SPORTS | "Golden Ticket" Raffle Taking Place

04/11/2017 06:09 PM

The Louisville Sports Commission is holding its “Golden Ticket” raffle.

This is the sixth year that the Commission has held the event.

The “Golden Ticket” raffle is essentially a chance for you to attend some of the biggest sporting events across the Bluegrass.

Should your winning ticket be drawn on April 25, you will receive two tickets to every 2017-2018 home football and basketball game at either UofL or UK, depending on which school you want to see.

You will also get two tickets to the following events:

  • 2017 Kentucky Oaks
  • 2017 Kentucky Derby
  • 2017 Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway
  • 2017 Louisville Bats season home games
  • 2017-2018 UofL women’s basketball regular season home games
  • 2018 Paul Hornung Award Banquet

The money raised helps the Commission try and bring more sporting events to the Louisville-area.

Karl Schmitt, Louisville Sports Commission President and CEO, stopped by Sports Night on Tuesday. He spoke with Andrew Chernoff about the raffle:

Each ticket costs $100 and a total of 400 of them will be sold.

To purchase tickets, you can visit or call 502-587-6742.
