Vancouver, BC, August 4, 2022 — The 2022 AutismBC Raffle and 50/50 presented by Applewood Auto Group gives British Columbians a chance to purchase tickets to win a brand-new 2022 Ford Maverick Truck with proceeds supporting AutismBC. The provincial charity’s biggest annual fundraiser raises important funds for programs and services that support autistic children and adults, families, and professionals across the province.

“Only a few weeks before Sawyers 3rd Birthday he got his ASD diagnosis. Since then, it’s been a wild ride of finding the supports he needs and soon realizing we, his parents, also were needing some support, as well. AutismBC has provided us with a feeling that we are not alone, pointed us to different resources to help us out, connected us with other families in our area, linked us up with educational workshops and programs, and so much more!” – ANGIE PALMER, parent
