SA YES’ Drive Away for Education Raises Record Funds
The SA YES Drive Away 4 Education Truck Raffle recently ended and the lucky winner, Shirley, has walked away with a brand new Ancira Auto Group 2019 truck. Thanks to the overwhelming participation, with over 2,200 tickets sold, SA YES raised over $171,000 for Title 1 elementary students in San Antonio. This year’s totals were a record-setting all-time high from previous years and will supply 34,200 school supply kits in the coming year.
Austin YES also completed their Drive Away 4 Education Truck Raffle and raised over $46,000; supplying 9,200 school supply kits to Austin area students. The lucky winner, Anya, selected her new truck last week.
