Golden Tickets (Sponsored by Delta Dental)

Delta Dental will be Making Smiles Happen with $30,000 in Golden Tickets on September 14. Every hour of the 24-hour give day plus six extra times during the midday nonprofit rally, a lucky donation will be randomly selected to receive a Golden Ticket and $1,000 will be added to the donation. That means a donation as little as $10 can become $1,010! A great incentive to donate and a great bonus to the nonprofits. For each drawing, the Community Foundation of Louisville will select a donation from all donations received during that hour, using a random number generator. Community Foundation staff will announce the winning nonprofits and donors on social media channels throughout the day.

*Organizations cannot win more than one Golden Ticket throughout the day. Organizations must be present at the midday nonprofit rally to win one of the six designated Golden Tickets awarded during that timeframe.
