For $100, fans could purchase a printed likeness of themselves to occupy a seat at the Sweet 16, semifinal and championship games. The cutout promotion allowed fans to help fill the stands, while supporting the San Antonio Food Bank, which received $10,344 from the promotion.
“The pandemic has seen thousands more hurting in our community. Imagine the anxiety of not having food in the pantry. It breaks your heart,” President & CEO of the San Antonio Food Bank Eric Cooper said in a release. “These funds will help us ensure that no child in San Antonio or the region goes to bed hungry this summer.”
To celebrate the success of the promotion — which amounts to 70,000 meals — the Food Bank on Friday provided lunch to the Eastside Boys & Girls Club.
