Peoria Promise Dream Car Raffle

One of the great local organizations is Peoria Promise. They have provided hundreds of eligible Peoria area students with an education at ICC. This year alone they will support over 350 students - quite a feat. It's a great mission that should only serve to make Peoria stronger and more successful. All of the support these young adults receive is made possible by the generosity of area citizens and businesses.

Uftring Auto Group formally announced our plans to help Peoria Promise at a press conference this morning. A 1974 Corvette Convertible will be donated to Peoria Promise for the Dream Car Raffle. The money from the raffle will help pay for local area students college education at ICC.

Gary Uftring and the Uftring Auto Group have donated a restored 1974 Corvette Stingray Convertible to Peoria Promise to serve as the Dream Car. It's a beautiful machine that should have no trouble bringing joy to its new owner. Only 2000 tickets will be sold at $50 each, or 3 for $100. Buy one before they run out!

One lucky person wins a stunning car, the Uftring Auto Group is able to support the community through an outstanding local organization and many hard working students will be able to realize their dreams of a college education. It's a win all around if you ask us. Now it's time to play your part! Purchase a raffle ticket from Peoria Promise.
