BRISTOL, Va. (WJHL) — The Birthplace of Country Music (BCM) on Wednesday announced what is in store for its fourth annual Bristol Sessions Super Raffle, which benefits the Birthplace of Country Music Museum.
Participants of the raffle have a chance to win $250,000 in cash and prizes in the Sept. 11 drawing. There are only 5,000 tickets, priced at $100 each, with ticket sales now open. Each ticket has two raffle numbers. There is also a buy-ten-get-one-free promotion.
The 49 prizes include a 2022 Ford Maverick, 2022 Kia Sportage LX, 2022 Nissan Rouge, 2022 Jeep Renegade, an Indian Scout Bobber 60 motorcycle, a Sandals all-expenses-paid vacation package and more — plus over $70,000 in cash prizes.
“Proceeds from the Bristol Sessions Super Raffle go toward operating funds and educational programming and outreach for the museum,” said BCM Executive Director of Advancement Leah Ross. “It is our goal to keep educational programming at the museum low or no cost for the community, and proceeds from the raffle are essential in helping us achieve that.”
The drawing will launch on Sept. 11 at 12-4 p.m. outside the Birthplace of Country Music Museum during the 21st annual Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion music festival, with a winner drawn every five minutes during the four-hour event.
Winners do not have to be present at the drawing to win; winners will be notified by phone, text or email as well as listed here on the Super Raffle website.
