Spring  2017 Spirit Week

The More Good You Do, The Better Your Chance To Be Surprised & Delighted

The Cause

1 Chalice = 5 Years of Clean Water

In 2015, Stella Artois and water.org formed the very first philanthropic partnership of its kind; Buy a Lady a Drink - a social impact campaign launched by Matt Damon and Gary White. Today, 663 million people live without access to clean water and over the last two years, Stella Artois has helped provide more than 800,000 people in the developing world access to clean water for 5 years. People cannot live without clean water. It is the source of our everyday lives. All around the globe, women spend 200 million hours a day trekking strenuous miles in exhaustive conditions collecting water for their families.

WE want to take those long, grueling journeys away from the intelligent, earnest women and give them time back to create new, prosperous, astonishing journeys. With the purchase of one signature Stella Artois Chalice, you too can help provide 5 years of clean drinking water to one single person and give women hope and a future. Join a great cause, for a great purpose. A win-win for all involved.

Although every chalice does incredible good, remember only chalices purchased through Commi.sh are eligible for Spirit Week.

Be Rewarded For Doing Good

You Have 2 Ways To Win

DC Fray has partnered with Stella and Water.org to make chalices available for purchase as part of our Spring 2017 Spirit Week.

The Ones With The Most Chalices...Wins
The team who purchases the most chalices will win our "Buy a Lady a Drink" Challenge and win a full on Stella Surprise & Delight! We can't tell you what you'll win, but trust us, you want to win. The math is simple - the team with the highest number of chalices bought divided by the number of roster players wins. Bocce teams have just as much of a shot to win as kickball teams. Also, every Chalice comes with a free Stella at pickup, first come first serve!

Show Us What You Got...on Instagram
Post Your Team Photos to Instagram and include the hashtags #DCFray & #BuyALadyADrink.
DC Fray Staff will select a 1st & 2nd Place "Critics Choice" winner from all teams who submit a photo of their Spirit Week garb; anything water related goes! First prize grabs a Keg of Stella at your sponsor bar. Second place gets a $75 bar tab for your sponsor bar. Show us what you got. Photos will be accepted until midnight Monday, May 8th. Remember to include your team name & make sure it's sent from an account that's public!

Spirit Week Information & Rules

There is no limit to the number of chalices that you may purchase and every chalice purchased counts for EVERY team that you're playing for.  

How the Scoring System Works

If a Kickball team with a roster size of 20 purchases 35 chalices, their score is 1.75 (35 divided by 20).
If a Cornhole team with a roster size of 6 purchases 18 chalices, their score is 3 (18 divided by 6).
3 > 1.75, meaning Cornhole wins.  Hooray math.
DC Fray will post the top teams Monday, May 1st through Friday May 5th on Facebook, Twitter and especially Instagram. Giddy up and get on your #NeverStopPlaying social media game.
Chalices can be picked up:
Sunday, May 7th. 1-3pm at The Exchange
Tuesday, May 9th. 6-8pm at The Exchange
Thursday, May 11th. 6-8pm at The Exchange
Chalices picked up at the Exchange come with a FREE STELLA. First come first serve y'all.
Beginning Monday, May 8th, at the DC Fray office (come have a beer and play skeeball with us!) between 10 and 6, Monday through Friday. We're at 951 V Street, NE Washington DC, 20018.
Yes, you can pick up chalices for your teammates. And yes, you will have to legibly sign for them.
We'll announce the winning team Monday, May 8th. Remember, you don't want to miss this once in a lifetime Stella Surprise & Delight.
