Adopt-A-School, a 501c charitable organization, developed by Les and Pam Eck (Rusty Eck Ford), started with a simple idea in 2002. That idea was for businessmen in Wichita to align themselves with schools in the area and donate needed items. To build on that effort, they started a golf tournament to raise money for classroom books and supplies and teacher grants. Area golfers became great partners in helping to raise money. Area business' stepped up and donated food, drinks, and prizes so 100% of the proceeds go to the teachers and kids.
Les & Pam Eck also started the Adopt-A-School car giveaway and each year they donate a car to be given away to the lucky raffle ticket winner. Any non-profit organization, school, church, group, or charity can sell the tickets. The suggested donation of $10 per ticket is kept by the selling organization. The winner gets to pick a vehicle from one of our participating stores (Rusty Eck Ford, Midwest Kia, or Midwest Superstore in Hutchinson) that is valued up to $25,000. Every ticket stub is also a coupon good for $250 off the purchase of a new or used car and 10% off on parts or service visit.
If you would like to participate in the Adopt-A-School raffle ticket program, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call Vicky McMillin at 316-689-4409.
Let’s make this the best year yet!
