About this Event

Ready to show your team pride?

Participate in ANSWER Scholarship's second annual Tailgate for Team Pride fundraiser on October 10, 2020 from 1-3 PM. This year we have gone totally virtual!

Tailgate for Team Pride is a fun, annual fundraiser for ANSWER Scholarship. ANSWER has provided college scholarships, mentoring, and professional development programs to Charlotte-area mothers of school-age children since 2006. Although we cannot gather in person this year, we are still planning on an afternoon of trivia, an online auction, 50/50 raffle, prize raffles and our Game Day program featuring our scholars.

For just $10 per person you can register and receive a link to our live ZOOM virtual event on October 10. Here you can play trivia, vote in our "people's choice" award for your favorite team, learn about ANSWER, purchase raffle tickets and purchase auction items. You should expect an email with the website links you will need by October 5th.

If you would like to create a team and compete against other teams for cash prizes, you can register a team for $200 (each team member must also register online for $10/pp to receive his/her personal link to the virtual fundraiser) . The games are best enjoyed in teams of 2-4 and smaller teams mean fewer people to share cash prizes with! You must be part of a team to be eligible to participate in our tailgate contests and win cash prizes. A team can be your family, a virtual group of friends, colleagues, etc.

Here are the team contest details:

CONTEST 1: Team Pride (People's Choice) Award: Each team will send one photo or a short video (limited to 30 seconds) to a designated event coordinator one week prior to the event. You can show your team's pride by dressing up, dressing up your pet, singing a song, creating a cheer, or whatever else you can think of! Everyone who has registered for the Tailgate will be able to view all submissions and vote on their favorite (for $1 a vote). The winning team chosen by popular vote will win a $500 cash prize.

CONTEST 2. Trivia Contest (Highest Scoring Team). Using Kahoot's free phone game platform, teams will compete in a general knowledge. The winning team will receive a $500 cash prize.

Your team can be any size. Since we are virtual, if your team of family, friends, etc. are not physically together, plan to chat with them via a conference call or group text to help you with the trivia questions.

Please contact Lu Ann Driscoll at 704.668.6526 or Ludriscoll56@gmail.com or Connie Dainty at 704.799-5813 or mdainty@roadrunner.com with questions, if you would like to make a donation of an auction item or gift certificate for our raffles, or would like to highlight your company or business by becoming a sponsor.

If you would like to make a donation directly to ANSWER - please go to www.answerscholarship.org.

Thanks in advance for your participation and support of mothers in our community! Learn more about ANSWER Scholarship at answerscholarship.org.


Once I register as an individual, what happens next?

On or about October 5 you will receive an email with three links: ZOOM, ReadySetAuction (our online auction) and Kahoot (download to your phone if you plan to play trivia). SAVE THIS EMAIL as you will need it to join the program.

The "Game Day" program will be a live ZOOM program.

You can view, bid and purchase auction items on ReadySetAuction. Once you receive your invitation from ANSWER to join ReadySetAuction you will need to register on RSA with a personal password and a credit card. At the end of the auction you will receive an "invoice" from the site with all of your charges for the auction, Team Pride votes, etc.

You can play trivia on Kahoot. You will need to download the free Kahoot app on your phone - everyone will see the game being played on ZOOM so if you want to play you will need to be using your phone to answer questions. You do not need Kahoot if you do not want to play trivia.

If you are on a team your team captain will receive a game pin number by text to participate in the trivia contest. We will have some games open to everyone and some games only open to teams competing for the cash prizes.

Once I register a team, what happens next?

On or about October 1 you will receive an email with the following information:

1. Information about where to send your video/photo contest entry that will be uploaded to our event website/auction website for everyone to view.

2. Game pin numbers will be texted to the team captain just before the game begins at the live ZOOM event. Only the team leader can submit an answer for an individual trivia question, but can get input from his/her team members before submitting.

3. A link to our auction website where you can view the team contest entries for the Team Pride award, purchase votes for your favorite team, purchase raffle tickets, purchase auction items and/or make a donation to ANSWER.

3. A zoom link for the Tailgate for Team Pride event day where you can view the trivia contest and halftime program.

Note that the $200 team registration fee does not include the $10 individual registration fee. Everyone needs to register as an individual even if on a team so that everyone has a personal invitation/link to join the various activities.

Refund Policy:

No refunds.

Auction Item Purchase:

Due to the current situation we may ask that local participants pick up auction items in Charlotte. Gift cards and other small items may be shipped.
