If you’ve been following me on Twitter, then you know I’ve been busy shopping in a Chevy Equinox loaner for the big Doernbecher raffle. I’ve put together a grill package consisting of a fabulous Traeger Lil Tex Pro Grill and Smoker (sells for $799), $200 in delicious steaks from The Meating Place, a $100 Parr Lumber gift card (for grill accessories and meat rubs), and a great grill recipes book from Powell’s Books. The Chevy Shop Social: Portland fundraiser will take place this Thursday (May 21st) in Pioneer Square on May 21st (starts 6 pm). Raffle tickets are only $2 each (12 tickets for $10, 15 tickets for $20). That means for as little as $2, you can enter to win my grill package that is worth over $1100. Sweet deal, right? As I mentioned before, this is a great cause because raffle proceeds will benefit the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital Foundation.
In addition to the raffle, the Chevy Shop Social: Portland event will feature food trucks, beer and wine, live music, and Chevy vehicles on display. Chevy Shop Social: Portland is sponsored by Chevrolet and SheBuysCars.com. I also want to give a big thank you to Oregon-based Traeger Wood Pellet Grills (via Parr Lumber) for donating the awesome smoker, and The Meating Place for doubling the value of the gift certificate I purchased.
In case you’re curious, below are some details for three of the items in my grill raffle package for Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.
