Do you have any plans next week?
How about a trip to Super Bowl XLVIII?
Someone donated two tickets to the big game to the United Way of the Big Bend. The organization hopes to raise money by selling raffle tickets for $25 each or five tickets for $100.
You can buy as many tickets as you want. The game will be in New Jersey with the Denver Broncos facing the Seattle Seahawks.
This isn't the first time someone has donated tickets to the Big Bend. In fact, the same thing happened for last year's Super Bowl.
"Last year, we had a donor call and say 'hey I've come across these two tickets I'm not going to use them I'd like to donate them for you all to use for the campaign could you use them," said Heather Mitchell, president of the United Way of the Big Bend." "And we thought 'heck yeah!' We were shocked. We sold $15,000 worth of opportunities. It raised quite a bit of money for our campaign.
You can purchase raffle tickets until Wednesday. On Thursday, the United Way will draw the big winner. All proceeds will stay in the Big Bend area.
