2018 Toyota Spectacular Car Raffle Winner


The Tynen family and their new Toyota RAV4 XLE

Mylee purchased the winning ticket – ticket #3697 – which was drawn on Saturday, April 14that the annual Torrance Education Foundation Gala Dinner. She is the lucky winner of a gorgeous 2018 RAV4 XLE Hybrid All-Wheel-Drive SUV, graciously provided by Toyota North America and DCH Toyota of Torrance.

Mylee teaches 2ndgrade at Hickory Elementary School in Torrance!  “I really thought it was a prank,” says Mylee. “My Principal and Assistant Principal attended the TEF Gala, and they texted me when my name was called, but I didn’t believe it!”

Well, Mylee, you can believe it.

Many thanks from all of us at TEF to everyone who purchased Raffle Tickets and helped raise $48,000 for Torrance Schools. Of this amount, more than $27,000 was donated directly back to individual schools and school groups in TUSD, and the remainder will provide crucial funds for TEF programs for TUSD teachers and students.

We are very grateful for the generosity of Toyota North America, our Car Raffle partner for the past fourteen years!
