We as fans have been patient with this rebuild to get to this point. Hayward and Gobert are the core of what could be a great team in coming years. Let's show Gordon how much he means to this city and fan base.
There is a billboard between the practice facility and the Vivint Smart Home Arena that we can rent for the entire month of May, which is perfect as the season will be winding down and free agency will be close to starting. I've been in contact with Yesco because this is a perfect location and time frame, but it is on a first come, first serve basis, so we need to act fast.
If 1/3 of the fans who attend a single game donate one dollar, we'd hit our goal. We can do this Jazz fans, let's do what we can to keep Hayward in Utah.
Find us on Facebook linked below or on twitter @utahjazz6man and remember to use #stayward on any posts.
If the goal is not met with a reasonable amount of time to carry out the plan, you will be refunded.
Update: Any funds raised over the cost of renting a billboard for one month will be donated to the campaign Gordon Hayward shared this morning which belongs to his friend, Erik Romm, on his quest to raise 100k for cancer research. Rest assured no one will profit a dollar from this.
There have been several marketing agencies that have reached out to us and offered to help us make our money go as far as possible. I'm currently in the process of deciding which one is going to help us the most, and make this as cool as possible.
Over the next couple of weeks, we will get everything done to get our billboard(s) up.
I will post more updates as they come in. I'm excited to continue to work with all of you to help show everyone how passionate we are about our team.
Now let's enjoy these playoffs!

A couple of things:
Every dollar donated from here on out will be donated to the campaign that Gordon Hayward tweeted out, which is raising money for cancer research.
I'm now moving forward with getting this billboard up. I'm waiting to hear from the right people regarding some red tape, copyright issues. I will keep you updated as I receive information.
Thank you all, it's really crazy how fast this has taken off.
Garrett, my company would like to donate money to the cancer research fund that Hayward recommended. I'd like to see if we could connect on helping out with the Stayward campaign as well. I just sent you an email through GoFundMe, so please reply to me through there. - Brian
