First Down Promotions is proud to welcome you to another exciting year of the Benefit Basketball Association. This is the 20th year of the BBA and its "Score Points Against Drugs" program. During the first 19 years, the BBA has helped raise well over $3.0million for local schools, recreation programs, church groups, D.A.R.E., and police and fire departments across the nation. We look forward to adding you to the list of over 500 satisfied organizations who have hosted BBA games. The BBA represents members of the twenty-three celebrity-packed NFL teams. Returning BBA teams include the Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, Chicago Bears, Dallas Cowboys, Denver Broncos, Green Bay Packers, Jacksonville Jaguars, Kansas City Chiefs, Miami Dolphins, Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints, Oakland Raiders, Saint Louis Rams, San Diego CHargers, San Francisco Forty Niners, Seattle Seahawks, Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The BBA also features an NFL ALL-Star Team.
To host a Benefit Basketball Game, a host organization must first apply to receive a date on the BBA schedule. A $50 non-refundable Application Fee must be submitted along with a completed Application Form. After your application is received, your organization will be given a contract with the date and time of your Benefit Basketball game. Once this contract is returned with the game fee, host organizations can begin to sell advertisements, sell tickets and promote the event. The game fee is needed to secure your organization's game date and will be used to pay players who participate in your event and to produce posters, tickets and programs. Information on each team's game fee can be obtained by reaching the First Down Office @ (650) 654-4444. It only takes a little hard work to generate significant revenue. In fact, over 97% of hosts put on successful BBA games over the past 19 years, averaging well over $2000 per game. First Down Promotions has set up a high quality, professionally structured fund raiser which will provide organizations with the tools necessary to be successful.
Thanks, FirstDown Promotions
