Jan and Bernie Barrish live in Randolph, N.J., but have ties to Tulane through their son Zachary, a junior business student. So when they heard about an online raffle for two Super Bowl tickets, with the proceeds to benefit Tulane athletics, they jumped on it. And won.
Their name was pulled at the final drawing recently at a Tulane basketball game.
So the winners, thrilled with their good luck, flew to Chicago and then drove to Indianapolis for the big game.
There they shared the game action with other family members who are longtime New York Giants season ticket holders.
Thanks to the Barrishes and many others who participated in the online raffle, Tulane athletics gained $15,000 to aid its student-athletes.
