The Colony residents get buckets for trip

February 24, 2017 by  

Those in The Colony and its surrounding areas are practicing their follow through and fade away to get ready for the 2017 Hot Shot Challenge. Sponsored by the Nebraska Furniture Mart and LG, the event offers fun and prizes.

The event centers on arcade-style basketball games, which recreates a miniature version of a free throw for competitors. Every basket made adds points to the board, but only so many misses are allowed. Every visitor who wishes to test their skill will have only one chance at the game, so they need to make every shot count.

At the end of the day, the points will be tallied and winners will be declared. The top scorer will receive a 60-inch flat screen TV, with the next few players getting promotional products including gift cards to the Nebraska Furniture Mart. The challenge will be played out in all five furniture mart locations, and the top scorers from each location will then be entered into a drawing for the chance to win tickets for two to an NCAA Final Four game during March Madness.

The Hot Shot Challenge will be held on March 4 from 12:00 to 3:00 pm at the Nebraska Furniture Mart, located at 5600 Nebraska Furniture Mart Dr. Participation in the challenge is free. Anyone looking for more info should visit the website.
