Model A Ford Club Hosts Raffle to Benefit AHC Students
JULY 21, 2021 -- The Santa Maria Model A Ford Club will continue its tradition of holding a grand raffle to raise money for funding student scholarships in the Allan Hancock College’s industrial technology program.
The club will host its annual grand raffle on Saturday, Sept. 11, at 3 p.m. at the Orcutt Union Plaza on 201 S. Broadway in Old Town Orcutt during its 19th annual All-Ford Car Show. The raffle has raised thousands of dollars for Hancock’s industrial technology students over the last 18 years.
“As a club, we are proud that we can help provide scholarships for these students,” said Jay McCord, Model A Ford Club president and car show chairman. “Many of the students who receive these scholarships have gone on to have successful careers in the automotive industry. We are grateful for the opportunity to continue that legacy.”
The Santa Maria Model A Ford Club has been a long-time supporter of the department’s auto body and technology programs. Founded in 2003 by Chuck Bailey, a former Hancock instructor, and Van Newkirk, the club started its partnership with Hancock with two scholarships of $200 each.
The prizes for this year’s grand raffle include two-night stays at the Ragged Point Inn, the Airport Radisson Hotel of Santa Maria, and the Cambria Pines Lodge. The packages also include $300 cash for spending money and beautiful Central Coast gift baskets.
This year’s raffle is being held in partnership with the Allan Hancock College Foundation. All numbered tickets will be returned to raffle participants. Entrants do not need to be present at the raffle to win.
Car show entry and grand raffle ticket order forms are available at http://www.santamariamodelaclub.com. Tickets are $5 each or 25 for $100 and are tax deductible. The club encourages community members to help support Hancock students. Contact Jay McCord at 805-598-8133 and firstname.lastname@example.org for questions and additional details.
