RE/MAX of New England and the Celtics to award three lucky families witha “Home Court” renovation and bedroom makeover
BOSTON (February 1, 2011) – The Boston Celtics and RE/MAX of New England have announced the launch of the 2011 RE/MAX of New England Home Court Program. Now in its sixth year, the Home Court Program awards three deserving Celtics fans home court advantage with a driveway renovation featuring a new home basketball court, and a Celtics-themed bedroom makeover. Additionally, a Boston Celtics player and legend will visit each winner’s home for a dedication ceremony followed by a community basketball clinic in the winner’s home town.
Fans can enter the RE/MAX Home Court contest by logging onto www.celtics.com and submitting a 500-word essay along with photos explaining why they need a “home court makeover.” Three winners will be chosen based on their essay to receive a home court makeover featuring a driveway or court resealing, a brand new basket stanchion, backboard, electronic scoreboard, a ball rack, and other Celtics-themed items. Each winner will also receive a special visit from a Boston Celtics player and legend to their home for a dedication ceremony and a youth basketball clinic with other children in the community.
“The RE/MAX Home Court Program is one of our most successful and impactful community initiatives and we look forward to working with RE/MAX of New England to award three more lucky fans with a new home basketball court this year,” Celtics President Rich Gotham said. “RE/MAX has been a great partner of the team and each year we get more and more fans submitting entries to this tremendous program.”
A special selection committee consisting of local media members, RE/MAX employees, and Celtics staff will determine the winner of the contests in each state. Entry forms are available online at www.celtics.com. Deadline for entrees is May 15, 2011.
“Every year I really enjoy meeting the winning families and I am looking forward to taking part in this year’s RE/MAX Home Court Program,” RE/MAX of New England Executive Vice President Jay Hummer said. “We’ve partnered with the Celtics for the Home Court program for six years now and it always makes me proud to be able to provide families with the court, room renovation and community clinic from a Celtics player.”
