What do you do with a new car given to your not-for-profit organization? Should you drive it to and from work, share it with the staff, or park it out front with your name on it? Nathan Hand, VP of Marketing and Development for Indy School on Wheels, was faced with this question. He had a better idea — why not use the car to generate income for IndySOW initiatives? Nathan went to his friends at Andy Mohr Toyota, TKO Graphix, and others, to help do just that.

IndySOW is raffling a new 2012 Toyota Highlander Hybrid. Proceeds from the raffle will go towards IndySOW’s iniatives of one-on-one tutoring for children affected by homelessness. Tickets are $100 with a maximum of 1000 tickets offered. This is a $47,000 vehicle! Click here for more information.
