Stephen Wade, Goldenwest, Canyon Media Team Up to Donate a Total of $3,500 to Washington County Schools Through "Shoot4Cash" Events

Stephen Wade Auto Center, Goldenwest Credit Union and Canyon Media recently awarded checks to local Washington County high schools for participating in their annual Shoot4Cash events.

The Shoot4Cash events were designed to award money to local high school clubs, teams and organizations. The event allows three students who represent their organization to “shoot for cash” during a halftime show at each of the five local high schools.

The student has 30 seconds to make a layup, free throw and three-point shot, then a half-court shot worth $500. The four shots are progressive for a total of $500. The layup is worth $50, the free throw $100, the three-point shot $250 and the half-court shot $500.

During this basketball season, two students earned $500 by sinking the half-court shot. Crimson Cliffs High School student Noah Nelson sunk the half-court shot, earning the swim team $500. Desert Hills High School student Jaxon Resendez also hit a half-court shot to earn the boys’ soccer team $500. This year, a total of $3,500 was awarded to local schools.

“I look forward to basketball season each year because of the Shoot4Cash events that allow me to build relationships with students, advisors and administrators,” said Jamie Bahlmann, public relations director for Stephen Wade Auto Center. “The sole purpose of these events are to give back to the schools and teams that don’t always get large donations.”

There were 68 organizations that participated, with 15 clubs receiving money from the Shoot4Cash events. The clubs can participate by commenting the name of their club, team or organization on a post on each high school’s Instagram account for the chance to earn cash. There were over 12,000 comments by students who represented various organizations.

Over the past six years, $30,000 has been donated to local high schools through the Shoot4Cash events alone. That doesn’t include the amount donated during football season with the Kick4Cash events.

Stephen Wade Auto Center is Southern Utah’s auto mall, with the largest selection of new and used vehicles in the area. Goldenwest Credit Union is a not-for-profit cooperative and owned by its 150,000 members. Canyon Media provides creative and effective marketing, advertising and promotion-based strategies for local and regional businesses.

Together, these companies have partnered to provide an opportunity to give back to local high schools by creating and administering the Shoot4Cash and Kick4Cash events each year.
