NEW YORK- (March 23, 2015) - With nary a ticket available for the May 2 Pacquiao vs. Mayweather fight in Las Vegas, ticket agency seats going for astronomical prices and Vegas hotel rates majorly jacked up, most boxing fans are priced out of experiencing what many are calling "The Fight of the Century" live at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
Don't despair...there is still hope.
For as low as $10 you have a chance to experience the fight in high style, plus get a whole lot more, all while helping a children's charity. Fan-funding platform FanBacked, which offers once-in-a-lifetime experiences for a charitable cause, has teamed up with Prive Society and Orangewood Children's Foundation in Santa Ana, CA, to offer a VIP Fight Weekend Experience. Make a contribution to Orangewood Children's Foundation and be entered to win two VIP tickets to the fight, two VIP tickets to the Weigh-In/Press Conference, two nights at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas and two round-trip airline tickets to Las Vegas. The offer even includes luxury sedan car service to and from the hotel.
"We are so grateful to be included in this unique and exciting opportunity to raise funds for foster youth in Orange County," said Chris Simonsen, CEO of Orangewood Children's Foundation.
For every dollar you contribute you will earn one entry into the drawing to win. The more you donate the more chances you have to win, plus you can get some pretty cool gear to also show support for your favorite fighter: "I'm With Money" or "I'm With PacMan" gear for Floyd "Money" Mayweather or Manny "PacMan" Pacquiao.
"FanBacked is proud to assist Orangewood Children's Foundation in attracting and engaging a larger pool of donors by offering this extraordinary experience," said Kai Tao, CEO of FanBacked. "The foundation does so much to help area youth in need, a small contribution by many can make a big difference in its efforts to support its mission, plus you can potentially get back much more than the feeling of good will if you're the lucky winner."
The mission of Orangewood Children's Foundation is to provide life-changing prevention and intervention programs for abused and neglected children, young adults, and at-risk families through one-on-one support and community partnerships to end the cycle of child abuse.
