Rgv Vipers and Academy Sports & Outdoors Hold Curbside Surprise
EDINBURG, Texas - The Rio Grande Valley Vipers and Academy Sports & Outdoors partnered to surprised five kids from the Rio Grande Valley on Wednesday, December 16 at Bert Ogden Arena.
Each child received a $500 gift card to go on a shopping spree for the holidays. Winners were selected amongst a pool of candidates via submissions entered through the RGV Vipers website. The President and Vice President of the Vipers organization selected the winners based on their academic performances and community involvement.
"After receiving many great submissions from the people in the RGV, it was a difficult decision to choose just five winners," said Hondo Candelaria, Vice President of the Vipers. "We pride ourselves in giving back to the community and we can't thank our partners Academy Sports & Outdoors for joining in helping to give back."
Once the gift cards were picked up by the winners, they were able to online shop and pick-up their items on Thursday, December 17 via curbside at the Academy Sports & Outdoors in Edinburg.
