Great Cause, Great Prize: Special Olympics MT Raffling New Harley
Most of us have probably purchased a raffle ticket for Special Olympics Montana's annual Chevy pickup truck giveaway. The 2021 winner was Kandace Kanola from Butte. The giveaway has raised a lot of money for 27 years, and even the runner-up prizes are fantastic. Now, for the first time ever, Special Olympics Montana is raffling off a brand-new Harley Davidson Street Glide.
The 2021 Street Glide is valued at $24,000.
Copper Canyon Harley Davidson in Butte provided the shiny-black Harley and the winner will also receive $3,000 towards a custom paint job - OR - $3,000 in accessories. Tickets can be purchase at the dealership, online HERE or you can stop by Billings Bike Night on 7/21 (High Horse Saloon) and 7/28 (Squire Lounge) and get your $20 tickets from a Special Olympics representative. Only 6,000 tickets will be sold.
