“There are no words to adequately convey how grateful we are to Autobahn Motorcar Group and Wyndham Jade Travel for their generosity,”
says Roberta Meyer, Tarrant County Regional Executive Director for Big Brothers Big Sisters. “For every five tickets sold at this raffle, we are able to support a mentoring relationship in North Texas for an entire year. The number of children this one event has positively impacted over the last 15 years is staggering.”
“The Autobahn Motorcar Group is proud of our raffle partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters,” says Larry Barker, Community Service Director for Autobahn. “This event has given countless local children the opportunity to be matched with caring mentors.
