Chico, Calif.-- "Sports is so important to me, I love it, and this shows how hard everyone works and is driven for the good of the community, the good of the schools," said Liam Davis, Chico High Athlete.

Dozens of student athletes like Liam Davis gathered at Chico Nissan before sunrise to kickoff the 2018 Almond Bowl Car Giveaway.

"This is our biggest fundraiser of the entire year, both schools make a lot of money and we give it to all the sports, each team, it helps to fund whatever they need," said Laura Daugherty from PV High.

For nearly a decade now, the dealership's donated a car for students to raffle off at the big Chico-versus-PV Almond Bowl on October 26th.

"Little special twist this year, each school has a car in their specific color to show and at the end the winner has a choice of picking either red or blue," said Sales Manager Ron Ricci.

The 2018 Sentras have the premium package, including a moon-roof and back-up cameras, and the school boosters take care of taxes and license fees.

"We're part of the chico community, Brian and myself are graduates from the local high schools, we're trying to chase that million and a half mark this year of total funds raised in our 9th year," said Ricci.

Now it's the students' jobs to sell those tickets, at $20 apiece. You'll likely see them selling around town over the next two months.

"It's a lot of fun, if you go work the booths, maybe with a friend, it doesn't matter what sport you play, you just go out and have fun," said Chico High Athlete Shay LaMusga.

"Every team, every kid, every parent, grandparent, they all help. We couldn't do it without all of them," said Daugherty.

"Honestly we are so grateful, not only to Chico Nissan but Roundtable Pizza supplies the tickets and prints them out for free and it's just amazing that they're willing to do that to support their high schools," said LaMusga.
