Football Charity Raffle Long Island Nonprofit Raffling Two Tickets to The Big Game
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MINEOLA, NEW YORK, November 29th, 2017 – Family & Children’s Association (FCA), a leading health and human services nonprofit on Long Island, is raffling off two tickets to The Big Game. With only 100 raffle tickets being sold, this is your best chance to attend America’s most popular sporting event without paying exorbitant ticket prices. In addition, the raffle offers a second place prize winner $2,500.
The game will be held in Minneapolis, Minnesota on Sunday, February 4th at the U.S. Bank Stadium. Last February, CBS Sports reported average ticket prices for the 2016 game selling for $4,000 and 2017 tickets selling between $4,744 and $5,650. The expectation is for ticket prices this year to go even higher. In September of this year, CNBC reported “prices for Super Bowl LII tickets range from expensive to super, incredibly expensive.” As stated by Don Renzulli, VP of events for NFL’s official ticket partners in the CNBC report, there will be four tiers of tickets for the 2018 Super Bowl ranging from $6,299 to $13,499. Even the cheapest third party ticket found in the report cost $3,705.
At $300 per raffle ticket and a 1/50 chance of winning either two tickets to The Big Game or $2,500, this opportunity is truly one of a kind.
FCA President/CEO Dr. Jeffrey Reynolds, said of the news, “A chance like this to experience The Big Game at such an affordable price with great odds does not come often and it means a great deal to FCA that the winner will associate their experience of attending The Big Game with FCA.”
Proceeds from raffle tickets sales will benefit FCA’s mission to protect and strengthen Long Island, NY’s most vulnerable children, seniors, families and their communities. In a time when Long Island continues to combat the opioid epidemic, when the aging population’s basic needs keeps growing, children’s mental health services are harder to access and homeless youth need a place to stay, FCA works tirelessly each and every day to make Long Island an even better place to live.
