Quinn eyes third victory in "Get In and Win" Charity Challenge
FRISCO, Texas (Sept. 22, 2010) – President and CEO Doug Quinn will continue his string of “Get In and Win Charity Challenge” wagers against New England COO Brian Bilello as FC Dallas takes on the Revolution Wednesday at Pizza Hut Park.
Should FC Dallas defeat New England, four FCD 2011 season tickets will be donated to the Frisco Family YMCA by Bilello. However, if the Revolution can find a way to break up Dallas’ 15-game unbeaten streak, Quinn will donate four Revolution season tickets to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston.
The “Get In and Win Charity Challenge” has already produced 10 tickets for local charities since Aug. 21. 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.
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 first pledged four 2011 season tickets to the Frisco Miracle League, 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 2011 season tickets to Lift Up America. Quinn then sent the Dallas branch of Dress for Success two 2011 season tickets as FC Dallas defeated Toronto FC 1-0 on Sept. 4.
