The Withrow High School football team of Cincinnati, OH has heart, has dedication and has drive. They have a coaching staff that cares deeply about them, volunteers who would move mountains for them, and a support system that loves them. They have talented players and gifted students. What the program DOESN'T have is money for basic things like new equipment, college visit expenses and nutrition. They are behind before they even take the field without the financial support. There simply isn't any pipeline, and that's why fundraising is so critical to a program like ours.
Enter 2020 #1 Draft pick and Cincinnati Bengals Quarterback, Joe Burrow. Burrow acknowledged in his Heisman Trophy speech the importance of organized sports especially in inner-city schools, and that couldn't ring more true with the Withrow High School Football Program. After hearing our story, he has graciously given us a signed jersey (something he doesn't do often!) to raffle off to raise money for the football program. Each ticket sold goes directly to the program to help these student athletes through feeding them, helping with academics, buying program essentials and more. Every dollar raised is critical!
We have professionally framed the jersey, and it will be a treasure to any Bengals fan or avid sports memorabilia collector. You may purchase as many tickets as you would like. The raffle will run for 3 weeks and close on Friday, Oct 29 at 5pm EST. The winner will be drawn during halftime of their game that evening. You do not need to be present to win. We will ship to the contiguous United States. Even if you aren't the winner, thank you for your support of these amazing young men of the Withrow High School football program by purchasing your raffle tickets! It truly will provide essentials that can alter a life.
