You Could Drive Home in Jeff Gordon’s 2005 Corvette Convertible

Jeff Gordon Foundation Raffle
Concord, N.C., April 4, 2006 – Four-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Jeff Gordon and the Jeff Gordon Foundation recently announced the launch of the Foundation’s 2006 benefit raffle.  This year’s contest will put one lucky person in the driver’s seat of Gordon’s 2005 Corvette Roadster. In addition to donating his personal vehicle, Gordon has committed to pay all tax, title and licensing fees associated with transferring title from his name to the winner’s. 

Funds raised from the contest will be used to ensure the Foundation’s continued financial support of organizations dedicated to improving the health and welfare of children and their families. Since its founding in 1999, the Foundation has provided funding in excess of $3.4 million to various programs throughout the United States.

"It has been a privilege to witness the outstanding work of so many organizations firsthand,” said Gordon. “Ensuring that The Foundation has the necessary resources to continue to help meet the physical, social and intellectual needs of children and their families is a personal priority for me.  I am thrilled that so many people are willing to support that goal through events like our benefit raffle.”

Tickets for the raffle can be purchased for $100 each on the Foundation website at http://www.jeffgordonfoundation.org/. All entries must be received by 12 p.m. EST on November 1, 2006.  The winner’s name will be drawn on November 1, 2006 at 5 p.m.  If the winner is present, the car keys will be awarded on Sunday, November 5, 2006 at the Dickies 500, at Texas Motor Speedway.  A complete copy of the rules and regulations are posted on the Foundation website.
