The pucks that go in the can win a cash prize that grows in value each night.

PLEASE READ! Even if your non-profit has run the Mavericks Chuck-a-Puck promotion in the past, this will help you make even more for your organization:
- Make Sure ALL Your Sellers Promote Your Organization —Yell it out and let fans know that you represent a great cause, and that purchases of pucks will go to help your cause!
- Wear Fun Clothing that Represents your Charity or Cause—Our “record breaking” charity wore colorful skirts and hats that had their organization’s information on it—they were interacting with fans and making them take notice of the charity and the Chuck-a-Puck promotion
- TELL THEM ABOUT THE CASH!—We have upped the minimum amount that fans can win to a minimum of $500 at EVERY GAME—Make sure all your volunteers are getting fans to know just how much they could win!
There are two major reasons why fans buy pucks:
- For the cash prize and other prizes!
- To generate proceeds for the charity selling pucks.
Be LOUD and PROUD about both the prizes and your cause and you will sell more pucks!
