Support Rice Athletics in the Bayou Bucket Challenge
This year is the inaugural Bayou Bucket Giving Challenge between the Rice Owl Club and the UH Cougar Pride. Give from September 5th to September 11th and prove that we have the most philanthropic fans in Houston! The school with the most gifts after the week-long challenge will be declared the winner after the Bayou Bucket on September 11th.

All gifts for the Bayou Bucket challenge will go to the Rice Athletics Scholarship Fund. Gifts must be a minimum of $20 to count towards the giving challenge. Share your support by using the hashtag #bayoubucketgiving on social media.

This is both a participation challenge.

Here's the link for gift-giving:

https://riceconnect.rice.edu/donation/at...you-bucket

I'll bump this thread next week when the challenge begins.

RE: Support Rice Athletics in the Bayou Bucket Challenge
The challenge kicks off today. Here's the e-mail sent out this morning to all Owl Club members...

Quote:We are excited to announce the inaugural year of the Bayou Bucket Giving Challenge! While Rice and the University of Houston compete on the field, you, as fans and supporters will have the chance to compete as well. During the week of September 5th - 11th the Rice Owl Club and the Cougar Pride will call on their donors to show who has the most philanthropic fans in Houston.

By making a gift of at least $20 to the Rice Athletics Scholarship Fund you will support student-athletes across all 16 of our sports and have your gift count toward the Bayou Bucket Giving Challenge. The school with the most gifts after the week-long challenge will be declared the winner after the Bayou Bucket on September 11th.

Rice Athletics will also be collecting non-perishable food items for the Houston Food Bank at donation bins in the lobby of Tudor Fieldhouse, the visitors entrance of Fondren Library during the week, and at the gates of the Bayou Bucket Classic football game on September 11th.

Go Owls!

Here's the link to make a gift:

Thanks for those that have already given and provided updates.

Note-- this is a participation challenge, so to help beat the Coogs you need only gift the $20 minimum.

Here's a video from JK on the challenge...

RE: Support Rice Athletics in the Bayou Bucket Challenge
Today is the last day to make a gift of $20 or more to the Rice Athletics Scholarship Fund to show that Rice has the most philanthropic fans in Houston!

As of publication time this morning, UH was slightly ahead of Rice, 67-64.

Did UH really not get a donation yesterday? They were at 67 when I commented on Thursday that we trailed by 25. I can't find any comparable tracker on their websites or social media, but I did discover that their own SID doesn't know that "CougarPride.com" belongs to an artist selling Washington State bronze statues and not the UH equivalent of the Owl Club.

I don't think this page is dynamic. I think somebody is coming in and hardcoding what it displays.
