PITTSFIELD, Mass.— Haddad Subaru and Berkshire Humane Society partner for the 10th Year annual "Choose Your Subaru" car raffle.
One winner will have their choice of a 2023 Subaru Crosstrek Limited, Forester Premium or Outback Premium with a value up to $33,000.
"Everyone knows about Berkshire Humane Society, but over the last 10 years we at Haddad Subaru have witnessed first-hand the tremendous work they do and the positive impact they have on our community and for the animals they serve," said George Haddad, President of Haddad Auto Group.
"We are honored to partner with John and his team at Berkshire Humane Society for the 10th annual Subaru Raffle. We know that the funds raised benefit our four-legged community significantly."
The raffle is limited to 2,400 tickets. If at least 1,000 tickets are not sold, the raffle will convert to a 50/50 drawing of net proceeds.
Tickets are $40 each or three for $100 and are available in Pittsfield at Berkshire Humane Society's main shelter and Haddad Subaru, in Lanesboro at Baker's Golf Center, in Richmond at Bartlett's Orchard and in Great Barrington at Catwalk Boutique and Purradise. They are also available by calling the shelter at 413-447-7878 extension 131.
The winner will be drawn on Saturday, October 29 at 1pm at Haddad Subaru, 652 East Street, Pittsfield, MA 01201.
"It's hard to believe that it's been 10 years already that we've joined with Haddad Subaru to offer this raffle. We are grateful for their partnership. They've helped us raise hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years, saving the lives of thousands of animals and helping pet owners throughout the Berkshires," said John Perreault, Executive Director of Berkshire Humane Society.
"We rely on donations to fund our day-to-day operations, so we encourage animal lovers to buy a raffle ticket to support our work and have the chance to drive away in a brand-new car."
Berkshire Humane Society has an annual budget of more than $1.5 million, impacting more than 2,000 animals each year through adoption and surrender, medical care, spay/neuters, vaccine clinics, Pet Food Bank, and Family Dog School.
The Society's humane education programs reach hundreds of school children annually and a SafePet Program provides free, temporary pet care for people in crisis.
All proceeds benefit homeless animals of the Berkshires. For more information, call 413-447-7878, extension 131. Follow the event on Facebook @BerkshireHumane or check the shelter's website for more information.
