New Interactive Sports App to Benefit Nick Pasquale Foundation
FireFan, a new interactive sports gaming app, has partnered with the San Clemente-based Nick Pasquale Foundation for a unique fundraising opportunity.
FireFan is a free app that allows users to predict minute-by-minute scenarios in professional sports games. Once registered, users can join leagues with family, friends or the public, and wager points on the outcome of a drive during a football game, or the final score.
Robert Chavez, a Capistrano Beach resident, represents the non-profit arm of FireFan’s developer, United Games, and instantly thought of the Nick Pasquale Foundation when searching for local nonprofits to partner with.
After downloading the app, users can type in the promotional code “LiveLikeNick,” to ensure the Nick Pasquale Foundation receives recognition. Users that use the promo code are given 18 free tokens, which Chavez said are enough to last three full NFL football games on the app. A portion of the app’s ad revenues will go toward the Nick Pasquale Foundation.
The Nick Pasquale Foundation benefits local student-athletes through scholarships and donations to local sports organizations.
