The New Orleans Saints have announced plans to hold a raffle for an authentic Super Bowl ring from the team’s victory last February.
As oil has invaded the coasts of the Gulf South, thousands of families have been directly impacted by the oil spill and threaten the livelihoods of residents who make their living on the beaches and waterways near Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi and Florida.
The winner will be announced at the Saints’ season opener on September 9.
The Saints say the winner will also receive a cash prize in the amount of $2,178.00 to mitigate the Winner’s tax liability that results from winning the raffle. The money will be withheld and paid to the IRS ($1,800.00) and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts ($378.00).
Tickets start at $2.00 each. The minimum order will be five tickets. Details will follow but here’s the announcement.
