Thank you to all those who supported this year’s car raffle. In 2016, we raffled a 2017 Toyota Corolla LE. We sold over 700 tickets, translating to $15,000 after the cost of the car. With our matching grant funds from the County that means we raised $30,000 additional funds to distribute to our wonderful local arts and humanities organizations.
The winning ticket, drawn by Adeptus Partners LLC at the Ball was Ticket #846 purchased by Nick Wineriter. The winning ticket was sold by Friends of the Library Montgomery County. Our winner is an avid reader and library lover who bought a single ticket online. Congratulations, Nick!
We are already doing some planning for next year’s Executive’s Ball. Mark your calendars for Sunday, December 3, 2017. The Raffle plans have not been finalized yet, but we will post it here when we have the details.
Thank you again for your support!
How can your raffle ticket purchase can support your favorite arts/humanities organization? Here’s how:
For every raffle ticket purchased from one of the organizations listed below or on its behalf, half of each ticket price ($25) goes directly to that organization. This year, thanks the matching grant we have, that organization will receive another $25. This means that for every $50 ticket you purchase on behalf of your favorite arts or humanities organization, it will receive $50 back!
For example, if you purchase two (2) tickets at $50 each for $100 from an organization that organization will receive $100 back as a grant ($50 from the Ball, and $50 from our matching grant). It adds up fast–so please consider supporting your favorite organization by buying raffle tickets.
For the 2016 Car Raffle, the Executive’s Ball is proud to offer a 2017 Toyota Corolla LE. We are delighted to partner with Fitzgerald Lakeforest Toyota to present the 2017 Toyota Corolla. Accounting services provided by Adeptus Partners, LLC. Thank you to both of our partners for their assistance!
The drawing for the car will take place at the Ball on December 4th but you do not need to be present to win.
