Fundraising for Cystic Fibrosis Cure

BEF-Seal-hi-res1For the more than 30,000 Americans affected by cystic fibrosis, a fatal genetic disease of the respiratory and digestive systems, a cure would mean more anything. So in support of this population, BRAX Fundraising proudly helps fund the cystic fibrosis fight as a partner in the Boomer Esiason Foundation.

In 1993, former NFL Quarterback, Boomer Esiason’s two-year old son, Gunner, was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis and shortly thereafter he formed a foundation to find a cure. As a friend to Boomer, BRAX Fundraising stepped in to help in 2005 and has since donated more than $300,000 to the cause with a portion of sales from SpiritCups.

“Boomer was instrumental in helping BRAX initially score Major League Baseball licensing when our company was founded 15 years ago, so we decided from the very beginning that we would support his mission to find a cure for his son’s disease with every fundraiser we run. The Boomer Esiason Foundation is truly a great organization that not only funds research, but also transplant grants and college scholarships for people living with cystic fibrosis and we couldn’t be more honored to be a part,” said Peter Hexter, BRAX Fundraising partner.

$1,000 Back-to-School Bonus Winner!

Stafford Middle School, the smallest middle school in their Virginia county, was the lucky winner of our 2014 $1,000 Back-to-School Fall Fundraising Bonus and they couldn’t be more excited and thankful.

“WOW $1,000!  Stafford Middle PTO is thrilled to have won the 2014 BRAX Fall Sweepstakes.  Stafford Middle School is the smallest middle school in our county and that often presents challenges with programming and fundraisers.  For our school to have won out of all other schools and organizations in the country renews our hope that even the small guys can win.  Our sales representative, Suzanne Zolldan, was very helpful and fun.  Her assistance with our fundraiser definitely made a difference in sales. Thank you BRAX for providing this ‘spirited’ fundraiser opportunity and by offering this great sweepstakes!” – Janae Tschudi-Evatt, PTO President

Congrats TCYFL Cougars – Winners of the Football Equipment Giveaway!

Congrats to Heads Up Football participant Thurston County Youth Football League Cougars, winners of the 2014 Football Equipment Giveaway! With a community full of Seattle Seahawks fans, they loved our Super Bowl XLVIII Championship designs and can’t wait to put the $2,500 equipment grant toward helmet pad replacements and the “rip” tackling dummies used in Heads Up Football classes!

Hear is what TCYFL Cougars Franchise Head Coach, Jared Hubbard, had to say about his experience with BRAX…

“I discovered BRAX through USA Football and thought it was a great way to raise funds with very low administrative work for my Head Coaches. As Franchise Head Coach, I have 8 Head Coaches under me and although they understand the need for fundraising, it is not anyone’s favorite.

I spoke with my Sales Rep, Reed, and his advice and support were great throughout. He sent me the information pack and answered any questions I had right away. I devised a simple game plan for the product launch and away we went. For our area, having the Seahawks SB options available was a big hit. I ordered sample cups so our players could show potential customers what they would look like and let them know that if they sold four orders they could keep the cups. About a week into the presentation, Reed let me know he would give us a complete set of NFL cups to also use as an incentive. I gave that out to the highest seller who generated 19 orders!! It was very easy to setup and distribute the product once it arrived.

I will use a portion of the $2,500 to buy helmet pad replacement kits for some of our helmets. I am also going to order the “rip” tackling dummies they used at my Heads Up Football classes for all of our teams. I am 100% behind Heads Up Football and since I will be in my position as Franchise Head Coach for 4 more years (my youngest is 9), my coaches and I can impact a lot of young lives and change the game for the better.  

This was my first year as Franchise Head Coach and fundraising is always a challenge. I know the other 12 Franchise Head Coaches in our league and I plan on sharing my BRAX success with them. The product was a huge hit, and the ease of setup, team licensing and profit sharing plan ensure success!!”

“BRAX was one of the top fundraisers for our school!  We love selling BRAX in the fall because it makes great Christmas gifts for family and friends.  I ordered a variety of cups for everyone – students, teachers and even bus drivers!  The kids went crazy over the cups – the girls LOVED the pink NFL cups and the boys loved their team and military cups. BRAX is a fundraiser everyone enjoys.”

Columbia Youth Football League

The Columbia Youth Football League has profited almost $20,000 from BRAX Fundraising programs since 2011 and recommends other football leagues get on board as well!

“The Columbia Youth Football League (CYFL) has worked with BRAX Fundraising for the past several years and have been nothing short of impressed with the level of customer service and products that we have received. Fundraising plays an important role in our organization. The monies raised each year are used to replace equipment and purchase necessary organizational items. From the initial receipt of order forms through the distribution of the product, the BRAX representatives are very attentive and available. Great products, great customer service, great price and hassle-free…how a fundraiser should be! The BRAX products are a hit with our families year after year and they appreciate the variety of items offered. We would recommend BRAX Fundraising to any organization!” -Norma Jackson, CYFL Secretary/Fundraiser Chair.
