Between our beautiful Amish countryside, the impressive Elkhart County 4-H Fair and our title as RV Capital of the World, it is no wonder that camping has a special meaning in our community.

ADEC is thrilled to be able to celebrate Michiana’s legacy of RVs and camping by raffling off a custom Airstream Sport travel trailer courtesy of Thor Industries. Proceeds from the raffle will go to helping people with intellectual and developmental disabilities lead lives full of choice and possibility.

Beginning this fall, ADEC will release 1,952 raffle tickets for a chance to win a brand new Aistream Sport, valued at over $51,000. Why 1,952? It represents the year that ADEC was founded — the year that a group of brave families came together and decided their children deserved to be a part of the community.

For just $100, you can purchase a ticket for a 1:1,952 chance of winning an awesome towable.

Guests at ADEC’s Annual Celebration (save the date for Oct. 26) will get first dibs on tickets, with the rest going for sale to the general public on Nov. 1.

But of course, it would not be an ADEC contest without some funky Art by ADEC. Our clients will be painting a whimsical design on the Airstream before the raffle, and we need your help to decide which design to choose. Vote on Facebook by using the corresponding reaction on the post below, or leave a comment on this blog post with your top pick. Cast your vote before 4 p.m. Wednesday.

The winner of the raffle will be announced the week before The ADEC Ball — an evening of dancing, friendship and fun at the RV Hall of Fame — on April 20, 2018.
