Long time Friend of MF Francis Macasieb asked us to spread the word on a raffle involving a new MINI Cooper. Here’s the info…

>The Center for Companies that Care is a national not-for-profit organization whose main goal is to educate and inspire employers to incorporate business practices that will support the needs of society as well as the profitability of the business (click here for more info: http://www.companies-that-care.org/index.php).

>The CTC is having their annual Benefit Dinner on NOV 5th to raise funds for their programs. One of their programs – AIM High, is focused on helping inner-city high school students in Chicago by facilitating a mentorship between a corporate mentor and a student. I’ve been fortunate to have been involved as a mentor for the last year. The mentorship is a long-term commitment with the expectation of following the student not only through high school, but onto college and hopefully graduating from a 4-year college.

>This is where your help is needed. The CTC is having a raffle. The grand prize is either a new MINI Cooper or $15,000. Tickets are $100 each or 3 for $250. Only 500 tickets will be sold. The deadline to purchase raffle tickets is Monday NOV 2nd (click here to purchase tickets: http://www.companies-that-care.org/l2_news_73.php). The winner need not be present. Delivery of the MINI would occur at one of the Chicagoland MINI dealerships.

>Wouldn’t it be great to own another MINI?? With only 500 tickets to be sold, your chances are pretty good at winning the prize. Hope you can help!! With about a week to go, what are you waiting for!!!
