Car Raffle Final Month Goal: Sell 1,000 More Chances


Win a 2015 Fiat 500e electric vehicle with Radio Boise!

If you bought a lottery ticket for the recent $1 billion Mega Millions drawing, your odds of winning were 1 in 302.6 million. That means your odds of becoming an astronaut (1 in 12 million), winning an Oscar (1 in 11,500), or being crushed by a meteor (1 in 700,000) were better!

To hit our budget goals for the year, we’ll need to sell 1,000 more chances to win this year’s Fiat 500e before the big drawing on Friday, December 7. If we hit that target, your odds of winning will be somewhere around 1 in 2,000 with each chance.

While we don’t want to discourage your dreams of piloting a spaceship or winning an Academy Award, we encourage you to take a chance on expanding Radio Boise’s sound and a brighter future for our community through radio that connects, challenges, and inspires.

Why? Your odds of supporting community podcasting workshops, enhanced local content, expanded youth engagement, and taking Radio Boise’s sound to the next level with every chance is pretty straightforward. With 100% of the proceeds going toward community radio, even if you don’t win this year’s electric car, your odds of making your community more vibrant are 100%.

That’s a bet we’ll take any way.


Tickets are available at the Record Exchange, Radio Boise’s offices, and at upcoming events including our Radiothon Pickup Party on Thursday, November 15 and Cranksgiving on Saturday, November 17.

Tickets must be purchased in person, and we hope to see you for the final drawing at our Practice New Year’s Eve Party at the Linen Building on Friday, December 7.

You can help even more by encouraging friends and family to get in on the action.
