Press Release 4/23/18 (Kent, Connecticut) – The Kent Memorial Library will raffle a pristine 2003 BMW Z4 Roadster in a fund raising raffle project starting on Memorial Day. The sterling grey convertible has very low mileage, and includes five speed manual transmission, fuel injection, 2.5 liter, 184 horsepower and a six cylinder engine.

“The car raffle is back by popular demand and this year’s car is hot and beautiful,” said Jim Blackketter, co-president of the Kent Library Association and a member of the “car guys” team that organizes each year’s raffle. Tickets are $20 and a drawing for the winner will be held at 2:00 p.m. the 42nd Annual Kent Pumpkin Run on Sunday, October 28. Winners do not need to be present to win.

Raffle tickets are being sold in the library, during the annual Library Book Sale and at multiple venues around town.

Tickets may also be purchased by sending the Library a check with a self-addressed stamped envelope addressed to: Kent Memorial Library Car Raffle, P.O. Box 127, Kent, CT 06757, and the raffle stubs will be mailed back to raffle entrants. Entrants must include a phone number where they can be reached on October 28 should they win.

The Kent Memorial Library launched the popular car raffle a dozen years ago. Proceeds go to support the Library’s operating budget and make an important contribution since the Library is responsible for raising over 70% of its annual budget.

The Kent Memorial Library’s mission is to enrich the lives of individuals and the community by providing materials, programs, and services to encourage reading, learning and imagination. The library is located at 32 North Main Street, Kent, Connecticut. Visit kentmemoriallibrary.org for more information.
