Penticton Mayor Andrew Jakubeit bought the first ticket on Friday for a Harley motorcycle raffle, put on to support the OSNS Child and Youth Development Centre.
Raffle tickets for the 2018 Harley Davidson Heritage Softail Classic go for $20 each or three for $50. All proceeds go to the OSNS.
The motorcycle is supplied by Gasoline Alley Harley Davidson of Kelowna.
The annual raffle is one of the “biggest and longest running fundraisers” put on by the OSNS, according to community engagement coordinator Meg Dimma.
A total of 4,000 tickets have been printed for the raffle. The draw will take place on Jun. 24 at Gyro Park at 11 a.m., during the closing ceremonies of the Peach City Beach Cruise.
Tickets can be purchased through the OSNS online, or through the Okanagan Motorcyle Riders Association or Gasoline Alley Harley Davidson.
There will also be a trailer with OSNS logos carrying the motorbike that will be set up at various locations in Penticton to sell raffle tickets in coming weeks, which Dimma said will be easily recognizable.
