In order to be able to provide free music and entertainment, Golden Lions are selling raffle tickets. Proceeds from ticket sales are used for the most part to fund the event, and any excess goes back into community betterment projects. It is also a way for the community to support the Lions and what they do to make Golden a great place to live, from building the public restroom on 12th Street to dugouts at Ulysses Park and awarding scholarships to seniors at Golden High School. For $5 each or five tickets for twenty dollars, you get a chance to win one of a number prizes including a grand prize of $1000 donated by the Lions Club. Also, the tickets are printed with coupons that can be used for discounts with local merchants. You don't have to be present to win. Winners are announced throughout the day with the grand-prize winner before the end of the festival.
