Many of you remember the successful raffle of a 2013 Model S last year to benefit programs of the Garfield High School PTSA in Seattle. Well, another raffle is now planned for March 14, 2014. Here is the (slightly edited) notice I received, with contact information for Phil Sherburne, from whom you can buy raffle tickets and volunteer to show your car at one of the ticket sales events. You can support a worthy cause and maybe win yourself another Model S!
Thank you for having purchased tickets last year for the Tesla Raffle of Garfield High School. The raffle was a great success and raised $75,000 for Garfield programs. This year we are repeating the raffle with the first prize being the very exciting 2014 Tesla S Sedan Electric car (or $50,000 cash). The winner last year thought she would take the cash rather than the car. When I showed her the car she was stunned and immediately changed her mind. She loves the car.
The need for funds to support Garfield students continues. The PTSA raises money to support the extra-curricular programs, supplemental intervention programs to assist underachieving students and career and college counseling services to help kids find a positive path for their post high school life. We hope that at some point public school funding will get back to a reasonable level and these programs won’t have to be funded through donations.
This 2014 Tesla S Sedan was Automobile Magazine and Motor Trend’s Car of the Year. This is the breakthrough electric car with a range of approximately 265 miles on a single charge. It also received the highest safety rating for automobiles. Information on the car is attached and more can be found at www.teslamotors.com. We are selling 1850 raffle tickets at $100 each, making the odds of winning much better than most raffles. On Friday, March 14, at the Garfield annual PTSA Auction/Gala, the winning ticket will be drawn. You don’t have to be present to win. If you win you can take either the car or $50,000 in a certified check.
This year tickets will be drawn for three additional prizes--$1500, $1000, and $500 certified checks. But you do have to be present to win one of these prizes. The Auction/Gala will be at the Showbox Sodo, 1700 1st Avenue S, 6pm-11pm. The drawing will be at approximately 9:30 pm. A separate ticket is required for admission to the Auction/Gala—a very fun event. People who went last year uniformly praised the new format which included performances by students from Garfield’s outstanding music program. You can purchase tickets to the auction on the Garfield PTSA website.
I don’t know if you still have interest in trying to win a Tesla, but it is an amazing car and the proceeds go to a very important cause. If you would like to buy one or more tickets or know of others who would please contact me know.
Thanks, Phil Sherburne, (firstname.lastname@example.org) or 206-355-0834
