LAS VEGAS, NV – For only $10, The UNLV Rebel Soccer Foundation (“RSF”) is offering the chance for 16 lucky people to be able to watch HAMILTON: AN AMERICAN MUSICAL from a center-stage box on its Smith Center opening weekend. That is the cost of the raffle tickets RSF is selling throughout the valley and at selected UNLV athletics and other sporting events over the next couple of months. Raffle tickets are also available to purchase by contacting Head Coach Richard Ryerson at Richard.Ryerson@unlv.edu
Hamilton: An American Musical has been the hottest ticket on Broadway since its inception in 2015. The musical is sung and rapped about the life of the American founding Father Alexander Hamilton, with music, lyrics, and book by Lyn-Manuel Miranda. It is based loosely on the Ron Chernow novel. A quick look at orchestra seating for this opening week on StubHub™ is showing tickets well in excess of $1,500 each; and the tickets being raffled are in a prized, center-stage box, BOX “J”, making the likely value well in excess of $7,500 for each set of four tickets. RSF President Dan Giraldo commented, “We are extremely happy to kick-off our fundraising campaign for this season with such an amazing offer. Hamilton is the biggest show on the planet, and the chance for four lucky winners to receive tickets worth about $7,500 for only $10 is really exciting.”
The winners will be drawn on May 15 at 1pm at UNLV’s Peter Johann Soccer Field, with UNLV’s Athletic Director Desiree Reed-Francois drawing the lucky winners, and said…“We are looking forward to another successful season under head coach Rich Ryerson’s leadership and encourage our community to help support the team through this raffle.”
There will be four drawing winners, each being awarded four (4) box seats to the matinee performance on either Saturday June 2, 2018 or Sunday June 3, 2018. The proceeds of the raffle will be used by RSF to benefit the UNLV soccer programs. The tickets have been generously provided to the RSF by The Engelstad Family Foundation.
