Despite years of evidence to the contrary, your pals at the CD are actually not bad people. We've had some huge DVD giveaways lately, and just last night I threw some bread out for the neighborhood birds to snack on. It was a tad moldy, but there's no way the jerks at Viva El Birdos are that considerate. No chance.
Which is why our friends at Elasticity - a local marketing agency and the brilliant minds behind the American Mustache Institute - contacted us about Raffle STL. It's a raffle website benefiting St. Louis Men's Group Against Cancer, with tickets starting at $1. One of the big prizes is a chance to fly down to Florida to see the Cardinals during Spring Training.
Fly with the St. Louis Cardinals
We’ll hook you up with four tickets to two spring training games in the sunshine state. We’ll put you up for three nights in the team’s hotel. Hang with the 2011 World Series Champs and hear all the personal stories about their close series victory over the Texas Rangers and about playing under the guidance of the recently retired Tony LaRussa. If you’re a true fan, you should be giddy with excitement just reading this. Get in now for a chance to get all your best Cardinals’ swag signed at spring training camp.
So they're basically taking away all the difficult parts of a Spring Training trip? Deal. After buying waffle makers and Mad Men DVDs all weekend, the least you could do is put a few bucks towards a good cause, and maybe you'll end up in Florida while we miserably trudge through the latter part of winter.
Check out RaffleSTL.com for this and other cool raffles. Good luck to our kind readers - oh, and keep us in mind for those three extra tickets if you win.
