Alan Mayne grew up in Madison, WI watching Brett Favre's Hall of Fame career unfold. So it was fitting when he got the call letting him know that he had won a VIP trip to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, OH to experience to attend the 2016 enshrinement ceremony celebrating Favre's accomplishments. Alan brought his friend, Nate Sands, to share in the experience.
"To say it was the best weekend of our lives would be an understatement," said Mayne. "To be able to see my lifetime idol enshrined in the Hall of Fame was beyond my wildest dreams. The whole weekend was just incredible."
The experience was provided by Omaze and the NFL Foundation with net proceeds going directly to the NFL Foundation.
The two took in everything that makes Hall of Fame week great. From exclusive access to the Gold Jacket Enshrinement Ceremony, where the iconic class received their jackets to tickets to the Tim McGraw Concert for Legends and watching Favre's historic induction speech. They even got the chance to step on to the field pre-game and see Favre up close as the new class was introduced to the fans in Canton.
"We did everything. We couldn't have asked for more, or had more fun. It really was the trip of a lifetime."
