The Lexus Rotary Raffle was officially launched yesterday evening at a kick-off event at Lexus of South Atlanta, where General Manager, Sid Barron, welcomed Rotary Club presidents along with hosts and volunteers of the 9th annual Chair-ity fundraising event. “We are glad to make this new Lexus SUV available to raise funds to help children in this area. The Children’s Village is an important place that we are honored to support.” Barron said.

Phil Kouns, COO of The Children’s Village, expressed his gratitude at the kick-off event. “Fundraising programs like this car raffle make such a difference for The Children’s Village at Christian City. Because of faithful support from the community, we are able to minister to the needs of abused and abandoned children who now live safely on our campus,” Kouns said.
