LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — A raffle to win a picnic table created by the old bleachers from Rupp Arena begins July 15 and runs through July 31.

Since 1976, the bleachers in Rupp have served as a home to four national championship teams and six other teams that have advanced to the Final Four.

There have been thirteen seasons where Kentucky has gone undefeated.

The bleachers were present during three Southeastern Conference Tournaments, the 1985 Final Four National Championship, the 1986 NCAA Women's Final Four National Championship and 18 Kentucky High School Athletic Association Sweet 16 Championships.

The bleachers were also there during concerts from Elton John, Billy Joel and Tim McGraw.

For every $10 that someone donates to Arbor Youth Services, they are entered to win the picnic table.

The picnic table will come with a letter of authenticity.

Donations can be made here.
