Why not a Benzworld.org car raffle?

Why not a Benzworld.org car raffle?

1). The membership number looks good to me to support a raffle.

2). It can add revenue to help support the site.

3). Excess funds can be given to an auto related non-profit organization.

4). I can be driving a new Mercedes or better yet, half dozen good old Mercedes!

For example:

New Mercedes, lets say a model around $80,000.

The raffle could be for $100,000, limited to 1000 entries for $100, that gives the site $20,000 to play with, I am sure they will give a set amount to a non-profit auto org, the other is for the site and the legal people needed.

Everyone is happy.

I don't know that we could support an $80,000 raffle, but I suppose we could raffle off some nice classic for, say $10-15,000.

A new MB is pushing it - a $10-15k MB is a good idea. I'd probably do it, but I have spare income.

I believe the MBCA (Mercedes Club of America) has one yearly for a new car, at least they did when I belonged to them about 6 years ago...

It would be fun to have such a thing on a small scale (Maybe a good used one) tried out here....
