Sunflower Diversified Services sponsors drawing for new vehicle


If a new vehicle is on the wish list for next year, local and area residents are encouraged to take a chance on winning a Chevy Trailblazer ACTIV, while simultaneously supporting children and adults with special needs.

Sunflower Diversified Services is hosting this fundraiser; Ehler Chevrolet, Hoisington, is a sponsor. Sunflower serves infants, toddlers and adults with developmental disabilities and delays in central Kansas.

Tickets for the drawing are $25 each or five for $100. They can be purchased now at Sunflower’s Westside Market/UPS Store, 5523 10th; Ehler Chevrolet; or by visiting www.sunflowerdiv.com. Click on the link at the top of the page.

“Our colleague, Amanda Urban, suggested this type of drawing as a possible fundraiser,” said Cody Harris, director of planned giving and community support. “This is a first for Sunflower but we jumped at the idea.

“We appreciate Amanda’s initiative and our non-profit agency’s Foundation, which has given us its full support.”

Proceeds from ticket sales go to the Sunflower Diversified Services Foundation, which purchased the vehicle. The Foundation exists to support Sunflower.

The 2022 Trailblazer ACTIV, which is a subcompact crossover SUV, is valued at $29,540.

Only 5,000 tickets will be sold. The drawing is set for 6:45 p.m. March 30, 2023, during Sunflower’s pancake feed at Prince of Peace Parish Center. Ticket holders do not have to be present to win.

Trailblazer on display Anyone interested in a close-up look at the SUV is welcome at Dry Lake Brewing, 1305 Main in Great Bend, Saturday, Oct. 15, starting at 11 a.m. Pulled-pork sandwiches will be served; the chef is Micah Ehler.

“This barbecue lunch is part of our fundraising effort,” Harris commented. “We hope people come on down to have a bite and purchase some raffle tickets for this beautiful SUV.

“The support of this generous community allows us to offer more services to adults, as well as the children at our Early Education Center and Incredible Years Preschool,” he emphasized. “Tax dollars provide a lot of support but not enough. Our fundraisers help fill the financial gaps for adaptive equipment, medical and dental services, and more.”

For more information, contact Harris by calling 620-792-1325.

Sunflower serves infants, toddlers and adults in Barton, Pawnee, Rice, Rush and Stafford counties. It is in its 57th year.
