In Peoria one lucky resident will be glad to put his winning car on the street thanks to a local businessman.

Uftring Auto Group President Gary Uftring donated a 1974 Classic
Corvette Convertible to the Peoria Promise Program for its fundraising campaign.

Residents can buy $50 raffle tickets for a chance to win the vehicle.
Uftring says it's important to help the program which pays for local students to attend Illinois Central College.

"We are supporting various activities in all the schools all year long and this is another way that we can give young guys and gals the opportunity to know that there's a secondary education through Illinois Central College that's gonna be provided," Uftring said.

Two thousand tickets will be sold at $50dollars each for 3 for $100.

The raffle will be held April 9th at the Holiday Inn City Centre.

For more information residents can call Peoria Promise at 696-0951.
