NONPROFIT ORGANIZATION HOLDING RAFFLE WITH GRAINGER Companies — ONLY 1,000 TICKETS AVAILABLE
SAVANNAH, GA – APRIL 14, 2022 – The 200 Club of the Coastal Empire, in conjunction with car dealership owner Bill Grainger and the Grainger Companies, is raffling off a new car to raise money for the club.
Tickets are now on sale for $100 each and may be purchased at our200club.com. Only 1,000 tickets will be sold until the raffle is held on Labor Day weekend, Saturday, Sept. 3, 2022. The winner will get to choose between a 2022 Nissan Rogue or a 2022 Honda CR-V donated by Bill Grainger and the Grainger Companies, who will also fully pay the sales taxes on the vehicle. All the proceeds will benefit the 200 Club, which provides significant financial support for the surviving spouses and dependents of first responders who have lost their lives or sustain critical injuries in the line of duty.
The nonprofit organization serves 20 counties within Georgia and South Carolina. Families of fallen first responders suffer tremendous devastation and pay the price for the community’s safety; they may even be left without a reliable source of income. To ease the grieving process and ensure surviving spouses and children have a bit less stress in their lives, the 200 Club recognizes the families’ sacrifices through immediate benefits and financial assistance, often starting only days after a loss occurs.
The raffle drawing will be conducted at a Sept. 3 cookout for the community held at the Grainger Honda/Nissan dealerships. Food will be provided by the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office, and attendees will enjoy musical entertainment and other activities. The event is free and open to the community.
200 Club President/CEO Mark Dana expressed his gratitude for both Bill Grainger and Sheriff John Wilcher for their support with this endeavor.
“Bill Grainger deserves a huge thank you for his willingness to support the club through the incredibly generous donation of a new car. Also, paying the sales taxes on it so the winner doesn’t have to is almost unheard of in charitable giveaways like this. This is a true act of kindness and compassion for the families we support,” Dana said. “The sheriff’s office has supported us with their resources, helping us spread the word about the raffle, donating food for the cookout, assisting with facilitating everything. We couldn’t do this without our partners.”
To purchase a raffle ticket, please visit our200club.com. Only 1,000 tickets will be sold, greatly increasing each ticketholder’s opportunity to win. The winner need not be present at the drawing. 100% of proceeds benefits the many family members we honorably serve with significant financial assistance, as well as a fully paid college education.
