Working for change
The third Audi Foundation raffle is underway
with an RS 5 Coupé on offer as the grand prize.
29 October, 2018
Furthering the important work of the Audi Foundation, the third Audi Foundation fund-raising raffle is now underway, and with an Audi RS 5 Coupé valued at $185,000 on offer. For just the $50 price of a ticket, come December 18 when it’s drawn, the raffle will not only help the Foundation and its partner charities continue their work, but will prove particularly rewarding for one entrant.
Funds raised will enable the Foundation to help continuing funding programs with its charitable partners around the country, making a tangible difference to those in need, and with the RS 5 Coupé announced as the prize, supporting charitable organisations has another distinct upside.
Hailed as one of the great grand tourers, the Audi RS 5 Coupé is the perfect blend of high-performance, superb handling and luxury appointment. With sharp, aggressive styling and performance developed on the race track, the RS 5 Coupé is the embodiment of Audi Sport’s rich motorsport DNA, yet it boasts superb interior appointment, state-of-the-art automotive technology, infotainment and connectivity. A tractable, elegant luxury vehicle around town, but a high-performance specialist on a twisting mountain road or on the track.
Its sonorous 2.9 TFSI V6 engine is a work of art, producing 331kW of power and an massive 600Nm of torque, that propels the sports coupé from 0 to 100km/h in just 3.9 seconds.

"Since its inception in 2017, the Audi Foundation has actively assisted over 1.5 million Australians through its work with partner charities."
Since its inception in 2017, the Audi Foundation has actively assisted over 1.5 million Australians through its work with partner charities. Funded by the Audi Australia national dealer network and fund-raising initiatives, the Audi Foundation has built strong partnerships with a number of proven, national charities with the aim of helping those in need in the communities in which the brand operates.
Having built strong partnerships with charities such as ReachOut, RUOK?, The Charlie Teo Foundation, The Smith Family and Camp Quality to name just some, real inroads have been made in helping those in need, with programs designed to work long term and continue to deliver results.
From helping mental health organisation, ReachOut, fund a new online support website, to assisting The Charlie Teo Foundation in its ongoing fight against brain cancer and supporting research to find a cure, the programs are many and varied, but all working to target specific areas and help those in need.
Whether it be working with the Country Education Foundation to provide scholarships for young people to study and realise their potential, to working with Mission Australia to help women find employment in non-traditional areas, the programs are making a real difference. Showing young people the myriad employment opportunities in areas they may not have considered through The Smith Family’s Work Inspiration programs, or dispelling the stigma around cancer, partnering with Camp Quality, each program makes a tangible difference to the many affected and make a real difference to individuals, families and communities.
