Later today, Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma will join PFT Live. He’ll be promoting an interesting raffle being organized by Saints players who have gathered for informal workouts in New Orleans.
For $2 per ticket, with a minimum buy of five tickets, anyone over the age of 18 can hope for a chance to join Vilma, quarterback Drew Brees, and other Saints players on May 25.
The winner also will receive a VIP pass to bring a guest to the practice, breakfast with Brees and other Saints players, one night at the Ritz-Carlton New Orleans, an autographed football, a player gift bag, a travel allowance of up to $3,500, and $300 for travel and food-related expenses.
The prize also includes an incredibly important “gross-up” (not to be confused with “true-up”), with the winner having taxes associated with the prize paid directly to state and federal taxing agencies. (More folks should do this.)
Entries are being accepted until 1:00 p.m. ET today, at CelebritiesforCharity.org.
