The Charlotte Chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities is providing sports fans with the chance to bid on a pair of tickets to Super Bowl XLVII this Sunday in New Orleans.

Fans can visit the Speedway Children’s Charities website at http://charlotte.speedwaycharities.org/ and place their bid on a pair of tickets that were donated by a corporate sponsor. The seats are located in the plaza level of the end zone, section 101, row 19. The tickets are valued at $950 per seat.

The individual with the highest bid when the auction closes at noon on Friday will win, and proceeds from the auction will support the Charities’ mission of supporting children in need through Charlotte-area nonprofit organizations.

“One lucky fan will not only get to go to a great game in New Orleans, but will also be helping children here in the Charlotte area,” said Lisa Starnes, director of the Charlotte Chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities. “Our corporate sponsor asked to remain anonymous and we’re very grateful for their generosity. This is a fun way to raise much needed funds for such a worthy cause.”
