Win a BMW, support cancer research

BMW 128i

What better way to kick off the Jimmy V Celebrity Golf Classic than a chance to win a BMW 128i?  The BMW — courtesy of Leith BMW — is the grand prize for this year’s Reverse Raffle for Cancer Research.  The trick is to be the last man standing.

The raffle will take place Aug. 24 and tickets are $100, but you better get yours soon because only 1,000 are being sold.  For the reverse raffle, the goal is to be the last ticket number called instead of the first.  While there’s only one BMW to be won, other prizes such as restaurant gift cards will be handed out throughout the night.  The event will take place at the Raleigh Convention Center.

The raffle tends to get pretty heated at the end as the last few ticket holders get the chance to get on stage and “wheel and deal” for the final ticket.  Even if you’re not on stage, it’s entertainment in itself to watch.

Seating is open at the raffle event but for $1,100 you can sponsor your own table and get a great package that includes 10 raffle tickets and 20 gallery tickets to the Golf Classic on Sunday Aug. 26 — which will be held at the Lonnie Poole Golf Course this year.

Aside from the raffle, there will be great food, a cash bar and entertainment at the event.  Some of the celebrity golfers will also be stopping by to enjoy the festivities and mingle with guests.  At this point, what are you waiting for?
