MCCS to send raffle winner to Super Bowl XLIV in Miami

By Lance Cpl. Graham J. Benson | | October 29, 2009

In an attempt to boost attendance this football season, Marine Corps Community Services clubs and restaurants throughout the Corps are offering a chance to win the football fan’s ultimate dream – a trip to the Super Bowl.

The MCCS Football Bash will run from Oct. 30 to Dec. 3. During that time, all patrons of MCCS restaurants or clubs can enter a raffle for a chance to win an all-expenses paid, five-day trip for two to Super Bowl XLIV in Miami, as well as $500 in spending money.

A drawing will be held at each Marine Corps installation, Dec. 4 with first place winners’ entries moving forward to compete for the grand prize drawing in Quantico, Va., Dec. 11.

The grand prize winner will not be the only one collecting loot, however. The second and third place winners from the Quantico drawing will receive $1,000 and $500 respectively, as well as other merchandise.

In addition to the Corpswide raffle, each of the first through third place winners at the individual Marine Corps installations will also be awarded merchandise.

“This is a great promotion for a very popular time of year, football season,” said Marty Carter, general manager of the Sonoran Pueblo club complex here. “We’ve been really busy lately because of (the Weapons and Tactics Instructors course), and hopefully this will bring a little more excitement to the club once it’s over.”

The Sonoran Pueblo offers more than 30 televisions featuring NFL Sunday Ticket, which provides viewing of all NFL games every Sunday, regardless of which games are televised on standard programming.

The offer isn’t available strictly on game days, and the raffle entries can be filled out during any visit to the Sonoran Pueblo, said Carter.

Customers can also submit more than one entry, but each submission must be done on separate trips to the club.

Entries must be legible and complete or will be considered void.
