The United Way of Laramie County just wrapped up its ninth year of the Car Voucher Program raising more than $360,000. 13 semi-finalists that donated at least $168 to the campaign gathered Tuesday for a raffle that awarded the winner $15,000 towards a vehicle of their choosing. Play the video to find out who the lucky winner was this year.
United Way of Laramie County provides funding to 25 Program Partners who assist over 26,000 Laramie County residents yearly. The co-chairs spoke of the great services being provided by the Program Partners and how United Way dollars are changing lives in Laramie County.
Much of the money is raised through employer campaigns and corporate gifts. Individuals, however, remain key to the campaign's success. The car voucher program campaign ended December 31.
Four local car dealers have joined together to provide a chance to win a $15,000 car voucher to those who contribute at least $168 to the 2012 campaign. This is the ninth year of the Car Voucher Program, which is an incentive to increase donations in the Campaign. This year's contributing dealerships are Cowboy Dodge Jeep Chrysler, Halladay Motors, Kia of Cheyenne and Spradley Barr Motors.
