Amidst the current pandemic, we shifted our largest fundraising events of the year to an online auction and raffle. The auction included a variety of exciting items to bid on from gift cards to vacation getaways. In addition, our sponsor, the Ancira Auto Group generously donated the prize vehicle for this year’s raffle. The raffle winner had the opportunity to choose between five different vehicle options including:
- 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
As a result of our efforts, the online auction and raffle raised a record-breaking $317,000. Proceeds from the online auction and raffle will directly benefit SA YES’ Back to Basics Project, which will support Title 1 elementary schools for the 2021-2022 school year. Although the new school year will look quite different, SA YES wanted to ensure that they could still provide essential school supplies for students.
“The tireless generosity and unwavering support from the community and local sponsors has helped our organization thrive even during these uncertain times,” said SA YES Executive Director, Danielle Gunter. “Each year, we are determined to serve Title 1 elementary schools, and with our tremendous group of supporters, we can fulfill that mission again this year.”
