Money raised through the Omaze raffle will benefit the Motion Picture & Television Fund.
Phantom Thread costume designer Mark Bridges won more than an Oscar during the 2018 Academy Awards. Because he managed to have the shortest acceptance speech of the night, host Jimmy Kimmel awarded him a 2018 Kawasaki Ultra 310LX Jet Ski.
The jet ski is now up for donation on Omaze.com. The money raised through the campaign will benefit the Motion Picture & Television Fund (MPTF). The organization provides support and services for current and retired members that work in the entertainment industry. The donations will specifically benefit the “We All Play Our Part” campaign, which supports both financial and social safety nets for members of the community.
Those interested in winning the jet ski ridden by Bridges (and Helen Mirren) during the awards show can donate anywhere from $10 to $5,000. The amount of money donated will determine how many raffle entries you receive. Omaze will randomly select the winner.
After you submit your donation, you will have the chance to spin a wheel to win additional entries, merchandise or a $1,000 prize. The deadline to enter the campaign is April 26 and you must be at least 13 years old to enter.
