On November 3rd, 2018, the LVB Weightlifting Team non profit club will hold it's first ever profit share meet. This USAW sanctioned meet - link here- will be open to all ages, and abilities, and will serve as a way of putting money into the pockets of weightlifters who need it. We will have more info in the coming months, but make sure you mark your calendars. This will be one day only meet, and space will be limited. Our goal is to give $5000 back to the top 3 male and top 3 female lifters. REGISTRATION BEGINS SEPTEMBER 1, 2018.
What's a profit share meet?
If a profit share meet wasn't a thing before, then it is now. For our Big Money Meet it means that 100% of the earnings will go back to the weightlifters. For the competitors, 50% of the total earning will go to the top 3 male and top 3 female athletes. The other 50% will go back to our non profit club scholarship fund. Our scholarship fund is how we help our athletes who can't afford training, traveling, and competing.
The 2018 Big Money Meet Fundraiser will be our first ever profit share meet. 50% of the proceeds will go to the top 3 male and top 3 female lifters, and the remaining 50% will go towards the LVB Weightlifting Team 501C3 non profit organization. Each and every dollar from every registration, and every donation, will go back into the pockets of weightlifters who need your help. Sign up to compete in a friendly USAW sanctioned meet, and, at the very least, give back to a good cause.
Why You Should Sign Up
This meet is perfect for all ages and abilities. Even if there is no chance of winning. Your registration goes back into the pockets of weightlifters who need your help.
How We Will Raise Money
Registration will cost $70. When we sell out at 80 athletes that will be $5600. 50% of that will instantly go to the winners, and be divided accordingly. The LVB club will be seeking out corporate sponsors for additional donation. Donations will be collected from spectators. Family and friends will be able to also donate online. We are also working on running 50/50 raffles, auctioning gift baskets, and more. The goal is to raise a total of $10,000 so that each 1st place athlete will receive $1500, each 2nd place athlete will receive $750, and each 3rd place athlete will receive $250.00. Sky's the limit, and we hope that this meet is so successful that it significantly impacts many people in need.
