Last week, Joseph Sissac, the pastor of a church in Sacramento, stunned the crowd at a Sacramento Kings game by doing the incredible. The NBA team has a tradition of letting audience members take a half-court shot during a home game for a chance to win a car--and so far this season, everyone had missed.

Until Pastor Sissac stepped up to try. Standing 47 feet away from the basket, he dribbled the ball and threw it--and sunk it into the hoop. The crowd went wild.
But that was just the first miracle. When the minister and his wife arrived at the dealership, they had a change of heart--and decided to donate the car. Sissac added $2,000 to upgrade the prize from a Ford Fiesta to a Focus so he could raffle the car away for two causes near to his heart.
“We want to take another shot and use this vehicle to help change lives of people in our community,” he said at a press conference in Sacramento.
The church plans to sell 3,000 $10 raffle tickets to raise $30,000. The money will be split between his church's summer math camp for kids and Hoops for Hope, a program that helps the homeless.

Why give back instead of keeping the car for himself? “We all took that shot together and God is the one that put it through the hoop,” Sissac said.
