On Friday, August 16th, the United Way of Paducah-McCracken County hosted the 10th Annual Jackpot Elimination Dinner with Veolia as the Presenting Sponsor. Throughout the night, tickets were drawn and eliminated from winning the grand prize of $5,000. When only five tickets remained, those five individuals had the chance to split the pot or keep going in order to be the sole winner of the $5,000 grand prize! The last five people standing did not agree to split, so the drawing continued until the final four decided to split the pot. There was also a silent auction, live auction, games and 50/50 raffle throughout the event.
This fun event began with dinner at 6:30 p.m. at Walker Hall Events Center located at 229 Madison Street in Paducah. The drawing began at 7:30 p.m. Individual ticket bundles were $100 and included dinner for two and one chance to win $5,000. Corporate table sponsorships were $750. Table sponsors received a reserved table with seating for ten, dinner for ten guests, ten glasses of complimentary wine or beer, and five chances to win the $5,000!
