The BMW CCA Foundation funds a driving program for teens to gain skills, safety, and experience behind the wheel. I am a big believer in this cause and the safety of our teen drivers. There is also a drawing for those who contribute to this cause. Here is the letter about the BMW CCA Foundation from the president of the foundation:
The Foundation needs your help and support in the current Spring Sponsorship Drive, and by purchasing a drawing, you might win a new BMW or $45,000 in cash! Our Spring Sponsorship Drive principally supports the Tire Rack Street Survival teen driving safety program. Your purchase of an entry drawing helps offset the cost of instruction of good driving skills to 1,000’s of teens in the Foundation’s hands-on teen driving program.
The current Sponsorship drive is lagging behind, meaning that your odds of winning a partial award are even greater. (Partial award odds are based on number of tickets sold.) The odds of winning that new BMW are 1 in 8,500, so that for $100 (7 drawing tickets), your odds of winning are better than 1 in 1,250. There are bonus ticket entries for larger purchases – just use the pop-down menu on the web site. Proceeds of this sponsorship drive directly offset the costs of each Street Survival® school such as the one hosted by the Connecticut Valley Chapter and held in association with Consumer Reports at CR facilities in CT and shown in the picture below. A report of the school with video can be found here.
An excellent news article with information about a recent TRSS school was published by the Baltimore Examiner. This school was hosted by the National Capital Chapter.
TRSS schools give teens across the U.S. the driving tools and “hands-on” experience to become safer, smarter drivers. In addition to the classroom experience, trained and qualified in-car driving instructors work with each student. Support the efforts of the Foundation’s safe teen driving program by purchasing an entry drawing that could win you a choice of:
- Z2011 BMW Z4 sDrive30i
- X2011 BMW X3 xDrive35i
- V2011 Chevy Volt (electric)
- C2011 Chevy Corvette Coupe
OR $45,000 CASH!

Your participation in is greatly appreciated and will help us to continue our worthwhile activities and perhaps best of all, your sponsorship of the Foundation and our teen safe driving program might win you that new BMW or $45,000 cash.
