Sean Rose Starts Free Throw Contest to Support Worcester Together Fund

by | Mar 23, 2020 | Headlines, News

WORCESTER – With so many staying home and practicing social distancing in light of the coronavirus pandemic, people are looking for unique ways to stay both active and involved in the community.

District 1 City Councilor Sean Rose has come up with an idea that fits both criteria: a free throw contest to raise money for the Worcester Together Fund — a fundraising coalition between the City of Worcester, United Way of Central Massachusetts and the Greater Worcester Community Foundation to help fund immediate basic needs and long-term local relief efforts for COVID-19.

Rose is encouraging everyone to take 20 free throws — with the five people who make the most free throws winning a $25 gift card to a local restaurant.

All it takes is a $10 donation through Venmo to @Sean-Rose-13 and then post your 20 foul shot attempts on Facebook and “tag” Rose in your post. Each entry is $10, but participants can enter more than once for $10 each entry.
