Tickets & Official Rules
AUSTIN, Texas, May 17, 2016 -- Special Olympics Texas (SOTX) officially announced Toyota as its newest Official Partner today, making the automaker a year-round statewide $250,000-level co-sponsor of the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. SOTX provides year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for more than 55,200 children and adults with intellectual disabilities in the state of Texas.
To celebrate this new partnership, the two organizations have created a “Let’s Go Places Together” opportunity drawing — and one lucky person will win a fully loaded 2017 Toyota Tundra 1794 Edition
Raffle tickets for the opportunity drawing can be purchased at www.sotx.org/toyota.
The winning ticket will be drawn during SOTX’s annual “Very Special Celebration” gala at its Chapter Headquarters in Austin at 9 p.m. on Dec. 2, 2016.
Tickets are limited and packages start at $25 and go as high as $200 for 10 tickets. An individual who is 21 years or older, a U.S. citizen in continental U.S., with a valid driver’s license can purchase as many tickets or ticket packs as he/she wishes, subject to availability. Ticket sales will close upon the sale of $250,000 worth of tickets or at 7:00 pm December 2, 2016, whichever comes first.
The winner is solely responsible for any and all state or local license, title, registration, taxes, or fees associated with the vehicle, as well as insurance (proof of which must be shown prior to delivery) and pickup or delivery costs at the dealership as well as any non-standard options chosen by the winner and negotiated with the dealership.
The odds of buying the winning ticket ranges from 1 in 1,250 (assuming that every ticket purchase was a 10-pack at $200 from 1,250 different people) to 1 in 10,000 (assuming every ticket purchase was an individual single ticket at $25 from 10,000 different people).
