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.

Thank you notes and receipts have been sent out to everyone who has made a donation as of this morning. Thank you again to everyone for your generosity. Sorry for the delay in getting these out, but I ran into some technical difficulties which hopefully have now all been solved.

You may have noticed that our campaign now says "on behalf of Mary Fuoto." For those who aren't familiar with our team, Mary is the president of the Hawktimus Prime Robotics Booster Club. By making this addition, all donations will go directly into the team's account which makes the process safer and provides the team with quicker access to the funds. I am delighted that we were able to get this set up.

Just added a short video showing the Hawktimus Prime robot in action. Video is of Final match 1 from the FIRST North Carolina State Championship 2017. Hawktimus Prime is on the red alliance with our fantastic partners -- the Zebracorns #900 and alliance captain, the Terrorbytes #4561. In robotics competitions, things often do not go as planned, but this alliance adapted well. When the Zebracorn's ball shooter unexpectedly failed, the alliance came up with a brilliant strategy to overcome the problem. The new plan added defense to the mix, and the teams executed it perfectly!
