|Sandy Claws of the Super Bowl|
I confess, we didn't make you hip to Rob Gronkowski's charity Super Bowl raffle because we didn't want to ruin our chances of winning Super Bowl tiks. However we also cast our lot into the Light Foundation's super awesome-and-it's-for-a-good-cause drawing. Because karma bit us in the tail pad on Gronk's drawing we are tipping you off for a fantasy package that will also help youths in need realize their dreams. Matt Light's Big Game in Indy Raffle is crazy generous including enough for last-minute flights and, well:
-Winner and a guest will be Matt Light's special guests at the 2012 Super Bowl Game on Sunday, February 5, 2012 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana
-Winner and a guest will receive 3 nights accommodations at a premium hotel for Friday, February 3rd, Saturday, February 4th and Sunday, February 5th, 2012 (single room, double occupancy)
-Winner will receive a travel allowance of up to $2,000 (if needed, if used)
-Winner will receive an autographed Tom Brady jersey as well as a football autographed by the entire starting offensive line delivered personally by Matt Light (post season on a mutually agreed upon date)
-Winner will be awarded a cash prize in the amount of $2,117.50 to mitigate the Winner's tax liability that results from winning the raffle. This prize is withheld and paid, on behalf of the Winner, directly to the IRS ($1,750) and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts ($367.50). The actual amount awarded may be adjusted proportionally based on the value of the actual prizes received.
Tickets are two bucks a pop with a minimum purchase of five. If you don't have a "guest" one of us from the Blauhg is willing to fill in. And if you do win we have one more wish: see if in lieu of garnering the autographed game ball yourself, see if he will deliver it to Eli's apartment.
