Special Olympics Missouri Launches “Drive It Home Raffle” for Opportunity to Win 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport 4×4

Missouri Automobile Dealers Association and the Law Enforcement Torch Run are partners in statewide raffle that runs until Oct. 1, 2019 to support SOMO athletes

July 10, 2019 (St. Louis) – Special Olympics Missouri (SOMO) in partnership with the Missouri Automobile Dealers Association (MADA) and the Law Enforcement Torch Run recently announced the launch of its annual Drive It Home raffle where the winning recipient has an opportunity to win a 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport 4×4 or $500. MADA donated the Jeep Wrangler.

Doug Smith, MADA president, said, “We value and are honored to partner with SOMO.  Their work is seen throughout the entire state and at every level to offer athletes of all ages the opportunity to build self-confidence, become healthier by being active and strong, and learning how to achieve personal goals.”

The goal for raffle sales this year is $150,000. Each individual raffle ticket costs $5.00 and can be purchased online, or from individuals, teams and organizations who have volunteered to sell tickets. All raffle tickets must be purchased by Oct. 1, 2019, and the grand prize giveaway is Oct. 19. To purchase tickets and learn more about the raffle, please click on the following link, https://somo.org/win

“All proceeds from the Drive It Home raffle ticket sales benefit more than 16,400 SOMO athletes who participate annually in statewide competitions, and activities. Fundraisers like this are critical to our success to offer the best programming and services available to Missourians with intellectual disabilities,” said Susan Stegeman, SOMO President and CEO.

A tornado hit Jefferson City, MO, on May 22 leaving extensive damage to the region. The Training for Life Campus incurred structural loss from the tornado forcing SOMO to close the facility, and subsequently cancel its 2019 State Summer Games. The organization plans to rebuild and will rely on community support from across the state, through promotions like the Drive it Home Raffle so that athletes have access to programs in their communities.   

“It is critical this year to achieve our fundraising goal since the Jefferson City-based SOMO Training for Life Campus was significantly damaged during the tornado last month that came through the area,” added Stegeman.

To track the progress of the 2019 Drive It Home raffle, please follow SOMO on Facebook,  https://www.facebook.com/specialolympicsmo/,  or Twitter, @SOMissouri.
