Autos 4 Autism 2021 portable garage raffle, benefiting Visions of Hope Training Program, a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) Organization – Employer Identification # 47-4211765, is conducting this raffle to raise funds for ongoing charitable purposes. The Rules and Regulations of the A4A 2021 portable garage raffle are set forth below. By purchasing a raffle ticket, the purchaser agrees to be bound by these rules and regulations. Vision of Hope’s interpretation and application of the rules and regulations shall be final. The Grand Prize is a new 2021 12 x 24 Portable Garage, valued at approximately $8,000.

The Grand Prize Drawing is scheduled to be conducted by VISIONS OF HOPE on Saturday, April 17, 2021, the night of Vision of Hope’s Autos 4 Autism Event.

VISIONS OF HOPE takes no responsibility for any tax liabilities. Consult your tax advisor. This offer is void where prohibited by law, and all federal, state and local laws and regulations apply.
