Sportsmen’s Saturday, sponsored by the Wake Forest Baptist Health Lexington Medical Center Foundation, has become a premiere event for sporting enthusiasts from across the southeast. For $100, participants can purchase a ticket that offers the chance at a prize purse worth over $100,000. This year, 2,000 tickets are up for grabs and participants can not only purchase their tickets from representatives, but also purchase online.
The 2016 Sportsmen's Saturday event is scheduled for October 29 at the historic Railroad Depot at 129 S. Railroad Street in uptown Lexington.
A special “early bird” incentive makes it a priority to buy a ticket early. Early bird ticket holders are eligible for drawings for cash prizes including one $5,000 prize, one $2,000 prize and three $1,000 prizes. Early bird tickets are re-entered into the drawing for the main prizes which include a truck, pontoon, a Harley Davidson motorcycle and much more. Historically, all tickets have sold by the early bird ticket purchase deadline in mid-September.
It’s a fun, fast-paced event that features food, beverages, and entertainment in addition to fabulous prizes. Close to a thousand people attend the event, but ticket holders do not have to be present to win.
Past Sportsmen’s Saturday events raised about $600,000 for vital services at Lexington Medical Center including the expansion of rehabilitation services, the emergency department, and additional physician offices.
“The public has made the event successful,” said Ellen Welborn, Foundation Executive Director. “We couldn’t do it without the support of our ticket purchaser and sponsors.”
