Lexus for the little ones

  

Lexus for the Little Ones, organized by the MAP Foundation, is proud to announce its sixth annual raffle raising funds for children's charities throughout Kentucky. You won't want to miss this opportunity to help Kentucky's little ones. One lucky person will drive away with a new car in the color of his or her choice.* 

The drawing will be held Sunday, March 10, 2019, at 1 p.m. at Lexus of Lexington, 1264 E. New Circle Road, Lexington, Kentucky.

Over the past five years, the Lexus for the Little Ones raffle has contributed over $300,000 to Kentucky Children's Hospital in support of pediatric oncology services and renovation of the Pediatric Oncology Ocean Pod, helping to provide comfort for patients and families during treatment.

"Being able to be a small part of these children and families' journey through an unimaginable children's cancer diagnosis has been more of a gift to our foundation. We have experienced such amazing support from the community that we wanted to continue with the Lexus for the Little Ones raffle and extend support to programs that provide the best care and services for struggling youth in our community," said Rick Avare, dealer principal for Lexus of Lexington and co-founder of the MAP Foundation. 

With the Kentucky Children's Hospital Pediatric Oncology Ocean Pod completed, the MAP Foundation has been evaluating other needs within the community that support its mission to provide youth with the tools they need for success. This year, in continuation of our partnership with UK HealthCare, raffle proceeds will benefit integrative medicine and health services at Kentucky Children's as well as the Woodhill Community Center. 

The MAP Foundation was formed in 2007, guided by the principle that when youth are provided with the tools they need to achieve success, the community also benefits. The Foundation's founders have a long history of supporting programs and facilities that "give an assist" to challenged youth.

*Vehicle color selection based on availability through Lexus of Lexington at time of prize redemption.
