DANVILLE (WSLS 10) - If you haven't already bought your turkey for Thanksgiving, the Danville YMCA is giving you a chance to win one.

Registration is now open for the organization's first-ever Turkey Free-throw Shootout.

Registration is $2, which will give you 10 free-throw attempts.

People will be divided into three groups; men, women, and staff.

If you make all 10 free throws, you'll keep going until you miss and the winner of each group will get a turkey.

Patrick Ratliff, the Y's membership director, said he wanted to create an event that would bring members together with the rest of the community.

"I would like everybody to come in and combine. We'll use all the proceeds to go to our scholarships, so I feel like this type of event is something that is needed here in Danville," Ratliff explained.

The contest will be held from 12 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, November 19.
