District 22-D

Car Raffle

Updated February 17, 2016

The Milford Lions Club started the Car Raffle in 1988.  The first year, the prize was a 1988 Ford Thunderbird, the winner was Ray Brown from Laurel, DE.  Later we extended the raffle to all Lion Clubs in Multiple District 22. Our club would run the project, providing the tickets and prizes.  The clubs that participated would keep half of the money they raise for their community projects.   Since then, Lion Clubs in Multiple District 22 have raised over $3,000,000 for community projects. A couple years later we decided to increased the prizes two vehicles, usually a midsize car and a pick-up truck.  The prizes were changed again in 1997 to a popular vehicle, usually a 4X4 SUV and $10,000 in cash prizes.  Ten years later, in 2007 we had to reduce the cash prize to $5,000 due to the ever increasing cost of purchasing a vehicle. This year 2015, we are giving away a: 2015 Chevy Equinox LS or $20,000 and 10 - $500 cash prizes, click to see poster.
