what you'll do
Are you hungry? You will be after reading this. You’ve scored the ultimate foodie adventure in Italy where your meals will be mouthwatering and the wine will be flowing. Grab your BFF (best foodie friend) and your stretchy pants because you’re in for a treat. Private tours (and a vespa ride!) of Modena and Parma to learn about the history, culture and architecture, are only the beginning. You’ll head to the legendary Osteria Francescana, and quickly see why they have three Michelin stars, during your 10-course tasting menu and wine pairing. And after eating all the delicious food in Modena, you’ll head to Positano to join Andrew Rea of Binging with Babish and learn new skills during a cooking class from the one-and-only Mamma Agata! What could be better than a view of the Amalfi Coast out the window and fresh homemade pasta on your plate? Flights and hotel included. *Bookings subject to availability.
No donation or payment is necessary to enter or win this sweepstakes.

At Omaze, we believe fundraising should be about impact, not percentages. Our model allows us, in partnership with Charities Aid Foundation America (we call them CAFA), to really make a difference and disrupt the way society traditionally thinks about charitable giving.
Here’s how it works: Omaze and CAFA work together to offer incredible prizes and experiences that anyone can potentially win. You don’t have to donate to enter, but if you do, your donation to CAFA is then used to make a charitable grant to a great cause, which we love. Omaze pays for everything that’s needed to run the sweepstakes, which means the only ones taking a chance are the entrants (you!)—not the charity. The nonprofit can spend less time worrying about raising funds, and instead focus their energy on doing awesome work.
*Omaze also invests in securing the prizes for the typical Omaze Owned campaign, so for these, from every dollar you donate, 15 cents is passed directly through to CAFA, all of which is then used by CAFA to make a grant to the associated charity. If there are multiple charities, then grants of equal share are made to each charity. 70 cents is typically used to actually get the prize, process payments and advertise to awesome people like you (Omaze Owned campaigns require more marketing efforts since we can’t rely on celebrities to help spread the word). The remaining 15 cents of your dollar goes to Omaze—it’s used to cover the cost of providing and maintaining the technology and team that makes this all happen.
The result? Causes get a guaranteed grant with no risk and no overhead or investment, our lucky winners get awesome prizes, and everyone else gets to help a great cause and spread joy!
