If you haven’t yet put down some cash in order to help at-risk, underprivileged high school youth get a little boost from the Messner Foundation crew* (er… in order to potentially win a Tesla Model S 70D), you’ve got a week left to do so.
The 2015 Tesla 70 kWh Dual Motor Model S you could win is reportedly valued at $85,500, and the Messner Foundation is only issuing a maximum of 5,000 raffle tickets.
To be exact, the raffle will be held live on June 13, 2015, and will even include live streaming for those of us who can’t be there in person.
To reiterate, the Messner Foundation notes: “Proceeds from ticket sales will go towards the Messner Foundation, which identifies at-risk, underprivileged high school youth who demonstrate initiative, leadership, entrepreneurialism, and commitment to community. The Messner Foundation not only helps Messner Scholars financially, but also provides personal and professional mentoring from leaders in the business community.” That is what tipped me and got me to buy a ticket. Of course, you can’t expect to win, even if you can hope to, but if you feel like contributing a couple hundred dollars or more to such a cause anyway, entering seems like a given.
And regarding the goodies, the potential prize is:
- 2015 Tesla 70 kWh Dual Motor Model S® automobile valued at $85,500.00.
- Specifications: Exterior – Red Multi-Coat Paint, All Glass Panoramic Roof and 19-inch Wheels; Interior – Tan Nappa Leather Seats with Obeche Wood Gloss Décor; Tech Package, Parking Sensors, Ultra High Fidelity Sound; and Supercharger Enabled (Enables half charge in approx. 20 min. Includes all hardware, software, testing, and unlimited free charging).
My selfish side doesn’t want you to enter, since that would water down my chances! But honestly, I think it’s a good cause, and if you like things like raffles, it seems as good as any when it comes to the chances and the prize….
