PEORIA (25 News Now) - The City of East Peoria has big plans for Levee Park. But to get the job done, the city needs some big money.

With the park entering phase two of its three-phase construction plan, all but the final phase has the funding necessary. The East Peoria Community Foundation has teamed up with Uftring Chevrolet in Washington, to raffle off a car. Uftring donated a 70th Anniversary Limited-Edition Corvette to be the centerpiece of the raffle.

While the main goal of the raffle is to raise money for the project, East Peoria Community Foundation President Susan Portscheller hopes it will get people excited about donating to their community. “We’re just hoping this sets the stage for more people, generous citizens and businesses in our area to step forward right now and make a donation. Help push us over the line, and next year we can be building the third and last phase.”

The foundation hopes to raise nine hundred thousand dollars for the park’s final phase.

Tickets are one hundred dollars each, and only twenty-five hundred will be sold. If you’d like to enter for a chance to win the car, you can visit www.WinYourCorvette.com
