New Lincoln-Way Foundation Dream Raffle Features a 2016 Ford Mustang as its Grand Prize!
Tuesday, August 9, 2016

There is a new twist to the long-standing Lincoln-Way Foundation Dream Raffle! This year, the grand prize winner may choose between a 2016 Ford Mustang and $20,000 cash!

Foundation Board Director and Dream Raffle Co-Chair Janet Caschetta commented, “The Foundation is thrilled to partner with Currie Motors Ford of Frankfort this year for our Dream Raffle. We are grateful that they support our mission of enhancing educational opportunities for Lincoln-Way students.”

The first opportunity for the public to see the Lincoln-Way Dream Mustang, and purchase tickets for the raffle, is Saturday, August 20. Currie Motors Ford of Frankfort is hosting the Raffle Kick-Off at their location from 11am to 1pm. The Kick-Off will include a fun array of food, beverages, and chances to win extra prizes! “We are proud to support the Lincoln-Way Foundation,” commented General Manager Jason Latif. “I live and work in this community. It is clear to me that the Lincoln-Way high schools deliver an extraordinary educational experience. We are happy to be able to contribute by partnering with the Lincoln-Way Foundation on the Dream Raffle.”

Dream Raffle tickets will be available beginning August 20. When a raffle ticket is purchased for $100, the buyer receives $110 in coupons from local businesses. “The Foundation is very fortunate to receive unparalleled support from the community,” commented Board Director and Dream Raffle Co-Chair Karl Landenberger. “There are 12 local businesses who are supporting the raffle as Coupon Sponsors. They not only offer a coupon benefit to our raffle ticket buyers, they each make a significant donation, which helps to cover some of the costs of the campaign.”

In addition to offering a 2016 Ford Mustang as the Grand Prize, this year’s Lincoln-Way Foundation Dream Raffle has a few other significant changes. “We have shortened the duration of the campaign, and reduced the number of raffle tickets that will be sold,” explained Landenberger. “This year, no more than 1,000 tickets will be sold. There are also seven additional cash prizes that will be offered - so the odds of winning are better than ever before!”

Dream Raffle Co-Chairs Caschetta and Landenberger are excited about the changes in this year’s raffle. Caschetta, who has served as a Foundation board director since the inception of the Lincoln-Way Foundation commented, “The consistent dedication of the Lincoln-Way community to support the Foundation’s mission has been one of the many reasons I have volunteered as a Foundation board director since 1994. I feel both proud and humbled to be able to give back to the District that has provided my family with so many exemplary educational experiences.”

Both Caschetta and Landenberger are Lincoln-Way graduates. They invite you to help support the dreams of today’s Lincoln-Way students by purchasing a Dream Raffle ticket. They would love to see you drive away in a new Mustang!

The mission of the Lincoln-Way High School District 210 Foundation for Educational Excellence is to creatively generate financial support with which to enrich and enhance the opportunities and educational experiences of Lincoln-Way High School District 210 students.
