Help Coach Cuonzo raise $100,000 for The First Tee

University of Tennessee Men’s Basketball Coach Cuonzo Martin is participating in the 2014 Infiniti Coaches’ Charity Challenge.
Coach Martin is competing against 47 other basketball coaches to win up to $100,000 for his local charity of choice, The First Tee of Greater Knoxville.

The first round of the competition began Monday, January 6 and will end on January 26. There are four rounds of voting during the competition. During this time, Volunteer fans can visit or grab the link and vote for Coach Martin every day.
Voters are limited to one vote per day.

Voting is a simple way to support Coach Martin and The First Tee of Greater Knoxville.
Winning $100,000 would allow The First Tee of Greater Knoxville to serve many more children in East Tennessee, teaching them the game of golf and the core values that are inherently learned through the game.

The voting schedule is as follows:
Round 1: January 6 – January 26
Round 2: January 27 – February 16
Round 3: February 17 – March 2
Round 4: March 3 – March 16

The winning coach will be announced on March 16, and his charity of choice will receive a grand prize of $100,000. All participating charities will receive at least $1,000 for being in the first round.
