JA Pittsburgh's Golden Ticket – Sports Raffle

three rivers JA Golf Championship
When: April 1, 2020; 8:00 am - August  27, 2020; 6:30 pm  
July 1, 2020 - NEW! Special Prize Option Announcement: 

We know and understand that COVID-19 has generated far more questions than answers, especially when it comes to how sports will be affected this upcoming season.

Due to this uncertainty, we at Junior Achievement understand that some may not feel comfortable returning to sporting events, whether that be this season or next. For that reason, we have decided to add a $10,000 cash prize option to the already ongoing 2020 Pittsburgh's Golden Ticket Raffle.

So, how does this work?

If your ticket number hits on the PA Pick Four lottery on August 27th, 2020, at 7 PM, or if Junior Achievement has to choose at random for the winning ticket, you will be contacted by phone and email and asked to determine which option you would like to collect.

If you already purchased tickets, then you do not have to do anything at this time. Junior Achievement will mail you your new raffle ticket(s) with the same ticket number(s) that you were sent previously. On the new ticket, you will see the additional prize option listed as well as the disclaimer on the back that reflects this change. 

The prize is still the same, except you now have a choice between two prizes!

Prize option #1: $10,000 in cash

Prize option #2: TWO regular season tickets to the following teams:

  • Steelers

  • Pirates
  • Penguins
  • Pitt Football and Men's Basketball
  • Penn State Football (+ Parking Pass)
  • Washington Wild Things
  • Pittsburgh Riverhounds
  • Duquesne Men's and Women's Basketball
  • Robert Morris Basketball, Ice Hockey and Football

A limited number of tickets will be sold. Tickets and events are subject to change. Drawing will be held on August 27, 2020 at 7:00 pm, location to be announced. The drawing is based on the PA Lottery Big 4 evening drawing. Winner need not be present to win. In the event that the Big Four number does not correspond to a purchased ticket, a winner will be drawn randomly on site. You must be 18 years of age or older and must qualify under Pennsylvania law to purchase a raffle ticket and participate in this raffle. Winner shall have the option of selecting either a cash prize or season tickets.  The season ticket prize excludes special games and playoffs. Any canceled or postponed games (including without limitation, any games affected by a dispute between any league and its players, including a lock-out, pandemic or epidemic or otherwise) will not be included in the prize and no refunds or credits for any such canceled or postponed games will be issued to winner. The prize winner is solely responsible for any taxes on their respective prize. All ticket sale proceeds support Junior Achievement's K-12 grade programs.
