New York Giants Player Prince Amukamara Offers Chance To Win Tickets and More in a Super Bowl Raffle to Benefit Books For Africa and IFESH


Prince Amukamara, the rookie cornerback of the Super Bowl-bound New York Giants, is giving sports fans everywhere a chance to win Super Bowl tickets while supporting St. Paul-based Books For Africa and Arizona-based IFESH (International Foundation for Education and Self-Help).

Amukamara wanted to give money to the two groups to aid in their work in Africa, as his parents are from Nigeria. “This is a unique and fun way to engage Super Bowl fans and others in a great cause that will benefit the people of Africa,” said Pat Plonski, executive director of Books For Africa. “Our goal is to end the book famine in Africa. We’re happy to partner with IFESH and Prince Amukamara in this effort.”

The top prize is two tickets for the Feb. 5 Super Bowl at Lucas Oil Field in Indianapolis as the guests of Amukamara.

Entering the raffle is easy. Just go to the Celebrities for Charity website to purchase tickets. Each ticket costs $2, with a minimum purchase of five. Deadline is 9 a.m. Central time, Thursday, Feb. 2.
