VPR wrapped up its first-ever Summer Car Raffle today at noon! In all, we raised more than $145,000 to support VPR programming.
This raffle was an experiment for VPR, so we didn't know what to expect. But our listeners really came through - we heard a lot of interest and enthusiasm about the raffle, and many listeners shared their favorite road tunes, snacks, and Vermont drives with us.
So, what happens now? We'll spend the rest of the weekend making sure all the purchases get processed and tickets get mailed out. On Monday, we'll hold the drawing and notify the winner of the 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid. There's some legal stuff we have to do before we can make it official, so we'll announce the winner next Saturday, July 24th during Car Talk and in the 10 o'clock hour on VPR Classical. Of course, you can always check our blog and the website to find out as well.
We also want to say a huge thank you to Heritage Automotive Group, who provided such an awesome prize. Thank you again for all the ways in which you support VPR! Good luck in the raffle, and stay tuned!
