PLANO, Texas, Sept. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- On Aug. 3, WorldVentures announced its partnership with linebacker Sean Lee and the Dreambuilders Foundation as the presenting sponsor and a corporate sponsor on the "Sacks for Kids" campaign to benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Collin County.
Fans Pledge. We Perform. Kids Win.
Beginning July 28 through the 2016-2017 National Football League season, fans may pledge any dollar amount per any sack the Dallas Cowboys defense has. At the end of each game, pledges turn into actual monetary donations that directly benefit the clubs and their programs. 100 percent of the funds raised will be paid out to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Collin County. Anyone can pledge at any time during the regular season.
Donors who pledge $50 or more per sack by September 10 will be invited as special guests of Sean Lee at his Stars and Steaks dinner to be held October 10 at III Forks restaurant.
To pledge, visit http://www.bgccc.org/sacks/. And join the conversation on Facebook and Twitter by following #SeanLee and #SacksForKids.
Updates about the amount of funds raised will be announced each week through emails and social media postings. Updates will also be announced during Keith Russell's weekly one-on-one with Lee on CBS 11.
Lee was the recent recipient of the Ed Block Courage Award presented by United Healthcare at the annual Dallas Cowboys Kickoff luncheon on Aug. 31 at AT&T Stadium. He was voted by his teammates for his ability to return from a 2014 ACL injury and make the Pro Bowl last season.
"I'm proud to support the Boys & Girls Clubs of Collin County," says Lee. "Helping to raise money for the club through each sack we have this season is a great way to support the programs they have for kids, and I hope Cowboys fans everywhere will join me in this campaign."
In the past, Sean Lee's Dreambuilders program has provided the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas and Fort Worth with $50,000 in technology and equipment upgrades. This includes the purchase of literacy software, as well as e-readers for children to use in the clubs.
