“Ed King and King Estate Winery provide FOOD for Lane County with a great deal of support and are always looking for creative ways to help the organization alleviate hunger in Lane County," said Beverlee Hughes, FFLC Executive Director. "The donation of these two BCS Championship tickets should raise significant funds to help distribute food to those in need. We are grateful for King Estate’s ongoing support and their many generous donations.”
 
Hughes said the auction is for the pair of tickets only. They do not come with travel or accommodations. 

“This is basically an incredible opportunity for someone who is already planning to be in Arizona and still hoping to be at the game but needs tickets. Even if you can’t get to Arizona, the tickets would also make a great souvenir of this historic event.” 

The retail value of the two tickets is $690.

The tickets are in Section 108, Row 6, Seats 9 & 10 on the Oregon side. >>>See stadium map that shows seat location
