4 Reasons Why You Should Buy Your GREAT BIG GIVEAWAY Raffle Tickets (and soon!)

Have you heard?!? It’s time again for Downtown Lynchburg’s Great Big Giveaway raffle, returning for the second year with even more fabulous prizes! Yep, we are talking $1,000 CASH, my friend. Shout out to Your Community Credit Union for making that happen!


And if we haven’t yet convinced you, here are four undeniable reasons why you should get your tickets (and soon!).

1. The prizes are INCREDIBLE 

We mean it guys...the prizes this year are insane. $1,000 CASH prize (like, cold hard cash, y’all), a TREK mountain bike from Bikes Unlimited, season tickets for two from the Academy Center of the Arts (approximately a $1,200 value), a trip to Downtown Bristol (includes two night stay at The Bristol Hotel, two tickets to your choice of show at Paramount Bristol, and a Birthplace of Country Music Prize Pack), an Oyster Party for 10 at The Water Dog, and SO MUCH MORE. This list is merely the tip of the iceberg, friends. If you’re ready, click to get your tickets >

2. Early Bird Drawings (more chances to win!)

Want even more chances to win sweet prizes? Consider our Early Bird drawings a BONUS because even if you win one, you are still eligible to win the grand prizes.

That’s right…you could in $100 cash or a Glass House Prize Pack AND STILL be in the running for, say, two tickets to Lockn’! The catch? You just have to purchase your raffle tickets before we draw for the Early Bird prizes on August 2 and August 7. It’s that simple. Can’t wait any longer? Click here to get your tickets >

3. celebrate your win with a glass of rose

We’ll be teaming up with the great people at The Glass House to draw our Grand Prize winners on August 15 during Rosé Thursday. What’s that, you ask? If you haven’t heard, it’s the place to be to start your weekend a day early - half-off bottles of rosé, charcuterie boards, indoor/outdoor seating, live music, and NO admission fee.


4. Support Downtown Lynchburg Association 

All raffle proceeds support Downtown Lynchburg Association, which means when you buy raffle tickets, YOU become a crucial part of our mission; to create a strong, vibrant, and welcoming downtown with a unique and historic character through downtown improvement projects, marketing initiatives, cultural events, business engagement programs, and more. So, if you stay up to date with downtown happenings through our events calendar, have seen the latest awesome shop on our Instagram page, or have hung out in our Pocket Park lately, then you should also grab a raffle ticket (or three) to keep supporting what we do!


Here’s the thing, y’all. There are only 1,000 raffle tickets available, so act quickly! Raffle tickets are $20 apiece or 3 for $50 (which triples your chance of winning!). Remember, if you buy before August 2nd, you are also eligible to win at the Early Bird drawings. You can purchase your tickets below! See you at the drawing!
