Police officers put their lives on the line for the community every day, yet most don't receive financial aid to fund a college education for themselves or their family members. The Hoops for Blue Scholars fundraiser builds the endowment for the One Hundred Club Scholarship created in 1998 to support the Corpus Christi Police Department. Your gift directly benefits Corpus Christi police officers and their family members who attend Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi.
Make a pledge or gift to Hoops for Blue Scholars and get a free ticket to the big game on Feb. 11!
By pledging so many dollars for every field goal (2- and 3-pointers) the Islanders Men's Basketball team scores against the Sam Houston State Bearkats at the American Bank Center on Feb. 11, you'll be helping our men and women in blue. You'll also receive a *free ticket to the big game, with the chance to purchase additional tickets at a discount!
(Your pledge) X (Field goals the Islanders make) =
As an example, if you pledge $5 for every field goal made by our Islanders against the Bearkats and the Islanders make 30 field goals, your gift will be $150. The more you pledge and the more our team scores, the more money that goes into the endowment!
Last year's event raised more than $16,000 for our men and women in blue. Help us surpass last year's amount by making your pledge today!
*Free tickets and discount are good for the Hoops for Blue Scholars basketball game (Islanders Men's against Sam Houston State University on Saturday, Feb. 11 at 1 p.m.) only. Tickets will be mailed to the address provided in the pledge form. Tickets for pledges received after the end of business day on Friday, Feb. 3 will be held at the Will Call window (ticket office window facing the water) at the American Bank Center and can be picked up one hour prior to the start of the game.
