Sacramento pastor who hit half Ct shot to raffle car for charity

The Sacramento pastor who won a car latest week by hitting a half Ct brief announced plans Tuesday to raffle the car to lift more money for local causes.

During the April five Sacramento Kings game, senior pastor Joseph Sissac did the improbable. He sank the 47-foot half Ct shot, becoming the first — and only — person to do so in forty-first residence games this season, the team said. It was the latest successful half Ct attempt at Sleep Train Arena.

The prize was a new car from Folsom Lake Ford. But when he and his wife arrived at the dealership, the couple had second thoughts.

“We are donating the car. We wish to raffle the car off to lift funds,” Sissac, forty, told reporters and supporters at a midday Tuesday press conference. “We wish to get another shot and utilize this vehicle to assistance modify lives of people in our community.”

Sissac won a $15.000 Ford Fiesta, but said he plans to add roughly $2.000 to the prize, which will authorize him to raffle a Ford Focus instead.

Tickets to win the Focus will be sold for $10. The money will split between the Middle of Praise’s math and literacy camp and the Hoops to Hope program, Sissac said. Sissac said the church hopes to sell 3.000 tickets, raising $30.000. The raffle is expected to get space April twenty-three. Hoops to Hope is focused on education, homelessness, and human trafficking, according to it’s .

“We all took that shot together and God is the one that keep it through the hoop,” he said Tuesday flanked church members.

Sissac said he didn’t know until he was at the game that he’d be able to compete for the car.

Tuesday, he recalled the pre-shot pep speak from Kings public address announcer Scott Moak.

“He came in the tunnel and said ‘Where’s Joseph?’ Sissac said of the crowed passageway to obtain on and off the court.

“He goes ‘Man we haven’t given far a car all season. Number one has hit the shot. I really wish to give far a car tonight. Hit the shot and go crazy,’ ” Sissac recalled.

Sissac, who played basketball growing up in Chicago, said as he approached the shot, he focused on having fun and trying not to shoot an air ball.

With the “Mission Impossible” theme song playing, Sissac dribbled three times, shoots and sends the ball through the hoop. As Moak requested, Sissac leaps for joy and dashes around the Ct collecting a shoulder bump from two players.

“I don’t believe that this was my skill that create this happen,” he said. “I think God had his hand on it.”
