Giving back to the community is very important to Action 24/7 and @TNRookieBookie Tina Hodges.
Action 24/7 launched in 2019 with the simple idea of creating a world-class sportsbook for the people of Tennessee. Hodges, @TNRookieBookie, is the only licensed woman bookie in Tennessee and possibly the United States. Created by Tennesseans for Tennesseans and headquartered in Nashville, Action 24/7 is the only locally owned and operated sportsbook in Tennessee.
In January, Action 24/7 will start its Action 100 program to honor Tennesseans taking action across the Volunteer State. Anyone who wishes to submit a nomination can go to action247.com/action100 and nominate someone they know who was great at making a difference in our Tennessee communities. Twice a month, Action 24/7 will randomly select an honoree and donate $100 to the charity of choice of the winning honoree. The donations will continue for all of 2021. It's just a small way to recognize those that are taking action to make communities better.
Sports gambling became legal in Tennessee by passage of the Sports Gaming Act in 2019 and is regulated by the Tennessee Education Lottery board. Since 2003, the Tennessee Education Lottery Corp. raised more than $5 billion for education scholarships and programs across the state. The Sports Gaming Act requires 80% of the privilege tax paid by its licensed operators to also go toward the lottery education scholarship fund. That’s not enough, according to Hodges.
“Education scholarships are much needed in Tennessee, and we are glad that is how the majority of our privilege tax dollars will be spent,” Hodges said. “We also want to honor those making a hands-on impact in our communities. There are unsung heroes in all 95 counties. We hope to hear about them all and to honor them by giving $100 to their favorite organization.”
The Action 100 campaign will launch Jan. 1 with twice-monthly awards starting the week of Jan. 10.
