The Kentucky Derby Raffle is one of the largest events the SSHBA hosts. For the 200 people attending in past years, the event is always very exciting, businesses flourish with many new found relationships and its most definitely full of good, old fashion “fun”.
This year’s event promises to be better than ever. The Kentucky Derby Raffle will be held on Friday, April 29th, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Harrah’s Casino in Joliet, IL. The Grand Prize this year is $2,500 (based on a minimum of 250 tickets sold).
An $85 ticket entitles the holder to a chance at the $2,500 prize, buffet, and open bar for 3 hours. This event has proven itself, year after year, to be a serious, networking opportunity to expand your business.
Returning this year, you again can race a wooden horse! Paint/decorate it yourself or sponsor a pre-decorated horse to be “raced” that night! Call our office ASAP for details and to get your name on the list as we need to get the horses to sponsors very soon! Spectators will “bet” on horses to win by purchasing raffle tickets to which can be used to win any of our amazing raffle prizes. New this year, buy raffle tickets in advance. For $20 you can have a “horse leg” length of tickets waiting for you at registration!
We are in need of a few more sponsors for our event as well. Please check out the flyer below and let us know if you are willing to help!
Last but not least, there will again be a contest for ladies’ best hat and men’s best dressed. The winner in each category will win $50 so start putting together your best Derby outfit!!
