Update: This SPG Moment is now sold out. If you purchased a package we look forward to seeing you in December!

SPG Moments are one of the best ways to take advantage of your valuable Starpoints for tickets to unique, one-of-a-kind experiences that you oftentimes can’t buy. While you could spend your Starpoints on anything from cultural to music and even sporting events, there’s a new SPG Moment up for grabs — two tickets to the second annual TPG Holiday Soireé.

This year’s event is going to be bigger and better than last year’s, which is going to be hard to top. This time around, there will be an intimate performance by GRAMMY-nominated artist Gavin DeGraw and Nobel Peace Prize winner Rigoberta Menchú Tum will be the honorary guest. So, we’re excited to invite you to be there for all the action through SPG Moments — and the best part of all, all of the Starpoints redeemed for this event will be donated directly to Points for Peace and PeaceJam.


As of today, you can lock in your two tickets to the TPG Holiday Soirée on the SPG Moments website. The two tickets will cost you 10,000 Starpoints — worth about $270 based on TPG’s most recent valuations — and will get you not only access to the event, but you’ll also be able to meet and get your picture taken with TPG himself and Gavin Degraw. In addition, there will be cocktails and hors d’oeuvres throughout the night, and you’ll get to rub shoulders with some of the premier influencers in the industry and other TPG readers. Plus, all of the redeemed Starpoints are going to an amazing cause.

Here are the full details for the second annual TPG Holiday Soirée:

  • When: Tuesday, December 6 — 7:30pm
  • Where: The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, New York

For your chance to get one of the 10 sets of tickets we’re giving away, head to the SPG Moments page. This party is sure to be one for the books — when else can you hang out with other points and miles enthusiasts with a private performance by Gavin DeGraw and an appearance by a Nobel Peace Prize winner? We hope to see you there!
