Detroit organization raffling off ambulance for overseas charity
World Medical Relief drawing takes place in October, winner must give stocked rig to charity
A Detroit-based charity is raffling off a fully stocked ambulance -- though the winner must be willing to see it go to a charity outside the United States.
World Medical Relief said the unusual raffle kicks off its 60th anniversary and the drawing will take place in October. One thousand tickets will be sold, and they are $50 apiece.
Shipping costs are included, as are handling and preparation of custom documents.
World Medical Relief officials say they expect most tickets will be bought by medical missionaries or members of overseas charities. But they say the contest is open to philanthropists among the general public.
