YSU, Burgan Partner for Mortgage Mania Challenge

October 5, 2018

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Burgan Real Estate will host its Better with Burgan Mortgage Mania Challenge, giving participants a chance to win $12,000, at five Youngstown State University basketball games this season.

Fans can enter at BetterWithBurgan.com to win two tickets to one of the participating games. Those selected for each game will have to make three different shots: a layup, three point shot and half-court shot all under 30 seconds.

“As last year showed us, there aren’t too many moments in sports more exciting than watching someone make a half-court shot,” said co-owner Patrick Burgan in a release. “With our partnership with YSU Athletics, we found a way to make this promotion better this year and add more excitement for everyone involved. We hope this promotion will be nothing but net.”

Last year, Bill Cupler of Berlin Center hit a shot on his second attempt, winning $12,000.

“College athletics is about history, tradition and excitement,” said Ron Strollo, YSU’s executive director of athletics.  “As YSU continues its partnership with Burgan Real Estate, we look to build on both the tradition and excitement of the various fan experiences Burgan provides to Penguin fans at our events.”

This year’s eligible games are Jan. 19 against Northern Kentucky, Jan. 26 against Cleveland State, Feb. 2 versus Detroit Mercy, Feb. 16 versus University of Illinois- Chicago and March 2 against Cleveland State.

Entries, accepted through Feb. 17 are limited to one per person over the course of the sweepstakes. Multiple entries does not increase the odds of being chosen. All entrants must be at least 21 years old and live within 45 miles of Youngstown. Complete contest rules are available at BetterWithBurgan.com.
