With fewer than two games separating the Celtics and Magic in the Eastern Conference playoff race, their April 18 matchup is sure to be a hot ticket when the two teams square off at the TD Garden.
Fans now have the opportunity to watch the showdown from Paul Pierce's personal suite — at a significantly reduced price. The Celtics captain announced Friday in a release that he is raffling off 18 tickets for the luxury box.
"I am thrilled that we are giving fans another chance to sit in my suite while helping to raise funds to support my Truth on Health Campaign," Pierce said. "It is critical for kids to understand that staying active and eating healthy are the keys to leading a happy and fulfilling life, and all of the funds we raise will help give kids the tools and information they need to live a healthy lifestyle."
Tickets for the raffle can be bought for $2 at www.netraffle.org until April 16, when three winners will be selected and awarded six tickets each (four regular seats, two standing room) to the suite.
All of the proceeds will go to Pierce's Truth on Health Campaign, which tries to raise awareness on how young people can lead healthier lifestyles.
