Austin YES is excited to announce our 2020 Drive Away for Education Truck Raffle will take place June 1 – August 2, 2020. Each year, our team looks forward to putting on this raffle to raise funds for our mission of providing free school supply kits to Title 1 elementary schools in the community and to give one lucky winner the chance to win a new truck!
Raffle winners will be offered the chance to choose between five different vehicle options in partnership with the Ancira Auto Group and presented by Thomas J. Henry. Participants can purchase one ticket for $25, three tickets for $50, or ten tickets for $100. The raffle will close on Sunday, August 2 at 11:59 p.m. and the winner will be announced on Facebook on Wednesday, August 5, 2020.
Vehicle Options Include:
- 2020 Nissan Titan S Crew Cab
- 2020 Chevrolet Silverado Crew Cab
- 2020 Ford F150 Super Crew 4×4
- 2020 RAM 1500 Lone Star Crew Cab
- 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 Double Cab Standard Box Elevation
This year, we will also host our first-ever SA YES and Austin YES Online Auction. Our annual Taste of Education Dinner, which raises more than $300,000, was canceled due to COVID-19. Consequently, Austin YES transitioned to an online auction that will offer a variety of exciting items to bid on including TVs, iPads, gift cards, getaways, and more, that you can easily browse through at our SA YES and Austin YES Online Auction & Truck Raffle site.
All proceeds will directly benefit Austin YES and SA YES’ Back to Basics school supply distribution for the 2020-2021 school year. Austin YES hopes to raise $200,000 combined to support our efforts and greatly appreciates any contributions at this time.
