GPFFL_event squareThe Greater Philadelphia Flag Football League (GPFFL) is proud to present the “Big Game Event II” on Sunday, February 5th, 2012 to raise money for Action AIDS and the GPFFL.  Guests are invited to watch the “Big Game on the Big Screen," at International House’s 350-seat Ibrahim Theater, located at 3701 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104.  The event starts with a VIP reception at 5:00 PM while doors open for general admission ticketholders at 6:00. Festivities will include food, drinks, open bar, silent auction, raffles, and dessert.  Ticket prices range from $40 per person to $125, available for purchase at http://actionaids.org/node/7292

At 5:00 PM, the “Big Game Event II” kicks off with a VIP reception featuring hot food, signature drinks, and special desserts from Dolci diTommaso (www.dolciditommaso.com).   All VIPs will also receive a free $25 gift card from B2 Salon, located at 777 S. Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA 19147 along with several other special perks.  At 6:00 PM, doors will open to all ticketholders for the main event.  In addition to a viewing of football's annual “Big Game on the Big Screen,” the event will feature an extensive silent auction, raffles, hot and cold food, open bar (wine, vodka and beer), and desserts from Dolci diTommaso. 

The “Big Game Event II” is sponsored by B2 Salon, diTommaso’s Pasticceria, KL Graphic Design and Illustration, Nightlifegay.com, Phillygaycalendar.com, Philadelphia Gay News and R Squared Design.  Last January, the first edition of this exciting event raised thousands of dollars for charities in need and the push is on to top that performance in 2012.

Donations from the event will help provide an array of services to 5,000+ persons living with HIV/AIDS in the Philadelphia region through ActionAIDS, while proceeds will also support ongoing efforts by the GPFFL to impact the greater community beyond the field. Each year, members of the GPFFL donate hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars to support other non-profit organizations in their quest to make Philadelphia and the surrounding area a better place for all. Both the GPFFL and ActionAIDS are 501(c)(3) non-profits, meaning all donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. 

Tickets for general admission are $40 in advance and $50 at the door.  VIP tickets are $65 and include one ticket to the VIP reception. Host committee tickets are $125, and include two tickets to the VIP reception and main event, listing on materials, and a free $25 gift card from B2 Salon. Once again, tickets can be purchased at http://actionaids.org/node/7292 but note the event is only open to adults 21 and older.  

Other donation and sponsorship opportunities are available leading up to "gametime." For more information, contact “Big Game” co-chairs Kory M. Aversa (koryaversa@gmail.com215-840-9216) or  Carmen Gervasio (carmengervasio@hotmail.com215-939-4674).
