The car is valued at $21,000 and it costs just $20 per raffle ticket for the chance to win it.

The goal this year is to raise $250,000. If successful, it will be the fourth consecutive year that goal has been met. Over the past 10 years, the fundraiser has generated more than $1.4 million.

You can buy raffle tickets at the high schools, from student-athletes, and from the Chico Nissan-Hyundai dealership.
