RICHMOND, Ky. – The Eastern Kentucky University football program will host two events for fans and supporters on the day before the annual Maroon & White Game.

The EKU Football Golf Outing sponsored by the EKU Worn Cleat Club will be held on Friday, April 5.  The golf outing will take place at Boone’s Trace National Golf Club and is $100 per golfer.  Registration will begin at 11 a.m. with a shotgun start at noon.  There will be an awards presentation at 5 p.m.

The 10th Annual EKU Football Reverse Raffle will be held on Friday, April 5 at Boone’s Trace National Golf Club as well.  The reverse raffle will start at 6 p.m and is $100 per entry.  Fans will have the opportunity to win $10,000.  In the past, the event sold out of the maximum 250 tickets allowed, so make sure you reserve your ticket early.

The program was able to raise $15,000 last year, which helped pay for spring recruiting, facility upgrades, player gear, and more.

Fans do not need to be present at the event to win.

To purchase tickets, please visit  Your ticket will be mailed to you (or held at door if received after April 1).  Please direct questions to Karl Park at 859-200-6686 or
