Would You Pay $1,000 for a Baseball Ticket?
July 01, 2012
You probably would not pay $1,000 for a ticket, unless you were a huge fan and your team was in the World Series. But that is exactly what I am asking you to do: Donate $1,000 and come to see the Pittsburgh Pirates play the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday, July 24 for the benefit of Kenyan orphans. Let me explain.
A generous supporter has made me this offer. He will donate his private box for the upcoming game at beautiful PNC Park on Tuesday, July 24. He will pay for the box, the entrance tickets and the food that night. He has 19 tickets and is looking for 19 people who are willing to pay $1,000 each for the privilege of attending the game, and all the proceeds will go toward the Sophis Fund, which is used to feed children and widows in Kenya.
If you have never attended a game in a private box, you have missed a sumptuous affair, with great food and a super view in the air conditioned comfort of a private box (left is a picture taken from one of those private boxes). The experience is topped off by the dessert cart on wheels featuring all manner of rich sweet treats. In a sense you can come to the ball park and 'pig out' with the Pittsburgh Pirates, for the benefit of those who do not have the same privileged luxury.
So how about it? Now are you ready to pay $1,000 for a baseball ticket? I have already "sold" one ticket, so I need 18 more generous donors and baseball fans to help collect this timely and much-needed blessing for the widows and orphans in Kenya.
The tickets will go on a first-come, first-served basis. You can pay with a credit card, via PayPal or by check (payable to PurposeQuest International). All contributions are tax-deductible (minus the cost of the game tickets). Maybe you can't go but can pay for someone else to attend the game? Or perhaps you will give something less than $1,000, to help inflate the total amount donated for those in need. However you are led, you have three weeks to act, or until the tickets are gone - then you can simply give to help. Write me today and I will put your name on the ticket list, or just donate to a worthy cause, and I will work to distribute the money when I go over to Kenya in August. Thanks for your help and let's make this special offer an event to remember for those present and for those who will benefit.
