A 2015 Tesla 70kWh Model S (aka Tesla 70D) electric car is being raffled off on June 13, 2015, at 7 pm, in Denver, by the Messner Foundation*. Proceeds from the raffle will reportedly be used by the foundation to help out “highly motivated” but underprivileged high school students aiming for the pursuit of higher education.
Given that the Tesla that will be raffled live is valued at $85,500; and that the cause seems to be a fairly good one; there’s not much of a reason not to buy a ticket, is there?
Here’s a bit more information on what the Model S in question includes (for those still on the fence):
- a red multi-coat paint exterior,
- an all-glass panoramic roof,
- 19-inch wheels,
- tan Nappa leather seats with Obeche wood gloss decor,
- the tech package included,
- and ultra high fidelity sound.
And, perhaps most important of all, the 2015 Tesla 70 kWh Dual Motor Model S in question is Supercharger enabled, which means free supercharging for life.
Can’t really argue with that, can you?
The deadline for those interested is June 13, but considering that there are ‘only’ 5000 tickets being sold, perhaps now is the time to purchase one. You can do so here. (The raffle will be streamed live over the internet.)
Our sister site SolarLove provides some background information:
Based in Denver, Colorado, the Messner Foundation is a philanthropic initiative of Messner Reeves LLP. “Honored to work closely with young companies with great potential,” Messner Reeves has witnessed firsthand they way huge dividends can be earned by investing in future corporate leaders. Coming to Messner Reeves and Monty Moran for legal counsel in the late 1990s, Chipotle Mexican Grill was just a small startup restaurant at the time. Through Monty Moran’s tireless efforts, Chipotle Mexican Grill is now a publicly traded company and an international leader in the restaurant business.
Believing that “similar potential for growth and excellence exists in our high schools,” the Messner Foundation exists to help it be discovered. Your raffle ticket purchase can help that discovery lead to the development of Messner Scholars as future business and community leaders.
Hmm. Sounds good. Some lucky person is going to get a brand new Model S, and a bunch of people are going to get to help what seems to be a worthwhile cause.
