2019 Drive Away for Education Raised Over $46K

 

We are overjoyed to share that our 2019 Drive Away for Education Truck Raffle raised $46,825!  Each year, our team looks forward to putting on this raffle to raise funds for Title 1 elementary students and to give one lucky winner the chance to win a new vehicle! 

 This year, the prize was a 2019 Ford F-150 XL truck provided by our incredible sponsor, Thomas J. Henry. The raffle closed Sunday, August 11 and sold a total of 1,596 tickets resulting in the campaign’s record-setting funds. 

During a drawing on CBS Austin Thursday, August 15, Anya was selected as the 2019 winner and will be picking up her brand new truck this month – stay tuned for photos! We are extremely humbled by the funds we were able to raise by this year’s Drive Away for Education Truck Raffle and could not have done it without the generous support of the community. Our mission to provide school supplies to Title 1 elementary students is one that we proudly take on every year and look forward to continuing to grow. 

 All funds raised from the raffle will benefit our Back to Basics school supply distribution which takes place every year throughout the entire month of August.
