Congratulations to our Contest Winners!

Race to summer postSummer is here…so our “Race to Summer” contest has officially ended! The contest offered cash prizes for the 3 non-profits that added the most new members between April 1 and July 1. It also pledged $1 to non-profits for every new member added during the period.

According to our database, the top 3 non-profits were:

1) Big Brothers Big Sisters Lone Star: $1,000 prize
2) Animal House: $500 prize
3) Advocates for Adolescent Mothers: $250 prize

In response to the news, Big Brothers Big Sisters Lone Star says “We were so excited to hear that we won the 2014 Op4G Summer Membership Drive! The $1,000 prize will allow us to take 2 children off of our waiting list! That means 2 more children will benefit from a caring, consistent and positive adult mentor in 2014!”

Animal House was also thrilled. “We plan to use the $500 to help with the cost of Brigg’s surgery. He is having his 2nd ACL surgery on August 18th”.

Finally, Advocates for Adolescent Mothers reported “We will use the third prize winnings to support our Educational Empowerment Program. Through this program, we provide financial and socio-emotional support to young moms who are in college”.
