Dawgs Wear Pink - Fundraiser for Susan G. Komen Houston Chapter to Advance the Fight to End Breast Cancer Forever!
The Texas Dawgs believe in teaching our teams the importance of giving back to their communities and supporting organizations that help so many. This October our organization came together to raise awareness about breast cancer and to raise money for a donation to the Susan G. Komen Houston Chapter. We want to do our part to support the women in our lives and to advance the fight to end breast cancer forever!
Thank you parents, players, family members, friends and pets for showing your support out there for your Texas Dawgs! We were so proud to present a check to the Komen Houston Chapter in the amount of $2400!!!!! View the Dawgs Wear Pink photo campaign on Facebook of the Texas Dawgs family showing support >
Welcome to The Texas Dawgs March Madness Fundraiser:
We have established this pool in order to (i) raise funds for our 11U and 12U teams to help off-set World Series costs for our trip to Louisville Kentucky this summer; and (ii) have some fun with March Madness. The cost for entry is $12 for 1 bracket or $30 for 3. You can enter as many brackets as you want, however, and we encourage you to do so.
We will treat this pool similar to our Super Bowl square pools with winnings split between the team, the pool winners and administrative costs. We recently set the pool up at RunYourPool named 'Texas Dawgs Baseball'. If you are interested in joining the pool, please go to the following link and fill out the form:
Exact pay-out will not be known once we have a final number but if we gain 1,000 entries, which is our target that will raise approximately ($10,000-$11,000) and after about a 7% overhead we would pay out the winnings 70% to the Dawgs and 30% to the winner. Under this scenario , the winner would win $1,500, second place $750, third place $500 and the lowest score will win $50.
Payments may be submitted via Paypal and Venmo. The PayPal account is PayPal.Me/txdawgs and the Venmo account is @Rob-Kerrigan. Please make the payments between friends. Both accounts have a Texas Dawgs logo if you are unsure.
A brief reminder: Get your bracket(s) in before the pick deadline, which is Thursday, March 19th at 11:15 (CST) and make sure to review the pool settings. Only the main 64 teams that make up a standard bracket are included (i.e. the play-in games, or 'first four', are NOT included). Good luck to everyone. If you have any questions, please contact us at email@example.com.
After the success of the National Championship squares, it's time to launch our Super Bowl edition fundraiser.
We will pay out $800 total in prizes for each completed pool, with winners for each of the first 3 quarters and the game getting $150 for hitting the score and $50 for the winner of the backwards score each quarter (rules explained on the site). The remaining $1200 less fees for the web-site will go towards Dawgs for game related equipment costs and starting the funding for each World Series. As with the NCAA pools, we would love to get multiple pools completed if possible, but want to finish at least one. This will be our last fundraiser, until March Madness.
We know a number of you had family and friends locked out after the two NCAA pools filled, please let them know, they have another chance.

How to Donate
The Texas Dawgs are kicking off the first fundraising event with an NCAA National Championship game square pool. The link to the pool and password are listed below. We are hoping to complete at least one pool, which is 100 squares at $20 per square.
We will pay out $800 in prizes with winners for each quarter and the game getting $150 for hitting the score and $50 for the winner of the backwards score each quarter (rules explained on the site). The remaining $1200 less fees for the website will go towards Dawgs uniforms. These pools represent not only a fun way to be involved in a game when your team is home for the season but also a great opportunity to help fund the Dawgs.
