1868 Foundation raffling off $65,000 Chevy Silverado

One lucky winner will be driving away from the Nebraska State Fair in a 2023 Chevy Silverado thanks to an exciting new opportunity from the Nebraska State Fair 1868 Foundation. 

The 1868 Foundation will begin selling raffle tickets on Aug. 1 for a chance to win a fully loaded, $65,000 2023 Chevy Silverado Crew Cab RST 4.0 Diesel Pickup Truck from Tom Dinsdale Automotive.  
“We are thrilled for this fun opportunity for our fellow Nebraskans,” said Lindsey Koepke, Executive Director of the Nebraska State Fair 1868 Foundation. “Charitable support has always been vital to assuring that the State Fair remains strong and has a solid foundation for continued growth.” 

All proceeds from the raffle will be directed towards future improvements for the Nebraska State Fair. This year,  the 1868 Foundation provided $150,000 toward the LED screens in the barns and Five Points Bank Arena, $40,000 toward 4-H & FFA Divisional Awards and $25,000 toward volunteer coordination efforts.

“We can’t wait to see the lucky winner leave the State Fair in a brand-new pick up,” said Koepke. “This is the first time we have tried a raffle of this magnitude and it brings us happiness knowing one lucky Nebraskan will have a life-changing opportunity thanks to the Nebraska State Fair 1868 Foundation.”
