Soccer friends! I’ve opened up my “vault” of soccer collectibles for a charity raffle to benefit JJ Watt’s Houston Flood Relief Fund. Below are the items in the raffle, which begins today (Friday, September 1) and runs through Sunday, September 3.
Fans can buy an unlimited amount of tickets for each item’s individual raffle via EventBrite.com. Winners will be selected randomly at the Dash v Seattle watch party in Houston on Sunday, September 3 but you do NOT have to be present to win. Prizes will be shipped to winners in the U.S. at no cost (any international winners will have to pay for USPS priority mail int’l shipping). No refunds.
Deadline to buy raffle tickets online is 5 pm CT on Sunday, September 3. Tickets can be purchased at the Phoenix on Westheimer (cash only) until kickoff of the Dash game (7 pm CT, airing live on go90.com). Questions? Email email@example.com.
