Dreams of fans around the world may just come true as e-commerce site Groupon offers the chance to meet Brad Pitt. The deal-of-the-day website is offering a US holiday package at a staggering £15,000, with the main attraction not being the Statue of Liberty or Mount Rushmore but the ‘Oceans Thirteen’ heartthrob.
Aside from a brief meeting with the actor, people availing this offer will also get tickets to an after-party featuring performances by platinum-selling artists Kings of Leon and Bruno Mars.
Discount website Groupon and Pitt’s charitable foundation ‘Make It Right’, which shelters the homeless in environmental-friendly homes; have come up with an ‘Epic Deal’ package that will include a three-night trip and a visit to the Make It Right foundation facility in New Orleans, Louisiana.
The three-night trip will commence May 16, 2014. Travelers will be flown First Class from the UK to Armstrong International Airport in New Orleans. Their stay is booked at the W Hotel in close proximity to the city’s most popular historic monument — the French Quarter.
They will also be provided two tickets to the Make It Right gala and after party where they will have the opportunity to meet Pitt while sipping cocktails and swaying to Jazz music.
The event is being held to raise money to build high-quality homes for those in need including victims of Hurricane Katrina, disabled veterans in New Jersey, children who left abusive foster homes in Kansas City, and the Native Americans on Fort Peck Reservation in Montana.
