If you’re going to go anywhere, you’d better do it boldly. That’s just a fact about going. Grammatically speaking, you can split all the infinitives you want as long as boldness is involved. Boldly going is turning 50 this year with the anniversary of the maiden voyage of the Starship Enterprise and the premiere of Star Trek. It’s also very fitting that the 13th film in the franchise, Star Trek Beyond, should also be on the way this summer. And if you want to boldly go to the premiere in San Diego and schmooze the cast, this is your year.
Omaze–the fundraising site that offers aid to dozens of different charities and supplies amazing prizes to donors–is offering a lucky Trekkie and a friend the Star Trek-studded chance of a lifetime. By donating to their campaign, you’ll get a chance to win a trip for two to San Diego to attend the premiere of Star Trek Beyond, walk the red carpet, and hang out at the after party and meet the cast and crew. Flights and room at a 4-star hotel are included. Unless you already live in San Diego, of course.
This campaign is to benefit the Mission Continues, which helps veterans who are adjusting to life back home through community impact by deploying them to inspire younger generations to serve. You can’t go much bolder than that, and helping good causes will make you go bolder, too.
There are many perks you can get just for donating, from pins to t-shirts to wood or metal film stills, and even replica props from the film. So you’ll get cool swag anyway, but you can ALSO get chances to win the grand prize. See? To learn more and to see all the specific benefits, go to Omaze’s campaign page.
Helping people, winning prizes, meeting Star Trek personnel…you can’t go much bolder than that!
Do Star Trek‘s transporters turn you into a different person?
