One lucky youngster is going to get to drive out of Gresham Ford late next month as the winner of a raffle in support of a local nonprofit food pantry.
Gresham Ford, 1999 E. Powell Boulevard, is offering an online auction for a Power Wheels Ford Bronco, a mini-vehicle for kids. Bidding opened Friday, Nov. 5, the same day SnowCap Community Charities' Fill-A-Bag fundraiser began. The auction is online at biddingforgood.com/snowcap , with all proceeds going to Fill-A-Bag. The bidding will end Dec. 20.
There are other ways to leave Gresham Ford with a new vehicle, besides the obvious purchase of a new car. Anyone who drops off canned food or cash donations will receive a ticket to win a remote-controlled Ford Bronco. The drawing will be randomly done every week through the end of December, with 8 chances to win.
SnowCap's annual Fill-A-Bag is a three-month fundraiser that brings together individuals and businesses across the community through a series of fun, creative events. Spearheaded by Gresham Ford, Riverview Community Bank, and Pamplin Media Group, the fundraiser helps keep the shelves stocked at the largest food pantry in East Multnomah County.
