After this weekend, the Rams will only be bringing 53 players onto the field for their gameday. You could be right there next to them, thanks to the United Way.
Give. Bid. Win.
United Way's annual Online Auction started August 31, and runs until September 8th, the opening day of the NFL season, and there are a number of items available to bid on that Rams fans will be interested in, including:
Rams on-field package for two. This package includes two pregame field passes that will let you experience the game like the players, as well as two lower level tickets that will let you sit back and enjoy the game. You won't get that experience from your living room.
Fly with the Rams. It's not every day someone becomes a Rams VIP! Fly with the team to an away game when they travel to Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers (Dec. 24), spend the night in the official team hotel, receive tickets to the game and pregame on-field passes to walk the sidelines as the team warms up. Hit the road with the Rams and enjoy a trip you'll never forget!
Two Trips to Super Bowl XLVI: This is your chance to go to the biggest game of the year. You and a friend will be able to attend Super Bowl XLVI on February 5, 2012 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana. (And of course we hope that the Rams are there, too!)
Go online to www.givebidwin.com and sign up to bid on at least 100 items and one-time experiences. Some are valued as low as $25, others are incalculably unique. Great gifts for others or a nice treat for yourself are just a mouse click away. Proceeds from the auction go to United Way of Greater St. Louis.
Where does your money go?
The Rams have gotten a lot better since last year's event, but the economy hasn't, here or anywhere else. The good news is that all proceeds from this fundraiser stay here in the Saint Louis community -- the city, the county, the outlying counties, even across the river.
According to their statistics, one in three people in the Saint Louis area receives help from the United Way.
