When we agreed to trade the 1972 Gran Torino for “The Big” Wedding Package, we knew it would be our biggest gamble yet… a go-for-broke trade that would risk it all and leave us with nothing but faith that something great would happen. That something happened today… We are excited to announce Trade #19 of The “Big” Wedding Package to the Minnesota Timberwolves for a full season Executive Suite & LifeTime Fitness package!
This incredible win for the Big Trade Up was nothing short of a buzzer beater victory. With our season on the line, we had growing concern that this amazing $53,000 dream wedding package had simply become TOO BIG for the average newly engaged couple. As our hope faded with this staggering dilemma… a new idea brought life! What if we approached the Minnesota Timberwolves? With the NBA season just weeks away, what could it hurt…. maybe they would considering giving away the wedding package sometime during the season? We contacted Timberwolves Community Relations Manager, Sarah Haugen, and Director of Premium Seating, Britt Carlson, and they loved hearing about the Big Trade Up! Following a meeting full of exciting ideas, we had the thrill of meeting star-forward #42 Kevin Love (6’ 10”, 250 lbs) who on behalf of the Timberwolves made us this jaw-dropping offer…
The Minnesota Timberwolves package includes Executive Suite #45 and 22 complimentary tickets to all 43 Minnesota Timberwolves games and all 17 Minnesota Lynx games. In addition to an entire season in this newly renovated suite, the package includes 12 family memberships to LifeTime Fitness. Other perks of the package include a one-time VIP pre-game bench seat or post-game meet & greet with members of the team as well as priority invitations to Premium Seating events throughout the year. This incredible package is valued just shy of $100,000, which is a especially humbling considering our start with a #2 pencil.
With preseason underway, excitement is building for the October 27th Timberwolves season tip-off! We are thrilled to have the Wolves’ generous support of the Big Trade Up and Mind The Future. Their ongoing commitment to countless charities throughout the Twin Cities is both admirable and greatly appreciated. With that said, please join us in thanking the Timberwolves and the Lynx with your fan support!
If your company is a prospect for the Timberwolves season package, please let us know. Either way, stay tuned as the Timberwolves will be announcing their plans for The “Big” Wedding Package soon!
