1868 Foundation Raffling of New Chevy Silverado at State Fair


There are a few more days remaining to purchase a raffle ticket for a brand new Chevy Silverado thanks to the Nebraska State Fair 1868 Foundation. 

Nebraskans have until 11:59 p.m. Sunday night, Sept. 3, to purchase their raffle tickets for a chance to win a fully loaded $65,000 2023 Chevy Silverado Crew Cab RST 4.0 Diesel Pickup Truck from Tom Dinsdale Automotive. The truck is currently on display at Earl May Fair Square at the Nebraska State Fair. 

“We can’t wait to see the lucky winner leave the State Fair in this brand-new pick up,” said Lindsey Koepke, Nebraska State Fair 1868 Foundation Executive Director. “This is the first time we have tried a raffle of this magnitude and it brings us happiness knowing one lucky Nebraskan will have a life-changing opportunity thanks to the Nebraska State Fair 1868 Foundation.”
All proceeds from the raffle will be directed towards future improvements for the Nebraska State Fair. In 2023, the 1868 Foundation made these significant investments: 
• $150,000 toward the LED screens in the barns and Five Points Bank Arena
• $40,000 toward 4-H & FFA Divisional Awards
• $25,000 toward volunteer coordination efforts  

Raffle tickets are $25 each and available for purchase online at www.1868foundation.org/raffle or by scanning the raffle’s QR code while at the State Fair. There is no limit to the number of raffle tickets that may be purchased. The drawing is at 9 a.m. Sunday, September 3, at the fair. The winner will be presented with this brand-new Chevy Silverado at 2:30 p.m. at Earl May Fair Square.
