Virtual Comedy Night: Big Raffle & Silent Auction
Our Comedy Night: Big Raffle & Silent Auction is going virtual this year! If you don't have your tickets already, be sure to get them while you still can as this is sure to be a sellout event. Join us on Saturday, January 30th for some much needed laughs with comedian Juston McKinney!
Although you will be tuning in this year from the comfort of your home, the cause remains the same. The Big Raffle & Silent Auction is our biggest fundraising event of the year. With your support, we are able to continue to provide students, the future workforce of the automotive industry, with scholarships and career and educational pathways to see them grow and succeed to have lasting careers in the industry.
While the big winners will always be the students who, with your generous donations, will be awarded scholarships through the NHADA Foundation (we awarded $75,000 for 2020/21 school year!) one lucky person will also be awarded $25K!
Only 1,000 $100 tickets will be sold and the first prize may be used at any one of approximately 500 NHADA member or partner companies or for tuition at a NH state or community college.
Each purchase of a $100 raffle ticket includes your entry into the Reverse Raffle. In addition to the top prize of $25,000, there will be numerous other prizes drawn throughout the evening.
Can’t wait for the fun to start?! The silent auction will go live virtually on January 12th, so make sure to bid early and bid often!
