A classic 1969 Volkswagon Convertible Beetle is the grand prize for this years Columbia Valley Rockies Classic Car Raffle.

Classic car up for grabs

For a chance to drive to Columbia Valley Rockies' games in style this season, make sure to buy your tickets soon.

For a chance to drive to Columbia Valley Rockies’ games in style this season, make sure to buy your tickets soon for the Rockies Classic Car Raffle where a 1969 Volkswagon convertible Beetle valued at $7,000 will make one Rockies fan a very happy person.

“We certainly appreciate all the support, and make sure to get your tickets as there are a few left,” said Rockies president Al Miller.

Miller said the Classic Car Raffle has been held for the past eight years, and over time they’ve given away some truly awesome cars, including an El Camino and a Chevrolet truck. This particular car, the 1969 Beetle, may well be familiar to some long-time residents of the Columbia Valley as it was also auctioned off several years ago. The winner that year decided she had no need for another vehicle and sold it back to the club, meaning anyone who bought a ticket for the car the first time around has another chance to win this blast from the past.

Tickets are $5 for one or $20 for five, and are available wherever the car may be found. Most notably, the Beetle will be making an appearance at the Columbia Valley Classics Show ‘n’ Shine car show on Saturday (September 15) where tickets may be purchased. If you miss the Show ‘n’ Shine, fear not, because tickets will also be available right up until the draw itself, which will happen between periods of the Columbia Valley Rockies home opener on September 15, beginning at 7:30 p.m. There is also a second place prize of $1,000 to be won.
