Spirit Gala Raffle tickets now on sale supporting Niswonger Children’s Hospital

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. – Now’s your chance to support a great cause – Niswonger Children’s Hospital – and have a shot at winning a new car or cash prizes. It’s the annual Mountain States Foundation Spirit Gala Raffle.

Tickets are on sale now. The event supports the region’s only children’s hospital, with the grand prize winner receiving a new car from Champion Chevrolet Cadillac. The winning ticket will be drawn and announced at the Spirit Gala on Jan. 27, 2018, at The Venue at the King’s Centre.

Tickets are $50 apiece and can be purchased at or at Champion Chevrolet on the Bristol Highway in Johnson City. Only 4,000 tickets can be sold.

The winner will get to choose one of three cars: 2017 Chevrolet Silverado Double Cab 2WD, 2018 Cadillac ATS or 2018 Chevrolet Traverse FWD. There are also cash prizes for the first, second and third runners-up of $2,500, $1,500 and $1,000, respectively, to be drawn after the grand prize.

This is the 11th year Champion has donated the grand prize. The dealership has given away a total of six new cars and $100,000 in cash over the last 10 years.

“We’re proud to sponsor the raffle again,” said Andy Dietrich, co-owner of Champion Chevrolet Cadillac. “Our community is very fortunate to have a children’s hospital that can treat our kids locally where families don’t have to travel or be separated from one another for treatment. Helping raise money for such a great cause is one of the ways we give back.”

Last year the raffle raised more than $98,000 for Niswonger Children’s Hospital.
