The Harlingen Area Educational Foundation is continuing their mission to support students by hosting a car raffle to help raise funds for the HCISD Superintendent’s Scholarship Fund.
In partnership with Boggus Ford, HAEF will be selling raffle tickets for a 2014 Ford Focus at First Community Bank, Chick-fil-a and Janine Marie Photography starting Nov. 15. Tickets will be sold for $200 each and the odds of winning are 1 in 200.
The grand prize will be raffled off on Dec. 15 at the HCISD administration building, 407 N. 77 Sunshine Strip. The raffle will be held at 12:30 p.m. Individuals do not need to present to win.
For the winner, they will have the option to buy up and apply the value of the car to the purchase of another model.
The Harlingen Area Educational Foundation, Inc., an independent, non-profit corporation promoting quality education in Harlingen CISD schools, was established in 1990. It was organized to provide supplemental programs to support at-risk youth and to lower the dropout rate. The Foundation’s mission later expanded to generate and to distribute resources to enrich, to maintain, and to expand programs needed to meet the district’s stated mission of excellence in education. The Foundation provides funds for educational programs and activities, which either have not been funded or have been underfunded by the normal operating budget. These funds are used to facilitate student achievement and skill development and to expand community involvement for individuals, business and civic organizations.
