Introducing the Locker Room Access NBA 2K Tournament to benefit UVA hourly employees impacted by COVID19 brought to you by Conor Murray – Realtor for Frank Hardy Sotheby’s International Realty and GOAT app. As you know, with the cancellation of events, many hourly employees were left without pay and insurance. We are building a 2k tournament to help promote Social Distancing and the needs of those employees who lost wages. We know this pandemic has impacted millions around the globe and we know we can’t help everyone. But we can make a difference in our community. They supported us over the years and we want to do something to support them. Every dollar helps, donate in some way. You don’t have to donate here. Just find a way. There are gofundme pages and other avenues, if you prefer those.
How does it work?
Former UVA athletes and influencers will participate in the tournament with spots being auctioned off and raffled off for a chance to play in the tournament with your favorite UVA athletes. All the proceeds will be donated to the hourly workers in need. If you are interested in participating against one of these UVA legends please click here to bid in an auction that guarantees entry or click here to participate in a $1.00 raffle (no limit on the number of entries).
