PALM SPRINGS, Calif. -

The AIDS Assistance Program (AAP) is raffling off a 2015 Audi A3 Cabriolet from Desert European Motorcars' Audi Rancho Mirage in support of the organization's food voucher program.

The food voucher program provides nutritional support to low income men, women and children living with HIV/AIDS.

"We thought the raffle would be a fun way to help carry out our mission of feeding people who need assistance," said Mark Anton, executive director of AAP. "Thanks to the great folks of Audi Rancho Mirage for providing such a sexy, high-performance vehicle. Tickets should sell out quickly and one lucky person will drive home in a brand new Audi this fall."

Officials said only 400 raffle tickets will be sold. A single raffle tickets will cost $300, or you can purchase four raffle tickets for $1,000.
