How would you like to win a one-year lease of a Mercedes-Benz GLK? How about a Rolex watch valued at more than eight grand? Tickets to the U.S. Open in New York, airfare included? These and other great prizes are available as part of “For the Life of a Child Giveaway,” a fundraiser for The Child Abuse Prevention Center. Raffle tickets are $50 and you can pick them up at any Lyon Real Estate office or Sharif Jewelers at 1338 Howe Ave. in Sacramento, by calling 1-800-CHILDREN (which turns out to be 800-244-53736 and, yes, that looks like it’s too long of a number, but it does work!) or logging onto forthelifeofachild.org. Winners will be drawn during “Good Day Sacramento” on Friday, March 15 toward the end of the show. Winning numbers also will be listed on forthelifeofachild.org.
Tickets sales will be capped at 5,000, helping your odds of winning one of 35 prizes. If tickets are still available on March 15, viewers of “Good Day Sacramento” will be able to call in that morning to purchase tickets. Take a look at what’s up for grabs here. OK, not all of the prizes are as lush as winning a Benz for a year, but I’ll take a $500 gift card to Staples, no problem.
