$100 Super Bowl tickets
By: Erin Arvedlund, Inquirer Staff Writer
Eagles madness has made ticket-holders the envy of everyone in Greater Philadelphia. Support Center for Child Advocates, an agency that pairs lawyers and social service advocates with abused children, offered two pairs of Super Bowl 2018 tickets at its annual benefit auction back in April 2017.
One pair went in a raffle — at cost of just $100 — and the second pair went up for a live auction and sold for $2,750.
“Who could have predicted that the Eagles would win the playoffs?” said Frank Cervone, executive director at Support Center for Child Advocates, which provides legal assistance and social service advocacy for abused and neglected children in the Philadelphia County.
Soodabeh Jaffari and Mark Pasierb were the highest bidders at the charity auction. Tami Levin bought the winning raffle ticket.
Mark Pasierb, president of Pitcairn Properties, had won a pair of 2017 tickets at the Child Advocates auction the prior year, and traveled to Houston to see the Patriots beat the Falcons.
“That was a great game and was thrilled to be at the Super Bowl, but this year, I hope to see the Patriots lose,” said Pasierb. “Go Eagles!”
Tami Levin, former director of victim services at the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office, bought a raffle ticket “because I wanted to support this amazing agency in a small way. I can’t believe I won!”
The two pairs of tickets were donated to Child Advocates last year. Their next event is the upcoming benefit auction on April 18. For event information, visit https://sccalaw.org/upcoming_events/.
