Six local car dealerships are partnering to help raise funds for more than a dozen Central Coast schools.
The 2017 Support Our Schools Central Coast Car Raffle seeks to offset the impact of budget cuts on local schools by raffling off five new vehicles or $15,000 in prize money.
Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at participating schools. All public and private schools from San Luis Obispo to the Santa Ynez Valley are eligible to participate. Proceeds will go directly to the school that sells the ticket, with an additional $500 to the school that sells a winning ticket.
Over the last 12 years, the annual raffle has raised more than $1.2 million for Central Coast schools.
Participants must be over 18 years old, be a legal U.S. resident, have a valid driver's license and Social Security number to participate. Raffle tickets sales end Thursday. The drawing will be held at 6:30 p.m. Dec. 7 at Honda of Santa Maria, 2175 S. Bradley Road in Santa Maria.
