BOSTON (February 14, 2006) - The Boston Celtics and RE/MAX of New England today announced the launch of a community-based initiative entitled the "RE/MAX of New England Home Court Program." The RE/MAX of New England Home Court Program will renovate the home basketball courts of three lucky fans with a Celtics theme. As part of the contest the Celtics and RE/MAX of New England will also host a free basketball clinic in the community of each winner. Both the makeover and clinic will feature a member of the Celtics team.
The Celtics and RE/MAX of New England will hold three separate contests, taking fan submissions consisting of a 500-word essay along with photos explaining why they need a "Home Court Makeover". Three lucky fans will be chosen to get their home basketball courts made over, starting with a driveway or court resealing, a brand new basket stanchion, backboard, electronic scoreboard, a ball rack and other Celtics-themed adornments. In addition to the hoop makeover, the Celtics will conduct a youth basketball clinic to be held in the community of each winner after completion of the renovations.
"The RE/MAX Homecourt Program provides a great opportunity for the Celtics and our players to interact with fans in the communities they live in."said Rich Gotham, the Celtics Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "We are proud to partner with RE/MAX in this unique community program."
Winners of each contest will be determined in three different ways. Celtics players and coaches will select the first winner; an online fan poll will decide the second winner; and a special selection committee featuring local media members will name the final winner.
"RE/MAX of New England is proud to partner with the Boston Celtics on a great community initiative," Chuck Lemire, RE/MAX of New England Executive Vice President and Regional Director explained. "This unique program solidifies RE/MAX of New England and the Celtics commitment to developing a unique and creative project that truly benefits our communities."
