FINAL UPDATE: Thank You for All of Your Support!

April 17, 2019

UCLA Quidditch is home from US Quidditch Cup 12, and while we didn't win the tournament, we had a great time in Texas representing our school and our region.

 

We beat 3 of the top 10 teams in the nation, including Kansas, one of the favorites to win the championship. We went 5-1 with our star seeker Elizabeth Ng catching the snitch every game. Unfortunately, our last catch sent us into overtime in the Sweet 16 where we fell to NYU, who would eventually go on to the Final Four.

 

It was a hard fought match and we are proud of what we accomplished this weekend and want to congratulate our fellow UC Cal Quidditch on taking home 2nd place this weekend.

 

Thank you to all of our friends, family, and supporters for helping us get to the national stage this season and appreciate your continued support next season!

WE DID IT! + See Our Stretch Goal

April 09, 2019

Friends, family, and all supporters UCLA Quidditch:

 

We did it! Thanks to all of your generous contributions and hard work to spread our campaign, UCLA Quidditch has been able to raise $5,000 to cover the costs of all our flights to nationals this year! We could not have done this without each and every one of you and we are so grateful for your help.

 

We still have three days left, so here's what we've done:

UCLA Quidditch has established a stretch goal of $6,250 - what does this cover?

 

The additional $1,250 we are now trying to raise will cover the costs of rental cars and gas, which means all forms of transportation, both ground and air, will be covered if we hit this next goal. Round Rock, which is where the tournament is being held, is about 20 miles from the airport, meaning it is vital for us to have this ground transportation.

 

How do I know my donation is being used efficiently?

Our team has been using every way possible to reduce costs and save money, from AAA discounts to packing lightly which allows us to choose smaller (and cheaper!) rental cars. No penny donated is going to waste, and any amount fundraised over our stretch goal will then go towards the costs of our housing in Round Rock.

 

All we ask of you now is to share our campaign to help us reach this stretch goal.

 

Thank you all again for helping us get to this point, and we hope you will continue to share our campaign with your friends and family.

One Week Til Take Off!

April 05, 2019

Thanks to the support of our wonderful friends and family, we've managed to reach 35% of our goal! That's 7 players we can send to Nationals!

 

Be sure to keep spreading the word to help us get closer to kicking butt at nationals! Let's try to hit 50% this weekend!

The First 24 Hours: We are off to a great start!

April 02, 2019

Leave April Fools in the past because this is no joke: we've raised over $750 in the first day of our fundraiser! That's 15% of our goal!

 

Thank you to everyone who has contributed so far and to our players for working so hard in these first 24 hours to spread our campaign to you all. So far, your donations are helping us cover the flight costs of 3 of our 19 players - we cannot thank you enough for doing this!

 

There are 11 days left until nationals and we want to keep this momentum going! How can you continue to show your support? Help us further by sharing our fundraising campaign with your social circles!

 

We are so grateful for the generosity that each and every one of you have shown us in the first day and we hope that we can make you proud by reaching our fundraising goal.
