Help Send Team 3229 to Championship

Hawktimus Prime, #3229, is a FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) team of high school students from Holly Springs, North Carolina. The team, which is having its best year ever, recently won its first North Carolina State District Championship! With this exciting and unexpected victory, however, comes the challenge of finding enough funding, in less than two weeks, to send the team to Houston, Texas, to compete in the 2017 FIRST World Championship. Please help us raise enough money to send our 54 team members, teacher sponsor, and mentors to this event of a lifetime.

The Hawktimus Prime Robotics Booster Club is seeking donations to offset the costs for travel, hotels, and meals, so that all the students who have worked so hard to make this team successful may attend the World Championship competition. Since the event takes place April 19th through 22nd, timely donations are appreciated. Donations made after this date, however, will still be graciously accepted. Furthermore, any funding received that goes beyond what this trip requires will go toward continuing this winning tradition by supporting next year's team.

Active since 2010, Hawktimus Prime is a student-led group which receives no school funding. Indeed, all the team's support comes from students, parents, family, friends and corporate sponsors. The Hawktimus Prime Booster Club is an approved 501(c)(3) non-profit organization (EIN: 81-0774703), and contributions are tax-deductible. Thanks for your interest in and generous support of Team #3229, Hawktimus Prime.
