Vote for DC SCORES for Stay Classy award

Vote for DC SCORES in the Most Creative Fundraiser category of the Stay Classy awards.

If you haven’t heard about what DC SCORES Executive Director Amy Nakamoto organized and then executed in late June, it’s worth a brief recap.

Facing a large budget shortfall, Nakamoto quickly put together a fundraiser during which she juggled a soccer ball for 12 hours on consecutive days on a busy DC street corner – in 100-degree, stifling heat. She only took breaks to make calls to donors, and by 7 p.m. of the second day over $50,000 had been raised.

The Kick, Click, & SCORE Challenge was truly unique, a first-of-its kind soccer fundraiser. An extremely creative – and very successful – fundraiser.

Now, it’s a FINALIST for a DC Stay Classy Award in the Most Creative Fundraiser category. A perfect fit, right? Until Oct. 22, it’s up to you, our supporters, to VOTE for us – it’s really simple and quick – and spread the word through all your communication channels.

If we beat out the four other District charities, we’ll advance to the national round of voting with a chance to win $10,000 for our nearly 800 poet-athletes and be nationally recognized at a gala in San Diego.

This is a great opportunity for DC SCORES to gain publicity for the service we provide throughout the District, and all it takes is a few minutes of all our supporters’ time.

One of our core values is Teamwork, and as clich├ęd as it sounds, we’re going to need an all-around team effort to win this award.
