Tyler – Hall Buick GMC of Tyler is partnering with East Texas Pop Warner to provide the league’s players and coaches with equipment, a monetary donation, and a chance to raise up to $10,000.
In support of Tyler’s youth, Hall Buick GMC will provide East Texas Pop Warner with football kits, which include equipment bags, 5-gallon water coolers, first-down marker chain set, helmet-sticker decals, and t-shirts.
Offering additional support to the community, East Texas Pop Warner will have the opportunity to raise as much as $10,000 through a fundraising opportunity where one lucky recipient in the South Central Region of the country will win a new 2012 GMC Terrain (MSRP not to exceed $29,000). Hall Buick GMC and other Tyler-area GMC dealerships in the South Central Region are donating the vehicle to the participating leagues. One second prize winner will be selected from the Tyler-area to win a Tailgating Package (grill and $100 gift card). One hundred percent of the proceeds go directly to the participating leagues, and they can use the funds in any way they choose. Some of the leagues have reported they plan to grant scholarships to families who cannot afford to enroll their children in the league, while others have said they will use the funds to improve fields and equipment.
“GMC and youth football. It’s a great combination,” says Monte Hall of Hall Buick GMC. “We are proud to be able to help the kids in our community by donating equipment and giving them the opportunity to raise much needed funds for their league. We are excited to be part of the effort this year, and anticipate a fun-filled season of East Texas Pop Warner football.”
