Dallas Mayor, Mustangs team up for three-point shoot out

The SMU Lady Mustangs are teaming up with Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings in order to support the H.O.P.E. Farm of Fort Worth, Texas and the DFW Big Brothers Big Sisters.

The collaboration will be part of an event for the Little Big Shot foundation.

Little Big Shot is a private foundation that specializes in hosting competitive basketball shootouts benefitting charities that support at-risk children.

Tuesday at the Moody Coliseum, Rawlings and the SMU Women’s Basketball team shot three-pointers as part of a shootout.

Their team matched up against Irving Mayor, Beth Van Duyne.

There are four mayors involved in the event: Betsy Price of Fort Worth, Texas, Dr. Robert Cluck of Arlington, Rawlings and Van Duyne.

University of Dallas, Texas Christian University and University of Texas at Arlington are the teams that are matching up with their hometown mayors along with SMU.

The quartet of mayors has pushed for businesses to back up the shootout and to pledge sponsorship of community and corporate teams.

“This is a great platform for local business to engage in a worthy cause. Businesses have the opportunity to support their communities, and most importantly, the youth benefiting from this event,” Rawlings said.

Regardless of who wins, it’s admirable to see mayors and local universities supporting the cause.
