AAFES Gives Military Shoppers Chance to ‘Pin Down’ Trip to Wrestlemania 24

The Army & Air Force Exchange Service is “tag teaming” with World Wrestling Entertainment to provide military shoppers at BXs and PXs throughout the continental United States with an opportunity to win a free trip for two to Orlando for Wrestlemania 24. The “Wrestlemania 24 Getaway Sweepstakes” includes round trip airfare for two, three nights hotel, two tickets to Wrestlemania 24 and $500 in spending money. The approximate retail value of the winning package is $3,000.

“Whether the winning entry comes from the Ft. Lewis PX or the Tyndall Air Force Base BX, AAFES is going to send one lucky Soldier or Airman and their guest to see the pageantry and drama of sports entertainment’s greatest event live and in person,” said AAFES Chief Marketing Officer Richard Sheff. “The ‘decision’ to enter is a no-brainer.”

Military shoppers can register for the sweepstakes at all CONUS AAFES locations through Feb. 28 with the winner being announced on or about March 7.

Wrestlemania 24, WWE’s annual extravaganza, will take place on Sunday, March 30 at the Florida Citrus Bowl in Orlando, marking only the second time in the event’s history that it will be held outdoors. Last year saw more than 63,000 fans from 22 countries and all 50 states converge on Detroit for Wrestlemania 23 and this year’s event is expected to draw similar numbers.
