United Way Jackpot Extravaganza

Like so many events in 2020, the United Way of Paducah-McCracken County's biggest fundraiser of the year is different this go-round. The United Way's Jackpot Extravaganza is going virtual! 

Each ticket for the Jackpot Extravaganza is a chance to win, and all ticket sales support the United Way and 15 local agencies. Only one winner will be chosen. If between one and 1,999 tickets are sold, the grand prize is $5,000. If 2,000 or more tickets are sold, the grand prize will increase to $10,000! 

WPSD Local 6 will bring you live coverage of the ticket drawing at 5 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 11.
