Proceeds of ticket packages auctioned for Manchester United-Real Madrid match to benefit United Way for Southeastern Michigan
DETROIT, July 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Chevrolet will offer six exclusive ticket packages for auction, including a once-in-a-lifetime "Ultimate Manchester United Fan Experience" for the highly anticipated match against Real Madrid at Michigan Stadium as part of the Guinness International Champions Cup (ICC).
Proceeds from the auction hosted at charitybuzz.com will benefit United Way for Southeastern Michigan.
Soccer fans can place bids now through July 22 for a chance to win one of six ticket packages that include four tickets to the match, hospitality, pre-game access and more. Complete auction details are available at charitybuzz.com/manchesterunited.
As the Official Shirt Sponsor of Manchester United, the team will wear Chevrolet-branded shirts during the Aug. 2 match that also feature a commemorative United Way badge. Each auction winner will receive one of the game-worn shirts from the team's new kit, which debuted earlier this week.
"Like the athletes who give their all on the field and the lifelong fans who go the distance to support them, Chevrolet wants to connect everyone with the spirit that makes soccer the world's favorite sport," said General Motors President Dan Ammann, chair for the 2014-15 United Way for Southeastern Michigan Workplace Campaign. "From backyards to the 'Big House,' Chevrolet is proud to support our local communities and United Way."
The auction extends GM's and the GM Foundation's ongoing support of United Way and its mission to improve communities and individual lives by focusing on education, financial stability and such basic needs as food and shelter.
In 2010, the GM Foundation pledged its largest grant ever – $27.1 million to United Way for Southeastern Michigan to establish a "Network of Excellence" in seven Detroit-area high schools. The grant is also helping to advance early childhood education in the area. Over the last two years, GM employees and retirees have contributed more than $11 million through the company's United Way campaign, and have donated more than 7,200 hours of volunteer service at the Network of Excellence schools since 2011.
"United Way for Southeastern Michigan is honored to partner with Chevrolet for the Manchester United auction packages - these are two of the most storied and beloved brands in the world," said Michael J. Brennan, president & CEO, United Way for Southeastern Michigan. "With the same spirit that soccer fans unite to support their team, we are committed to uniting the community in support of making Greater Detroit one of the best places to live and work. We are deeply grateful to GM for their partnership and for this exciting opportunity to move our mission forward."
