Super Bowl Raffle Ticket Sales End Soon

Super Bowl Raffle Ticket Sales End Soon

12/03/2013 

It’s a small stocking stuffer in size, but one that offers a big-time prize, the trip of a lifetime and major scholarship support for SUNY Cortland students.

A limited number of raffle tickets remain offering the chance to win an expenses-paid trip for two to professional football’s biggest game at MetLife Stadium on Sunday, Feb. 2.

Only 500 tickets will be sold through late December at $100 apiece.

The College acquired the tickets through its close ties with the NFL’s New York Jets, the team that calls SUNY Cortland its official university partner and summer training camp home.

All of the money raised from the raffle will go exclusively to the Cortland College Foundation scholarship fund, which supports first-generation college students, high achievers in the classroom and those with financial need.

One lucky raffle participant will receive the deluxe package worth $4,375. The grand prize includes two tickets to the championship game at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.; a three-night stay from Friday, Jan. 31, to Monday, Feb. 3, at the Courtyard Secaucus Meadowlands; and $1,000 for travel and other expenses.

It’s the fifth time SUNY Cortland will offer the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. A graduate has won each of the four previous raffles.

Sean Murray ’80, last year’s winner, shared an unforgettable trip to New Orleans with his wife and witnessed a second-half thriller between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers.

“Having not won much else in my life, it was a blessing,” said Murray, of Cincinnati. “To me, it’s a good way to give back with just a little bit of incentive.”

This year’s drawing will be held Monday, Dec. 30, and all entries must be received by Monday, Dec. 23. Participants must be at least 18 years of age to purchase a raffle ticket.

Those interested in buying a raffle ticket should send payment, cash or check, with name, home address, phone number and an email address to Sheila Morse, the financial operations specialist for the Cortland College Foundation, at P.O. Box 2000, Cortland, NY 13045. Checks should be made payable to Cortland College Foundation, Inc.
