You could start your new year with a new car or flat screen TV. These items could help a good cause as well.

Kandace Parsons with the Make-A-Wish Foundation says it's holding a raffle through which the money will benefit the cause.

The raffle includes three prizes. First prize is a 2008 Lexus LX 570, second prize is a Breitling watch and third prize is a 42 inch flat panel HDTV.

The money will go to granting wishes this year. Each year, Make-A-Wish grants more than 125 wishes in Oklahoma.

"Make-A-Wish is here to grant the wishes of kids that suffer with life-threatening illnesses, so we come into their life to bring hope, strength and joy to them and to their family," Parsons said. "It's just a wonderful mission, and we appreciate Lexus teaming up with us to give people an additional opportunity to support Make-A-Wish and the work that we do."

The raffle will generate 100 percent of the ticket proceeds toward the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Oklahoma, with more than 82 percent going toward making wishes.


Tickets can be purchased for $100, but only 1,600 people will be allowed to register. The drawing will be held on Jan. 17.

For more information you can call Make-A-Wish at 888-831-9474.
