU’s Alumni teams at Moody Coliseum. Then on March 9th at 2:30p.m., Fort Worth’s Mayor Betsy Price, winner of the 2014 Mayor’s Shootout, will team up with TCU Women’s Team at Ed & Rae Schollmaier Basketball Complex.
The Mayor’s Tournament will officially kick off the Little Big Shot Shootout, to be held March 26th and 27th, that allows players of all ages and abilities to have fun and show off their skills while raising funds for great causes. Two teams from each division, a total of eight teams, will advance to the finals and play at the American Airlines Center on the Dallas Mavericks court and will also attend the Dallas Mavericks vs. New York Knicks game that evening.
Funds raised during the competitive basketball shootout will directly benefit HOPE Farm of Fort Worth, New Horizons of North Texas and Nazareth Retreat Center. Little Big Shot is seeking business and individual sponsorships for teams that will be competing in the tournament.
