Get it in gear ...

The Drive for Schools fundraiser starts on September 14th. All TPCS families participate by asking friends, relatives, neighbors and co-workers to buy tickets for a chance to win a new Toyota Prius C or Subaru Outback or $25,000 - as well as many other incredible prizes donated by generous local businesses.

The event is generously co-sponsored by the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and the Capitola Auto Mall and has raised more than $4 million dollars for Santa Cruz county schools. Tierra Pacifica's goal this year is to bring in $25,000. PLEASE HELP!

100% of the money goes to support Tierra Pacifica programs and facilities.

PRIZES - I can win what? This year, the Grand Prize winner will choose between a Toyota Prius C, a Subaru Outback, or $25,000 cash. Many other local businesses donated wonderful prizes as well. Winners will be announced at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk on Sunday, October 29th. You do not need to be present to win.

TICKET PRICE - Price for a chance to win is $5 for single ticket or 6 tickets for $25, paid by cash or check to TPCS.  Credit card orders are accepted for out-of-town buyers for minimum orders of $25. Use credit card order form or Paypal Button on "Buy Tickets Here" section in the menu.

WHO DO I SELL TO? - Ask your friends, relatives and co-workers. Send an e-mail blast. Post on your Facebook page. Tweet via Twitter! Help out selling tickets with other families.

WHEN? The fundraiser runs from September 14th until October 18th. The grand prize winner is announced at the Boardwalk on Sunday October 29th. You do NOT need to be present to win.

HOW DO I GET MORE TICKETS? - There are two ways:
