Vote Yes to Proposition 4

Passage would be Win/Win for Fans and Charities

Proposition 4, a constitutional amendment otherwise known as Sports Charity Proposition, would allow professional sports franchises across the state to conduct charitable raffles at every home game – rather than twice per year that is permitted under current law. 

Fans would have the ability to purchase a raffle ticket and then split the cash prize with Silver & Black Give Back.   Professional sports franchises in 24 other states have long held 50-50 raffles with great success.  No taxpayer dollars would be associated with the initiative, and monies raised by the raffle would only be used for charitable giving. 
The campaign for passage of Proposition 4 is a collaborative effort between ten professional sports teams including the San Antonio Spurs, Texas Rangers, Houston Astros, Houston Rockets, Dallas Stars, Dallas Mavericks, Dallas Cowboys, Houston Dynamo, Houston Texans and FC Dallas, who are all working to bring this winning experience to Texas’ biggest sports fans and communities.  Listen to this message from Nolan Ryan to learn more and click here to see the Spurs Update on Proposition 4.
Early voting began October 19 and runs through October 30.  Election Day is Tuesday, November 3rd.

Make sure you head to the polls and vote yes to Proposition 4!  Our students can score big with your help at the ballot box.
