Benz Given for Charity

Posted: Updated:
KENNEWICK, Wash. -- A Mercedes Benz is raffled off, all for a good cause. Our very own Christine Brown had the winning ticket. 200 people bought $250 tickets to try and win the 2008 Mercedes Benz C-Class Sedan.

All the money was donated to charity, with 60% going to United Way, 20% to the Boys and Girls Club, and 20% to the Hispanic Achievement Program. The event was held at the Three Rivers Convention Center.

KNDU's and KNDO's Christine Brown did have the winning ticket, but she sold her ticket to make more money for charity. That ticket later won the Mercedes.

Overall, about $75,000 dollars was made for charity Saturday night.
