Epic Deal to Make It Right Gala on Groupon

Groupon today announced a campaign with Make It Right, the organization founded by Brad Pitt to build environmentally- friendly homes for people in need.  Groupon has already contributed $100,000 to Make It Right and beginning today Groupon is also offering two ways for people to get involved: a Groupon Grassroots campaign and an Epic Deal.

Groupon will sell up to 10 Epic Deal packages, which include a VIP experience with first-class airfare to New Orleans, tickets to the 2014 Make It Right Gala on May 17, 2014, and tickets to the after-party.  The Groupon Grassroots campaign encourages broad public support of Make It Right by facilitating $10 donations to the organization.  All donors to the Groupon Grassroots campaign will be automatically entered into the sweepstakes to win a trip to the Make It Right Gala.  All donations to the Groupon Grassroots campaign will go to Make It Right.  Both the Epic Deal and the sweepstakes also include an opportunity to participate in a tour of the Make It Right site in New Orleans with an award-winning architect and the chance to meet Brad Pitt.

 

“Through our social responsibility efforts, we’ve been helping build and support the communities around our thousands of local merchants since Groupon’s inception,” said Groupon CEO Eric Lefkofsky.  “By partnering with Make It Right we’re able to expose millions of people around the world to this important project and help the organization make a significant difference, one that should be replicated in struggling neighborhoods across the world.”

 

The Make It Right Gala will be hosted at The Sugar Mill in New Orleans and feature performances by platinum-selling recording artists Bruno Mars and Kings of Leon.  The Gala also features a cocktail hour, three-course dinner prepared by the city’s finest chefs, including Susan Spicer and Donald Link, local jazz musicians, gift bags and more.  More information about the Epic Deal, Groupon Grassroots campaign and sweepstakes (including how to enter without making a donation) can be found on the Groupon Grassroots campaign page.
