The Colorado 4-H Foundation thanks our Local Ford Stores for a 10th Ford Truck in support of Colorado 4-H
The 4-H Foundation truck raffle ticket that Gary Jones of Sterling, Colorado bought last spring at the Denver Auto Show was drawn as the winning ticket at the CSU Ag/4-H Day football game earlier this month.
“This is the most I’ve ever won,” Jones said, when the new Ford F150 truck was delivered to him by 4-H Foundation Executive Director Gary Small. This year’s raffle marks the second time in a decade that a Sterling resident has won a truck through the annual raffle program.
“Half of the proceeds go to the state foundation,” Small said, “while the other 50 percent is distributed to the county 4-H programs where the tickets are sold.”
More than 33,000 raffle tickets were sold this year, raising nearly $141,000 in support of Colorado’s 4-H youth. In addition to the grand prize, the raffle includes 11 additional cash prizes.
Jones says he was happy to support the cause with his ticket purchase and that ag education programs like 4-H are “definitely worthwhile projects.”
The Colorado 4-H Foundation truck raffle program is the organization’s largest annual fundraiser, receiving generous support from Ford dealers statewide.
