I'm excited to tell you about a new campaign that I am doing to raise money for important work we’re doing for kids at my Foundation: I want to invite one of you to come to New York City for our annual Steve Nash Foundation Showdown soccer match, and play in the game with me, and my NBA and professional soccer friends. This will be our 7th Showdown in NYC, and I know you’ll love it as much as I do — great guys playing the beautiful game in a pretty unique setting.
Sound good? In exchange, I would love to ask for your support for my Foundation’s efforts to help underserved children get the best possible start in life and learning. For a small donation, starting at $10, you will be entered to win! The prize will include roundtrip airfare and 2 nights at the SIXTY LES Hotel for you and a guest.
Wait, there’s more, you say? Yup. You will have access to the exclusive Showdown Players’ Lounge, where we get together to pick teams, get our kits, and get to know each other before kick-off, travel with us to the field, and warm-up with us before Showdown starts. We will also give you an official Showdown uniform and gift bag, a VIP access credential signed by me, and 2 souvenir Showdown t-shirts — your guest will have a great seat for the action, too.
If you choose to donate more (you'll get more entries if you do!), I've put together some cool rewards for you, too. You can see them below!
We don’t announce our rosters ahead of time, but our past rosters have included Baron Davis, Massimo Ambrosini, Jeremy Lin, Thierry Henry, Tony Parker and Maurice Edu, just to name a few – these guys are as competitive as they are kind (and funny), and you’ll have a blast with us.
Thank you so much for your support — I look forward to meeting one of you!
The Steve Nash Foundation is dedicated to assisting underserved children in their health, personal development, education and enjoyment of life. Our goal is to increase access to critical needs health and education resources for children affected by poverty, illness, abuse or neglect. I want to ensure that all kids get the attention they deserve.
Though our own platforms - ICARE, Educare, BC Grants, and Support Hope – we work to build strength in communities by growing health in kids.
The Steve Nash Foundation Showdown NYC ’14 benefits the Steve Nash Foundation’s early childhood platform, Educare. Educare is built on the idea that children matter, and provides highest-quality early learning programs, healthcare, and parent resources to at-risk children and families to not only change trajectories, but the paradigm of the first five years of life and learning.
Together we can help underserved children get the help they need to thrive. By helping us grow health in kids, you’re making a great assist.
Thank you for your support!
