CCYM teams up with OKC Thunder

1/6/2012

Basketball fundraiser will support youth missions

The Youth Service Fund (YSF) will score big when Thunder basketball fans purchase tickets to specific NBA games in Oklahoma City this season.

Oklahoma Conference’s Youth Ministries have teamed up to raise funds through the Thunder Group Experience. The three games are:

  • vs. Detroit Pistons, Jan. 23;
  • vs. New Orleans Hornets, Jan. 25;
  • and vs. Houston Rockets, March 13.

Using the offer code "UMC" when ordering a special ticket generates a donation to YSF.

Because of the shortened NBA season, supporters are urged to quickly take advantage of the group pricing, said Cole Douglas, a Thunder representative. Sellouts are likely in advance of game day. Tickets are priced at three levels.

Through YSF, Oklahoma’s United Methodist Youth raise money and donate it to ministry and mission projects they choose to support. CCYM (the Conference Council on Youth Ministries) awards the grants annually.

Two-thirds of each dollar goes to children/youth projects in the Conference, and one-third to those beyond the state.

Diana Northcutt is Conference Youth coordinator.
