Courtesy of MasterCard, this week we'll be giving away two tickets to the Feb 5 Human Rights Campaign's NYC Gala Dinner at the Waldorf Astoria. The prize does not include travel accommodations, so the winner will need to live in the NYC area. You'll be seated at the MasterCard table.
Many of you have complained that the cost of attending one of HRC's galas keeps you from attending. (Tickets are $400 each.) You have questions you'd like to ask, people you'd like to mingle with, or just want to hear for yourself what's said. MasterCard realizes that in today's economy, it makes it harder for some in our historically underemployed community to attend. To help make the event more accessible, they've turned to Bilerico Project for help.
The contest will run through Friday, January 28, 2011 at midnight Pacific time. You can only enter once - any duplicate entries will be deleted. Bilerico Project contributors are not eligible to win.
To win, just leave a comment on this post telling us why you think we should pick you and why you want to attend. This will not be a random drawing, I'll be picking the most persuasive comment to award the prize.
By entering, you give us permission to share your e-mail address and name with the firm handling the giveaway for MasterCard. They'll also be giving away tickets all week on Twitter; just follow them at @mastercard to try and win tickets that way too.
