Charity 2017

TPSF and Pets For Vets Georgia Chapter

petsforvets-logo-blue-red-desaturated

For the second year in a row, Three Piece Suit Football is supporting Pets For Vets Georgia Chapter! As a registered 501c3 non-profit organization, Pets For Vets Georgia Chapter’s mission is to help rescue homeless/shelter dogs and train them to be service animals for Veterans in need! Pets For Vets Georgia Chapter works locally with Georgia Veterans to meet their needs and match them with a dog that will aid in helping the Veteran to cope with a variety of issues including PTSD, TBI (traumatic brain injury), and other challenges.

Last year TPSF raised over $7000 for Pets for Vets GA Chapter! There are several ways to support this great cause at this year’s Three Piece Suit Football Game, so help us out-do ourselves this year!

 

50/50 Charity Raffle:single-ticket

Leading up to and during the game, TPSF players and members are selling $10 50/50 Raffle tickets to support the Charity. For each $10 ticket purchased online (PURCHASE 50/50 TICKETS HERE), a 50/50 ticket will be filled out in your name! If you’re buying tickets to support a particular player/member, please note that in the message box upon check-out. Following transaction completion, an email verification of your donation will be sent.

IMPORTANT: You DO NOT have to be present at the 50/50 Raffle drawing to win (Drawing held after the game at the park). We will have your email/phone contact when you purchase tickets and will notify you if you win and are not present at the event!

Important Info for potential donors:

  • What is a 50/50 Raffle? A “50/50 Raffle” is when half of the money will go to support the charity (in this case, Pets For Vets GA Chapter) and the other half will go to the winner of the drawing.
  • Donors do NOT have to be present to win.
  • We haven’t set a cap on the number of tickets sold, but last year we sold over 300 with the winner taking home over $1,000 in CASH.

Frequently Asked Questions

What exactly is Three Piece Suit Football?

Three Piece Suit Football (TPSF) is an annual charity football game played every Super Bowl Saturday in Atlanta. This exciting game features men & women engaging in full-contact tackle football while wearing three-piece suits! TPSF originated in Atlanta in 2009 and started a Boston Chapter in 2014 (click here for full TPSF history). Our annual game has grown into a festival, and for the second year in a row will be held at the Historic Fourth Ward Skatepark athletic field, along Atlanta’s popular BeltLine urban trail!

The charity festival will feature food trucks, beer from Monday Night Brewing, face painting for kids, live music from Wasted Potential Brass Band, and a Frisbee dog halftime show! Of course, the centerpiece of the fun-for-all-ages festival is a picture-worthy game of tackle football being played by men and women in classy, colorful, and often flamboyant three-piece suits! This spectator-friendly event makes for a great afternoon in the park!

Support for Pets For Vets is raised during the event through beer sales, prize raffles with drawings all afternoon, donations, and a 50/50 raffle to cap it all off! There will be many opportunities to win great prizes and gift cards with all proceeds going to the charity!

So bring your friends and family out, stop by the food trucks & beer tent, and enjoy an afternoon of hard-hitting tailored football to support a worthy cause!
