Recently, fans had the opportunity to enter the State Farm®**Raiders Homecoming Fan Experience contest. Jennifer Jones, winner of the contest, received four lower level 50-yard line tickets, four VIP sideline passes, two autographed items, and the chance to throw out the first pass to safety Tyvon Branch.
Jones was made aware of the contest on the Raiders official Facebook page and decided to enter. When she was informed she was the winner, Jones couldn't believe it. "It was kind of surreal," said Jones. "I didn't really believe it. I was in shock."
The long-time Raiders fan brought her daughter, Nevaeh, to experience pre-game from the sideline. "It's really exciting. I'm glad I get to share it with my daughter. She's really excited," said Jones.
Jones also gave Nevaeh the opportunity to throw out the first pass. Nevaeh was nervous before the pass to Branch, but also thought the experience was, in her words, "pretty cool."
After the pre-game festivities, Jones and her daughter, along with two other guests, enjoyed the Raiders final game of the season.
