Raising Hoops (and Funds) for Kids

VinsSJSA.jpgHere it is - my official blogging debut.  As the newest member of the Lifetime365 blog team, I'm looking forward to sharing some of my personal experiences and basketball product expertise with you.

'Tis the Giving Season!  And, if you're a regular reader of this blog, you already know that giving back is one of the things that is extremely important to Lifetime.  So, needless to say, I was excited to recently have the opportunity to participate in giving back on behalf of Lifetime at the South Jeffco Sports Association (SJSA)  Holiday Tournament in Lakewood, Colorado. SJSA is a nonprofit youth sports organization offering playing opportunities in various sports  to kids age 4-17.

The Holiday Tournament event was held at the Gold Crown Field House in Lakewood. The three-day tournament included boys and girls in grades 3-8.  It was very intense. To be a part of watching kids compete and show their teamwork was great to see. (And, a little humbling seeing some of their skills surpass  my abilities!)

As part of the event, Lifetime had a small booth where we raffled off a Lifetime Portable Basketball System.  Through our raffle, we were able to raise $210 for SJSA.  (And, of course, award one lucky winner with a new Lifetime Basketball Hoop!)SJSA2.jpg

We had a number of parents at our booth asking  us about all the different Lifetime Basketball Systems we make. It was awesome to be able to interact with the parents and chat with them about the different models we offer for the different age groups and skill levels competing.  Even though all of our portable basketball systems adjust in height, models are designed specifically to be ideal for beginners, intermediate, or advanced players depending on the features offered on the system such as size and type of backboards.  Educating our consumers about which hoop is best for them is important to Lifetime.

We are excited to partner with SJSA and look forward to continuing to work with these young kids in the future. To be able give back to the children was an amazing experience. 

By the way, since I'm talking about basketball and giving, it's seems fitting that I remind you that we are still giving away basketball hoops in our 25 Hoops for 25 Years giveaway!  We have just a few more hoops to giveaway before the end of 2011.  So, if you haven't already entered - hurry and click here!

Table Clips for Lifetime Tables - Two Packs for the Price of One!
Out of the blue, two people have mentioned table clips to me in the past few weeks. It's not exactly a popular conversation topic or product, so I'm taking that as a sign that I should blog about them! Wanna hear something else weird...both people were named Nancy. Good thing I'm not superstitious. :) My aunt Nancy was telling me how her friend was looking for table clips to fit her Lifetime table to hold her material in place for quilting. Hmmm...clever idea for you quilter's out there, huh?! And, one of our blog readers, said she was looking for table clips to fit her Lifetime tables that she uses in her restaurant with skirting on them. Just so you know, the edges of most Lifetime banquet tables are thicker than traditional wooden folding banquet tables, which makes it a little harder to find clips that fit properly. But...

Will Luck O' the Irish Help You Win A Lifetime Raised Garden Bed?
This giveaway has ended. Tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day. And, as you know, tradition is to wear green. But, rather than wear green, we thought it would be more fun to give something green instead. Our Facebook fans had some really great green guesses yesterdayincluding some we didn't even think of! Money, green kayaks, and Earthtone playsets were all great guesses. However, we were thinking something along the less traditional green lines like a Lifetime Raised Garden Bed! Ok, so maybe it's not actually green in color. (Although there is a little green on the cover. Does that count?)But, you can fill a Lifetime Raised Garden Bed with lots of beautiful green vegetables and it can help you live a more "green" lifestyle. Ok, ok, kind of a stretch, we admit. But are you complaining? It's still a free giveaway! And, after all, th...
