Power to drive change

The sixth Audi Foundation fund raiser gets underway.

Celebrating its fourth anniversary in 2021, the Audi Foundation kicks off the year with a raffle that not only raises much needed funds, but also gives one lucky participant the chance to drive away in a striking RS 5 Sportback.

Raising much needed funds to go towards the numerous programs the Audi Foundation supports

Since its inception in 2017, the Audi Foundation, working with its not-for-profit partners, has made a tremendous contribution to people in need right around the country, with its efforts largely funded through activities organised by Audi Australia, as well as through contributions from the national Audi Dealer Network.

Amongst these various activities are the Audi Foundation fund raising raffles, which not only serve to raise much needed funds to go towards the numerous programs the Foundation supports, but also give one lucky participant the chance to drive away in a brand new Audi as a result.

Getting 2021 off to a flying start, a brand-new Audi RS 5 Sportback worth over $176,555 (driveway) is being offered to one very fortunate participant in the raffle, and everyone who purchases a ticket will go into the draw to win it.

Tickets are priced at $50 and are available to purchase online through the Audi Foundation. All proceeds raised go towards supporting each of the Foundation’s charity partners – R U OK?, ReachOut, The Smith Family, Camp Quality, Humpty Dumpty Foundation, Charlie Teo Foundation, and The Country Education Foundation (CEF) – and their ongoing work and programs across education, youth, mental health and medical technology and research.

“The strain of the past year has seen many Australians continue to rely on the support services of our partners,” says Paul Sansom, Chairman of the Audi Foundation and Managing Director of Audi Australia.

“The Audi Foundation strives to make a positive impact on the lives of Australians through meaningful contributions to progressive medicine, education and mental health services, and it is more important now than ever that we continue to offer our support.

“We are very grateful to all those who purchase tickets in our fundraising raffles, for their generous support, and we look forward to handing over an incredible Audi RS 5 Sportback to the lucky winner.”

This striking five-door, grand tourer offers the highest standards of luxury appointment and finish as well as scintillating performance. Its 2.9-litre TFSI V6 engine with twin turbochargers develops 331kW of power and 600Nm of torque from 1900-5000rpm. That equates to a 0 to 100km/h time of just 3.9 seconds, with power going down to the road through all four wheels thanks to the latest Audi quattro system.

With its razor sharp handling and perfect composure at any speed, the Audi RS 5 Sportback is a pure driver’s car, and yet it possesses the most refined road manners and sublime ride around town when required. 

Recent events have only highlighted the need for the programs the Audi Foundation supports and the ongoing need for funds to continue the work

The RS 5 Sportback is very much a supercar that can be driven and enjoyed every day and a fitting prize for such a wonderful cause

The RS 5 Sportback boasts the very highest levels of luxury appointment and automotive technology inside its beautifully appointed cabin. With everything from Audi Smartphone Interface, Bang & Olufsen 3D Sound System (with 19 speakers, 755 watts), Digital radio DAB+ and Audi phone box light including wireless charging, the RS 5 Sportback is as much a luxury conveyance as it is a performance specialist – very much a supercar that can be driven and enjoyed every day. A fitting prize for such a wonderful cause.

Once again, the fund raiser is open to all Australian residents (with the exception of those in Western Australia), 18 years of age or older. The raffle will run from from March 17th until June 2nd, 2021, with the prize winner drawn randomly from all eligible entrants at 15:00h (AEST) on Friday June 4th at 3:00pm. 

This is the perfect opportunity to help the Audi Foundation and its partners continue to drive meaningful and positive change in the lives of those Australians most in need. And at the same time, to go into the running to drive away in the RS 5 Sportback – one of the most desirable grand tourers on the road.
