LAS VEGAS, Nov. 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Fast-growing Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) platform, iTEAM Network, partnered with Las Vegas-area food bank Three Square to help those in need this holiday season.
To reach struggling individuals and families at risk of hunger, iTEAM Network tapped into its rapidly expanding player base and held a "Draft to Help" tournament. The $2 buy-in event raised enough money to purchase 6,000 meals through Three Square.
"iTEAM Network is committed to being a good corporate citizen," said Gabe Hunterton, CEO of iTEAM Network. "I'm very proud of the 6,000 meals that iTEAM Network, our skin partners, and customers were able to provide to those in need."
iTEAM Network joins 1,300 community partners working with Three Square on the fight to end hunger. Three Square's mission is to provide wholesome food to hungry people, while passionately pursuing a hunger-free community. The organization is the most complete food solution for Southern Nevada.
"We are grateful to iTEAM Network for their generous donation this holiday season," said Brian Burton, President and CEO of Three Square. "This gift comes during our holiday match challenge, and will be doubled to provide 12,000 meals back to the community."
Hunterton expects "Draft to Help" to be the first of many service projects for iTEAM Network. The turnkey DFS platform has seen significant growth since it launched in September. Player accounts have more than doubled, while the number of total contest entries tripled. Since launch, total prize pools awarded by iTEAM Network grew by 277%.
