Boston Crusaders have challenged The Cavaliers to a competition during the DCI Giving Challenge! 

Here are the details:

The corps with the most donors

- a $250 gift certificate will be given in a random drawing (from among all donors to the corps who wins this goal) for merchandise from the winning corps - paid for by the losing corps!

The corps with the most donors of $100 or more

- all these donors are in a drawing to receive access for two people to the 50-yard line luxury suite next to the judges booth at Lucas Oil Stadium for either Thursday, Friday, or Saturday of Finals week.

The corps with the most money raised

- the winning corps will be fed dinner by the losing corps one day next year when both corps are in the same show (gives our instructors time to realize they might have to give up a couple hours of rehearsal time one day!). The losing corps will come over for socializing during that meal and eat together. 

And finally,

The losing Executive Director will make a short video clip, and will post it on their Facebook page, while wearing the winning corps' hat/shirt and encouraging auditionees to strongly consider the winning corps as a second consideration if Boston Crusaders (or The Cavaliers) aren't their first choice. Could be fun and might go viral.

Now we really need to rock the DCI Giving Challenge. Please help as best you can. Thank you and let's #CrushTheCrusaders!
