Turnquist Partners Realtors, Inc. (“Turnquist Partners”), Austin’s leading real estate brokerage, sponsors the Rotary Club of Lake Travis (“RCLT”), a local part of an international service organization, 12th annual car raffle. Proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards college scholarships for Lake Travis High School students and other projects supported by the Rotary Club of Lake Travis. Turnquist Partners has been an event sponsor of the car raffle for 12 years and from this event, has been able to give a scholarship each year named the Turnquist Partners Excellence Award to one lucky Lake Travis High School student. This award could mean the difference of attending college or not for the student that is selected.
Not only does Turnquist Partners agree to sponsor the car raffle, but about 20 to 30 of their agents participate each year in the car raffle. The company will then match the agent’s contributions up to $2,500.
“Turnquist Partners is the single largest sponsor of this fundraising effort and has raised over $80,000 for scholarships in the last 12 years,” says Kathryn Scarborough, President and Realtor of Turnquist Partners. “The Lake Travis community recognizes Turnquist Partners as a supporter of the community and a good local business.”
The drawing for the car raffle is being held on November 15, 2013. The winner of the raffle gets a trip to Stuttgart Germany where they will: tour the Mercedes Benz museum and factory, receive their choice of a new Mercedes Benz C Class or GLK, and take a five day driving tour of Bavaria stopping at five star hotels along the way. At the end of their five day driving tour their new car is shipped to the Mercedes Benz of Austin dealership where the winner can pick up their new car.
