what you'll do
You’ve been rocking out to Jeff Lynne’s ELO since they debuted in 1970. And now, in 2019, you’ll not only rock out from VIP front row seats at their show, you’ll also meet the rock and roll legend Jeff Lynne himself! You and a friend will score access to the band’s closed-off soundcheck where you’ll meet Jeff—and you’ll go home with more than just pictures. Jeff will also give you a signed Gibson Les Paul guitar! (Just for you, sorry friend.) But that’s not where your night ends. You’ll enjoy a special backstage production tour to see all the magic that goes into their amazing show. And then it’s time for the show itself, where you’ll sing and dance along to their decades of hits from front row seats complete with all the Gold VIP Package perks. (We’re talking a photo booth, special merch and more!) No one could bring you down after this. Flights and hotel included.
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.
*This means that for the typical campaign, from every dollar you donate, 60 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. Of the remaining 40 cents, 25 cents is typically used to pay for things like advertising, payment processing and the costs of making the campaign a success—including providing the prize. Then the last 15 cents goes to Omaze and is 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!
