Adding to the list of 2016 VanDevere Thrive & Drive program participants is the Akron Soap Box Derby. This great community organization is selling raffle tickets to raise money for their own cause. These tickets are then entered into a drawing with other participating Thrive & Drive community organizations giving a lucky ticketed individual a chance to win a brand new car from VanDevere. Just another way VanDevere gives back to a supporting community since 1946.
Participating this year in VanDevere’s Thrive & Drive program is Tallmadge Force and Tallmadge Fury Baseball and Softball teams. These teams will be selling tickets with all of our other 2016 Thrive & Drive participants in efforts to raise money for their teams. All money from raffle tickets goes to the teams themselves. All tickets from participating organizations are them pooled together in a drawing for CHEVY CRUZE donated by The VanDevere Bunch.
