Only $35 for a Chance to Win a Car

Imagine spending $35 and driving away in a brand new car. It can happen to the lucky grand prize winner in the Solano Wine & Food Jubilee's Raffle. The top prize this year is a choice among five brand-new cars, thanks to local auto dealer Rami Yanni.

The winning ticket holder can choose between 2018 models of Nissan Altima, Kia Optima, Hyundai Sonata, Buick Verano or Mazda3 Hatchback. Raffle prize tickets are $35 each, or three for $100.

Yanni has several dealerships in Vacaville as part of the Wise Auto Group, and has generously supported the Jubilee for the past five years. The Jubilee and its raffle are fundraising opportunities for the programs of NorthBay Hospice & Bereavement.

In addition to the choice of cars as a top prize, $10,000 in cash will also be awarded, according to Wendy Jackson, raffle chair. There will be 12 winners of $125, 10 winners of $500, one winner of $1,000 and one $2,500 winner.

And, since only 2,500 tickets will be sold, the odds of winning something are about one in 100.

Purchase raffle tickets by calling (707) 646-3133, charge them to a credit card by fax at (707) 646-3135, or purchase in person at the NorthBay Healthcare Foundation office at 4500 Business Center Drive in Fairfield; at Jackson Medical Supply, 506 Main Street in Vacaville; or at Wasserman Travel, 366 Merchant St. in Vacaville.

The winning tickets will be drawn at the 31st annual Jubilee, set for May 19, 2018, at Harbison Event Center at the Nut Tree in Vacaville.

Ticketholders need not be present to win, but those who do attend will experience Solano County's finest opportunity to mingle and socialize while enjoying an evening of wine, brews, food and great music, all while benefitting a great cause - the programs of NorthBay Hospice & Bereavement.

Presenting Sponsors are Al and Patt Shaw, Lee and Valerie Freeman, Heidi Y. Campini, Dennis and Alex Landis, the Wise Auto Group, Western Health Advantage, DPR Construction and Paradise Valley Estates.

The Jubilee has a wine country casual theme, and the event gets underway at 6:30 p.m.

Tickets, for those ages 21 and up, are now $100 each (plus a small service charge), and must be purchased in advance by going to wineandfoodjubilee.org. Tickets will be $125 on the day of the event, if still available. Call (707) 646-3133 for information.
