RiverKings continue MVP fundraising for 2016-17 season

SOUTHAVEN, Miss.- The Mississippi RiverKings, the longest continually operating sports franchise in the greater Memphis area, are continuing their MVP Non-Profit program that will enable them to support local community non-profits during the 2016-2017 season. 

The RiverKings MVP program enables them to support a local area non-profit organization at all RiverKings home games. The RiverKings hope to continue their success from last years' inaugural campaign after raising over $15,000 for 22 local non-profits. This year, the RiverKings will host an MVP organization for 24 out of their 28 homes games.

The MVP Non-Profit earns money on both pre sold and box office ticket sales based on the below criteria.

1-99 tickets: $1.50 per ticket presold + $1.50 per ticket scanned = $3.00
100-199 tickets: $2.50 per ticket presold + $2.50 per ticket scanned = $5.00
200+ tickets: $5.00 per ticket presold + $5.00 per ticket scanned = $10.00

In addition to pre selling tickets, organizations will also earn $2.00 for every ticket purchased at the box office by fans requesting their ticket purchase benefiting the MVP. 

MVP organizations are also included in all game night advertising, which includes television, radio, billboard and newspaper, at no cost to the non-profit. 

The application and additional information can be found at riverkings.com/mvpnonprofit. Once the application period is done, the RiverKings organization will choose one MVP non-profit for 24 of their home games giving the organization optimal time to prepare their fundraiser and ticket sales.
