what you'll do
After 42 years, the Skywalker saga is coming to an end with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. And who’s going to be among the first ever to see it? YOU. (Plus the insanely lucky guest you bring along.) We’ll fly you out to a galaxy far, far away (Los Angeles), where you’ll score two tickets to the film’s red carpet premiere. You’ll experience the thrilling conclusion on the big screen, among the incredible cast and crew that brought it to life, and go home with bragging rights for days. But that’s not all, because Luke Skywalker himself is also taking you out to dinner! That’s right, you’ll meet up with Mark Hamill while you’re in LA to enjoy an unforgettable meal featuring an assortment of behind-the-scenes stories that Wookieepedia doesn’t even know about. Talk about a satisfying meal. Flights and hotel included.
No donation or payment is necessary to enter or win this sweepstakes.
who you'll help
The USC McMorrow Neighborhood Academic Initiative (NAI) is a comprehensive pre-college program designed to prepare students from South and East Los Angeles for admission to a college or university. Here’s how it works: Students participate in a seven-year program of after-school tutoring and Saturday morning classes. Parents attend a biweekly Family Development Institute program to create a 360 degree, hands-on approach to reinforce student academic goals and study habits and maximize a healthy home environment. Students who remain in the program in good standing from sixth grade until their high school graduation are eligible for a fully funded financial aid package (minus loans) to USC, provided they meet admission requirements. NAI currently supports more than 1,000 children each year, and your contribution will help them continue and expand their programs so more kids have access to higher education.

Winner Confirmation Process:
Within 10 business days of campaign close, we’ll use an automated random drawing process to draw a potential winner(s) for that campaign. A confirmation process, which may include a background check, will then take place to ensure the potential winner meets the legal standards required. Winner and, if applicable, their guest(s) agree to cooperate fully with Omaze in Omaze conducting any background check(s), which includes providing information requested by Omaze including, but not limited to, full legal names and addresses. If the Prize includes meeting a celebrity, meeting a public figure, or attending a special event and any background check indicates, in Omaze’s sole discretion, that the potential winner or the potential winner’s guest(s) pose a danger to or may harm the reputation of any person or entity involved in the sweepstakes, Omaze may disqualify said winner and move on to the next randomly drawn potential winner. Pending a positive outcome of the confirmation process, an Omaze representative will notify the potential winner via email and/or phone. The potential winner must respond within the time period designated in the notification, or Omaze may move on to another randomly drawn potential winner. Before confirming a potential winner as the winner, Omaze may require the potential winner to confirm their eligibility. Once that’s done, the potential winner and guest(s) must execute and return all required documents within the time frame specified by Omaze. If you do not execute and return all required documents within the time frame specified by Omaze, you will forfeit the Prize and Omaze will move on to another randomly drawn potential winner.
NO PURCHASE, PAYMENT, OR CONTRIBUTION NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. Contributing will not improve chances of winning. Void where prohibited.
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!
