[RiseandRally] With no bowl trip available for a deserving group of Penn State seniors, the RISE and RALLY group is footing the bill for them to attend a bowl-like celebration of the 2012 season. The 2013 RISE and RALLY Bowl in Atlantic City, N.J., will be filled with three days of film and autograph sessions, rallies, presentations, and party after party. It will end with a giant tailgate-themed event in the House of Blues concert hall on Monday night.
“The senior class, we’re all very excited about it,” said 2012 Penn State captain Michael Zordich. “…This is going to be a great opportunity for us to get out there and see all the fans … (and to) have a good time — just kind of mix and mingle and be ourselves.”
Nittany Lion fans, former players and members of this year’s senior class will gather at the Trump Taj Mahal Hotel Casino and the Showboat Casino in Atlantic City for the first annual RISE and RALLY Bowl Jan. 5-8. Event organizers said travel packages and event tickets have gone on sale today through the group’s website, www.RISEandRALLY.com. There are a limited number of packages available and they are going on a first-come, first served basis.
How sick is this? Only problem is, it is expensive at tits.
This is from the Q&A section of the website:
Why are the tickets so expensive?
They really are not expensive when you look at all the events, food and beverage. In addition, they include all taxes, fees, gratuities, visitor bureau fees and other costs. The event will be a first class affair with quality menus and open bar at almost all events. A portion of each ticket price is allocated to help defray the cost of each senior’s appearance at the event. Our goal is to make this a memorable bowl-like trip for each senior. The former players who have committed to attend and interact with fans are truly appreciative and are looking forward to the event.
*A portion of all ticket sales will help to defray the cost for participating seniors to appear and interact with fans. Please help us to give this senior class a bowl celebration to remember. – Riseandrally.com
