Harley motorbike raffle is back

Kelowna & District Safety Council’s annual fundraiser puts the lucky winner on a brand new Harley Davidson.

Now in its ninth year, the Kelowna & District Safety Council’s most popular fundraiser is back. This Canada Day, one lucky winner will be riding in style this summer after winning a brand new 2015 Harley Davidson and a 30 hour Learn to Ride course from KDSC.

The prize bike is a gorgeous 1690cc with classic retro styling in Superior Blue. Complete with removable windshield and saddlebags and mini ape-hangers, you could be cruising Okanagan highways in style this summer.

The total prize value is $24,380.25, and ticket purchasers will help to support KDSC’s Little Travellers’ Safety Village for kids. “We’ve got just over two weeks left in our ticket sales, so if anyone wants to get in on a chance to win big, they should contact us soon,” said Tania Meyer, KDSC executive director.

Only 4,200 tickets are being sold, and ticket prices are $20 each or 3/$50. The winner will be announced at a public random draw on Canada Day, July 1, 10 a.m. at KDSC (395 Hartman Road); the winner does not have to be present to claim the prizes.

The prize hog will be on display at Mara Lumber June 15–19, Boyd’s Father’s Day Car Show June 21, and Canadian Tire June 22 – 24. Tickets can also be purchased by calling KDSC at 250-765-3163 (1-888-580-7233) or by requesting a ticket through the entry form on the website’s raffle page at www.kdsc.bc.ca.

As a fundraiser for KDSC, proceeds from this raffle will help ensure that its children’s safety programs will continue to grow. The Kelowna & District Safety Council operates the Little Travellers’ Safety Village, with programs such as traffic/pedestrian/bicycle safety, Babysitter Training, Home Alone, First Aid, and birthday parties for kids.

KDSC also offers driver training programs and runs B.C.’s longest running and largest motorcycle training programs outside of the Lower Mainland. “As a not-for-profit organization, we really rely on this raffle to make our programs possible, and people can help us achieve our goals for as little as $20….and they’ll have a chance at great prizes as well,” said Meyer.
