Any ticket, whether it's a $10 ticket or a $10,000 ticket, becomes worthless if it doesn't get used. By donating those unused tickets to 501Seats, we have a chance to make sure they're used and, at the same time, help charities.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 10, 2010
Continuing its campaign to turn empty seats into money for charity, 501Seats, the charity that hosts online ticket auctions of unused tickets in support of other charities, is auctioning VIP Luxury Box tickets for the September 12th Washington Redskins home opener against the Dallas Cowboys.
Founded on the principle that empty seats -- no matter where they are -- cost everyone something, a generous corporate donor with extra luxury suite space has agreed to ensure those empty seats get filled by donating six tickets to be auctioned for charity. Keeping within 501Seats's normal auction process, the bidding price for these VIP Luxury Box tickets start at $5.01 per ticket, the auction is being run as a "blind" online auction at http://www.501seats.com, and 100% of the proceeds are going to charity. This combination of exclusive tickets, an online auction, and charity make these empty seats an incredible opportunity to get a once-in-a-lifetime experience while also supporting the charitable organizations working to better our world.
"501Seats is delivering an important message," says Aaron Dinin, 501Seats co-founder and executive director, "and I think people are really starting to hear it. This incredibly generous donation demonstrates the power of what we're trying to accomplish. Any ticket, whether it's a $10 ticket or a $10,000 ticket, becomes worthless if it doesn't get used. By donating those unused tickets to 501Seats, we have a chance to make sure they're used and, at the same time, help charities. We've essentially figured out a way to recycle tickets, and by doing this, everyone wins: venues get larger crowds, performers get bigger audiences, and consumers get access to tickets they otherwise wouldn't have had. And all of these great things happen while also helping charities. What could be better?"
