Tickets are now on sale for the annual Sportsmen’s Saturday, sponsored by the Wake Forest Baptist Health Lexington Medical Center Foundation.

Purchase Sportsmen's Saturday Tickets

Only 2,200 tickets are available with sales underway at area businesses and the Foundation Office at Lexington Medical Center. “Early bird” tickets or those tickets purchased by September 10, are eligible for special cash drawings in addition to the main drawings. Tickets for past Sportsmen’s Saturday events have sold out by the “early bird” deadline.

“Early bird” ticket holders have a chance to win cash prizes of $5,000, $2,000 or three drawings for $1,000 each. These tickets will be reentered into drawings for spectacular prizes including a 2018 Harley Davidson Low Rider, a 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 4 x 4, a Kubota RTV 400, a 2018 Avalon Pontoon, a Field & Stream Kayak Package, 54” Zero Raptor Lawn Mower and more.

Additionally, the event features several live auction items. Richard Childress, honorary event chairperson, provides two tickets to the 2019 Cup Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway with pit and suite passes. Other Live Auction items include Carolina Panther Tickets, Davidson County Wine Tour, Old North State Weekend to name a few.          

Tickets cost $100 and are available at various locations in Lexington, Salisbury and Denton. For more information, call the Foundation Office at 336-238-4559 or visit

All proceeds from the event will benefit the New Surgical Facility at WFBH Lexington Medical Center. 

Guest tickets are available for $25.00.

“There is a tremendous benefit to have a New Surgical Facility here in Lexington,” said Sara DeLapp, Chair of the LMC Foundation Board of Directors. “The current operating rooms have served the community well for nearly 40 years, but with the advances that have been made in surgical space and technology, it is time to provide the patients and medical staff with the newest and best equipment and technology. Sportsmen’s Saturday provides an opportunity to make a significant impact in generating funds for this project.” 

Sportsmen’s Saturday has raised over $1.2 million dollars and this money has been used to assist with the expansion of Rehabilitation Services, the Emergency Department, Cancer Center and various LMC departmental equipment needs.

“The public has made the event successful,” said Ellen Welborn, Foundation Executive Director. “We could not do it without the support of the ticket purchasers and the champions and sponsors.”  

Doors will open at 11 a.m. on November 3 and drawings for “Early Bird” prizes begin at noon. The main drawings will begin shortly after Early Bird tickets are drawn out and continue until 3 p.m.  Additionally, the event features food, beverages and entertainment.
