This is a giveaway for Kids & Family Night on Friday, July 18, 2014 at 7 PM!
[and now you have that Elton John song playing in your head, you're welcome! He wrote it for Billie Jean.]
I'm so excited about this giveaway. First of all, it's a sporting event right in the backyard of the Main Line. Not that I don't enjoy our fair city, but getting the kids into the city and parking for any of the other major sporting events in town can be intimidating. We did finally take the twyns to a Phillies game last summer and it was fun, but again, we didn't want to leave when everyone else did and fight the traffic, so we left a little early.
Secondly, the history of the Freedoms, founded by Billie Jean King, and with the tennis superstars they have had including Agassi, Roddick, Venus Williams...I mean, Google the list. It's ridiculous.
Thirdly, I'm excited to be a lot closer to the action! This is a sport with constant activity and I think the kids will get the concept immediately and start to enjoy it from the first minute. And it's co-ed TEAM tennis, so both my daughter and my son get to see real sportsmanship, with both genders represented, in action.
Finally, this is a night *designated* for kids & families! I imagine you'd be feeling the same way we did on our Disney cruises - it's soooooo comforting to be able to share that 'knowing nod' with other parents when your child is getting excited and perhaps LOUD and to just laugh and enjoy the moment we ALL know very well. I think my husband would be a little less embarrassed if, when he takes our son to the bathroom fifty-seven times, and he fails to prevent our son from dropping his pants entirely when he approaches a public urinal, that it is only likely to be other Dads in the same sitch.... and... that would be why we love Family night.
These tickets are for the night of Friday, July 18, and as I mentioned, the game is played at Villanova.
I'll be attending the opening night match on Tuesday, July 15th, and will be sure to let you know how it went!
As for the giveaway, just follow the rafflecopter thingy below over this weekend and I'll be wrapping up the entries by end of day July 6th so the Freedoms can get the tickets to you ASAP.
And if you can't make that night, or you don't win the tickets, you can still get a great discount by using coupon code: MOMBLOG2014
The events run for 8 nights,
Tuesday the 15th to Wednesday the 23rd.
