INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Nov. 24, 2014) – You might remember "The Golden Ticket" from “Willie “Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Now, there's a golden ticket opportunity right here in our area.

The winner won't be touring a chocolate factory -- they'll get seats to some of the biggest sporting events in our state.

“We know that someone around the holidays is going to be very popular with their friends and family,” said John Dedman, vice president of communications at Indy Sports Corp.

That popular person will be the winner of "The Golden Ticket,” a prize package with four tickets to 18 different sporting events:

Indianapolis Colts Regular Season Game, Notre Dame Football Home Game, Big Ten Football Championship Game (VIP Package), Indiana Pacers Regular Season Game, Indianapolis Motor Speedway Race Package (Grand Prix, Indianapolis 500, Brickyard 400, Moto GP), P&G Gymnastics Championships, Indiana Fever Regular Season Game, Indiana Univ.

Entering the raffle costs $100 and 500 tickets will be sold.

“What we do, day in and day out, is try to showcase Indiana to the world, and we do that through sporting events here," Dedman said.

"We have The Big 10 Football Championship Game coming here in December, that's a $15 million dollar direct visitor spend impact for our community. The Final Four will be back here in Indianapolis for the 7th time and we recently were awarded an 8th one of those in 2021, and that’s between a $45 to $60 million dollar impact in terms of the visitor spending," he said.

"Indiana Sports Corp is a not-for-profit, so this is an opportunity for us to fundraise, to be able to support the events that come here to town, but also a number of youth initiatives that come through as well."
