The event on 17 May is in aid of Brad's charity Make It Right, which builds homes and communities for people in need, and the winners will fly to New Orleans and stay for three nights in a suite at the W Hotel.

They will be given VIP guest passes for the night at The Sugar Mill, with only 10 places available across the world, one of which will be from a free prize draw.
