This time, a winner and their guest will have tea time with Benedict Cumberbatch and receive tickets to Avengers: Infinity War while watching it with the cast.
Dr. Strange has teamed up with GEANCO who want to increase opportunity in Africa with contributions to the health and education of Nigerians. Donations will go to scholarships for young female victims of terrorism and gender discrimination, orthopedic surgeries, and caretaking and child-rearing health programs for mothers, according to Omaze.
Cumberbatch first hit it off with Sherlock Holmes on the BBC. His resume includes spectacular roles such as Khan in Star Trek Into Darkness (2013), Smaug and the Necromancer in The Hobbit films (2012, 2013, 2014), and as the Avenger Dr. Stephen Strange in Doctor Strange (2016) by Marvel, according to Interview Magazine.
This contest is definitely one you want to enter since the movie is going to be the whole Marvel Universe in a knockout, drag down fight, and if you win, you’ll be one of the first to view and talk about it. Also, meeting the charming Benedict Cumberbatch is a plus, and you’ll get to talk to the genius talent while enjoying a real English tea experience.
