what you'll do
UFC is returning to Australia, and you’re going along for the ride as Dana White’s VIP! You and a friend will join the UFC President in Melbourne for all the action of UFC 243—starting with the dramatic weigh-ins. Dana will bring you on stage to soak up the electric energy, snap photos and see the fighters face each other one last time before the octagon. The next day, you’ll head to Dana’s private section to take in the main event from the best seats in the house. With Australia-native Robert Whittaker up against New Zealand’s own Israel Adesanya, plus a crucial lightweight bout between Al Iaquinta and Dan Hooker, you’re in for an epic time Down Under. Flights and hotel included!
No donation or payment is necessary to enter or win this sweepstakes.

Conditional Winners will be chosen through a random selection process by Omaze or its representative. Odds of winning depend on the number of tickets held. A verification process will take place during which conditional Winners will be required to sign paperwork re-confirming their eligibility and their ability to participate on given dates.

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!
