Fans who pledge $0.10 per assist or donate $30 will get their name listed on the Memphis Grizzlies scoreboard during their April 5 game.

Pledge $0.50 per assist or donate $150 and earn a chance to be one of 20 winners of a St. Jude lapel pin.

If you pledge $1 per assist or donate $300, you'll have a chance to win a basketball signed by the Grizzlies.

Fans who pledge $5 per assist or donate $1,500 will earn the chance to win a Grizzlies practice court experience for up to 15 people.

All contributions will go towards St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
