LOS ANGELES, Dec. 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Fanthropic, a 15 Seconds of Fame Company, and the American Cancer Society announced today an exciting opportunity to help save lives and win the Super Bowl trip of a lifetime. This exclusive Super Bowl LIII weekend ticket package will help make a "Crucial Catch" in the fight against cancer.
With a minimum $10 contribution to the American Cancer Society, one lucky fan (and their guest) can win the Ultimate Super Bowl Weekend, February 1-3, 2019, and sit next to a celebrity at the game. The prize will include two tickets to Super Bowl LIII at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, pre-game sideline passes for a once-in-a-lifetime view from the field, a meet and greet with the halftime show headliner, two tickets to the NFL Honors award show and access to the hottest parties including: Rolling Stone, DirectTV, and Wheels Up.

All proceeds will support the American Cancer Society's Community Health Advocates implementing Nationwide Grants for Empowerment and Equity (CHANGE) program, which promotes health equity and addresses cancer-related disparities. CHANGE grants are funded by the National Football League's Crucial Catch partnership with ACS. Funds raised address cancer prevention, early detection, and timely access to follow-up care helping more people catch cancer early, when it may be easier to treat. These efforts have impacted over 750,000 people, particularly in high-risk communities.
"It's such an honor to work with Fanthropic to offer this amazing experience for a fan to attend the Super Bowl, and raise critical funds to help us continue to fight cancer," said Sharon Byers, Chief Development, Marketing and Communications Officer for the American Cancer Society.
"Our work and partnership with ACS is a prime example of why Fanthropic was created," said Jarred Snyder, co-founder of Fanthropic.
