As part of Verve’s commitment to supporting community organizations, we sponsored the “Bucks for Baskets” free throw frenzy fundraiser at the Marian University Men’s Basketball game on February 4, 2017, with all proceeds benefiting the Sabres.

Fans racked up incredible free throw stats—and support for Marian Athletics.

Fifty fans rose to the challenge at the game, earning Marian Athletics $32 in free throw donations. Not only did Verve match the $32 in free throw donations, but we also threw in $2 more for each free throw made, amounting to a $100 donation from Verve. On top of the free throw frenzy, we also collected a $250 check made out to Marian Athletics. At the end of the night, Verve and fans together raised a grand total of $382 benefiting Marian Athletics!

Investing in and serving the community is really important to us, and we’re always looking for ways to get involved and give back. We know that participating in sports teaches teamwork, communication and problem-solving skills, and teammates become friends. We’ll sink a free throw to that!
