The Television Academy Foundation and Prizeo, the online giving platform that democratizes giving for all income levels, announced today that they have partnered on a special sweepstakes to give one lucky winner and a guest the opportunity to attend the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted by Stephen Colbert.
This is the first time the Television Academy has participated in a sweepstakes in which the general public can vie for a chance to attend “television’s biggest night.”
With just a $10 donation at prizeo.com/emmys, fans will receive 100 entries for the chance to win the Ultimate VIP Emmy Awards Experience on Sunday, September 17 — two orchestra tickets to the 69th Emmy Awards at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles, plus two tickets to the Governors Ball (the official Emmy Awards After-Party), a backstage tour before the show and a walk down the red carpet, plus round-trip airfare and hotel accommodations for two.
This Ultimate Emmy Awards Experience benefits the Television Academy Foundation, the charitable arm of the Television Academy dedicated to educating and inspiring television’s future leaders while preserving and celebrating the rich history of the industry.
“We’re thrilled to team up with Prizeo on this exciting Emmy Sweepstakes to raise funds and awareness for the Foundation,” said Jodi Delaney, executive director of the Television Academy Foundation. “Funds raised through this partnership will help us create career and training opportunities for the next generation of creative talent entering our industry.”
"We’re excited to be hosts to the Ultimate Emmy Awards Experience on Prizeo in support of the work of the Television Academy Foundation," says Jan Friedlander Svendsen, Charity Network’s Chief Marketing Officer. “We are eager to share the magic of the Emmy Awards night with our generous Prizeo community and raise money for this worthy cause.”
The Ultimate Emmy Awards Experience runs from August 1 – September 1 at prizeo.com/emmys.
The 69th Emmy Awards will telecast live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, Sunday, September 17 (8:00-11:00 PM ET/5:00-8:00 PM PT) on CBS. Stephen Colbert will serve as host.
