    Week 17 of last year, my family and I attended a barbecue/meet and greet called "The Bill Bates Experience." There, I won a trivia/ embarrassing acts in public contest in which I was told that I won two tickets to the first home game of the 2014 season. They took my information and told me that they'd keep in contact. Since then, I've been trying to contact them with no success. I'm pretty pissed and don't know what else to do other than ask my fellow Cowboys fans on this forum. Not sure if I'm going to get in trouble for posting this but does anyone have any information on who runs this? I hope you can understand my agitation towards the situation.
    If I'm premature with my anger, I apologize, but if they are purposely not responding, shame on them.
    If I'm wrong for posting this, I am truly sorry!
    Thank you my fellow Cowboys fans!!

    Can't you look up the foundation online? It's a charity so shouldn't be public info? I am surprised you didn't get some kind of receipt or something. That would've been my first red flag. I would've asked for something that states what I won. Sounds like there is a major error here I hope it gets worked out. Did you have to pay any money?

    Sounds like one of those charitable scams.

    You probably should have asked if the "experience" was before or after he retired.

    What was the address where the event was held? What specific weekday was it during Week 17? Did any local media attend? Were there any catering vendors parked nearby? More details would be helpful.

    Yes, that's why I put the link up for him as it was the closest thing to "the Bill Bates Experience" I found.....

    Did you win tickets to the first game? Or tickets to the first Bill Bates Ultimate Tailgate of the 2014 season?
