8th Annual BMW Raffle
ATLANTA, September 20, 2015 – Atlanta BMW dealers Global Imports BMW, Nalley BMW of Decatur, United BMW of Roswell, United BMW of Gwinnett Place and BMW of South Atlanta have teamed up to donate a 2016 BMW 428i Convertible to Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities (ARMHC) to be awarded as the grand prize of the Charity’s annual car raffle.
This marks the eighth consecutive year that the local area BMW dealers have donated a vehicle to ARMHC. Last year, proceeds from the BMW raffle surpassed the $1 million mark.
“We at BMW are greatly inspired by the mission of the Atlanta Ronald McDonald Houses,” said Russ Lucas, Southern Region Vice President for BMW of North America. “Our long-standing partnership with ARMHC has benefitted thousands of families whose children are battling serious illnesses. Raising more than $1 million for families of sick kids is a significant accomplishment that BMW is extremely proud of.”
This year’s grand prize winner will drive off in a luxury BMW with an estimated value of $52,795. The second prize winner will win three Birks “Muse” sterling silver stackable bangles from Mayors Jewelers at Phipps Plaza. The third prize is a $500 Macy’s shopping spree.
Raffle tickets are $100 each with 100% of the net proceeds going to support families staying at the two Atlanta Ronald McDonald Houses. Tickets are available until December 4, 2015 by visiting www.wina4series.com or by calling (678) 704-8097.
Since the annual car raffle began 17 years ago, more than $2 million has been raised to help fund the operations of Atlanta’s two Ronald McDonald Houses.
About Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities:
The mission of Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities is to nurture the health and well-being of children and families. The two Atlanta Houses have provided a “home-away-from-home” to more than 45,000 families since the first Atlanta House opened in 1979. For more information about ARMHC, please visit www.armhc.org.
At the Ronald McDonald House, families can enjoy many of the comforts of home, receive nutritious meals prepared and served by volunteers and obtain emotional support through contact with other families experiencing similar situations. No family is turned away if they cannot afford the small $20 requested contribution and many of these families stay at the Ronald McDonald House for weeks, and sometimes months, while their children receive medical treatment.
