Friends of City Park raffles 2012 FIAT to support new entrance to Botanical Garden and Storyland

While Lark in the Park, Friends of City Park's premier fundraiser, has come and gone for another year, its goal of raising funds for the new entrance to the Botanical Garden and Storyland continues.

Through the generosity of Ray Brandt Automotive, Friends of City Park is raffling a 2012 Fiat Pop Hatchback for $75 per chance.  Only 2,000 tickets will be sold.  This Italian designed car has an MSRP of $16,200 and gets 38 MPG on the highway.

The Fiat Pop features a 1.4 liter engine, 5-speed transmission, hands-free communication, AM/FM/CD/MP3 Radio with an audio jack, power windows with one-touch down feature, remote keyless entry, leather wrap steering wheel, advance multistage front air bags and a four-year 50,000 mile warranty.

The drawing will be held on July 25, 2012 at 8 p.m. in conjunction with Friends' Fest, Friends of City Park's free members-only event held in the Carousel Gardens Amusement Park.  The winner is responsible for all taxes, registration, title and license fees.  The vehicle may not be redeemed for cash.

Visit www.friendsofcitypark.com for official rules of entry or to purchase an online ticket.  Tickets are also available Monday through Friday in the Friends of City Park office, 1 Palm Drive, New Orleans, 70124 between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. and at the Botanical Garden Gift Shop, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Tuesday -Sunday.

For additional information, call the Friends of City Park office at 504-483-9376.
