Choose from one of these four exciting experiences:


Check Out the Champions

For one of the great rivalries in the AFC, join the Champion New England Patriots as they battle the Miami Dolphins. With only six games left to play in the regular season as they strive for another Super Bowl ring, the Patriots meet the Dolphins on November 26, 2017 in Foxboro. It’s a 1:00pm game (subject to change) so there is plenty of time to enjoy tailgating before or after the game. Then root on Belichick, Brady and the team to victory from Section 126, Row 35, Seats 13 and 14. • Donated by Carol & John Rozen


Purr-fect Night in Boston

Take a mini-vacation with a one night stay at the luxurious boutique Boston Yacht Haven Inn with its breathtaking views of Boston’s skyline and it’s harbor. Stroll through the North End and along the waterfront for a romantic prelude to dinner & drinks at Mamma Maria’s, where you have a $100 gift card to enjoy a menu which balances their commitment to Italian authenticity with a reliance on local food sources. The Boston Yacht Haven Inn certificate expires on October 28, 2018 and cannot be used in July, August or on holidays. • Donated by Chuck & Ann Lagasse; Mike & Gail Lynch
