Local YMCA to benefit from next "Get In And Win" Charity Challenge

FRISCO, Texas (Sept. 10, 2010) – As FC Dallas takes its MLS season-high 13-game unbeaten streak to San Jose Saturday, President and CEO Doug Quinn is looking to extend his own “Get In and Win Charity Challenge” unbeaten streak against Earthquakes Executive Vice President Dave Alioto.

An FC Dallas win at Buck Shaw Stadium would earn the Frisco YMCA four 2011 season tickets. Should San Jose come away with a victory, Quinn will donate four 2011 season tickets to the San Jose-based charity of Alioto’s choice.
This week, Quinn chose the Frisco YMCA, an organization of men, women and children joined together by a shared commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility. The mission of the non-profit group is to establish Christian principles through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all.

Quinn previously pledged four 2011 season tickets to the Frisco Miracle League three weeks ago, courtesy of childhood friend and Chivas USA President Shawn Hunter. The two wagered the charitable donation on the outcome of the Aug. 21 match between their two sides, which saw Dallas finish on top 1-0.

Dallas continued its hot-streak by breaking the all-time MLS record for a road unbeaten streak with a draw in Columbus on Aug. 28. Following the match, Quinn donated four more 2011 season tickets to Lift Up America. Most recently, Quinn sent the Dallas branch of Dress for Success two 2011 season tickets as FC Dallas defeated Toronto FC 1-0 on Sept. 4. The win extended the club’s home winning streak to six-games.
Quinn intends to carry on his charitable ticket donations for the remaining 2010 FC Dallas games. The club’s “Get In and Win” season ticket campaign delivers huge savings to new and returning season ticket holders. Anyone who renews or purchases 2011 season tickets before Monday, Oct. 4 will receive either a 30-40 percent discount on the 2010 pricing for 2011 season tickets, or a free seat upgrade.

Premium seating options such as the Winstar Club Loge, Field Tables, Center Circle and Club seats are also available in limited inventory. Contact the FC Dallas Front Office at (888) 323-4625 for details or go to www.fcdallas.com/getinandwin <http://www.fcdallas.com/getinandwin> .
