Welcome to the 2016 Ouray Jeep Raffle!
It's time again to win a Jeep in Ouray!
What’s special about this year’s Jeep? It’s the Black Bear Pass Edition!
We finally have a Jeep that is branded for the San Juan Mountains, and its limited run has sold out quickly. Add to that our add-on's like a 3" lift kit, hard top, Black Bear decal and AEV suspension and you have a spectacular vehicle to that's ready for anything the San Juan Mountains have in store. The Firecracker Red color will make sure that you're turning heads wherever you drive.
Here's how Jeep described this extra special edition: "High in the Colorado Rocky Mountains, overlooking the village of Telluride, is one of the most infamous trails in the world – Black Bear Pass. Drivers who take it on get breathtaking views, heart-stopping switchbacks and more thrills than they could ever imagine. Only open a few months of the year, this trail will take you [from Ouray over the Million Dollar Highway], past abandoned mines and a spectacular waterfall, all on a ribbon of shale only wide enough for a single vehicle. It’s as intense a ride as you’ll find anywhere. And a perfect namesake for this Jeep® brand vehicle created for off-road enthusiasts.”
We'll get some glamour shots of the new Jeep in the mountains up for you soon - it's still getting its bells and whistles installed but the photo above is a pretty good fit for how it's going to look.
For over half a century, the Ouray Jeep Raffle has been a successful, community-oriented fundraiser that supports local student scholarships, Ouray fireworks on the Fourth of July and New Year's Eve, free community events and collaborative marketing and economic development efforts for Ouray.
As usual the drawing will take place at the annual Oktoberfest Celebration at the Ouray Community Center on Saturday, October 8, 2016 at 9 PM.
As usual, raffle prices are: 1 ticket for $5, 3 tickets for $10 and 7 tickets for $20. Tickets are available at the Ouray Visitor's Center, at participating local Ouray Chamber Resort Association member businesses and online at the Ouray, Colorado Shopify store. You may also request tickets by mail by sending a check or money order for your tickets (made out to "OCRA"), your contact information (don't forget your telephone number and email) and a self-addressed stamped envelope to: OCRA PO BOX 145 Ouray, CO 81427.
