USA: Garfield High charges up funding with electric car raffle

SEATTLE – Forget car washes and bake sales. Garfield High School parents have found a creative way to pump up dwindling dollars for education.

It’s an all-electric Tesla that gets 300 miles per charge and has a value of $85,000 – all yours for a hundred bucks.

For Garfield High School parents, it’s obvious the days of the bake sale are long gone. They’re offering up a Tesla with all the bells and whistles to combat scarce funding and deep cuts to educational programs.

“Because of all the budget cuts Garfield High School had to close a couple of their support systems,” says Eric Downs of the school’s PTSA.

To fight back, parents are trying to raise $80,000 to fund a career counseling and academic support service for the next year. Parents say a college guidance counselor will help some kids who are under-achieving in school.
