PCCC: A $25 TLC Properties ticket could win new Ford F-150 or $10,000


TLC Properties-2017 logo

Imagine cruising around the Ozarks in a brand-new, Ford F-150 XLT – or banking $10,000 — and telling friends that you won either one on a $25 ticket.

The PGA Web.com Tour’s Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper is again offering both grand prizes in the popular TLC Properties Charity Sweepstakes. Executive Director Jerald Andrews on Monday announced the annual program, in which ticket buyers have at least a 1-in-8,000 chance of winning either the truck or the money.

Charities of this year’s PCCC are now selling the TLC Properties Charity Sweepstakes tickets, and every dollar will go to the ticket-buyer’s charity of choice. Winners will be announced after play on “Go Blue for Autism Championship Sunday” on the 18th green of Highland Springs Country Club. For a list of charities, check out this link.


Because the $25 ticket guarantees entry into the PCCC all four days (Aug. 10-13, 2017), it is actually a $40 value. The ticket buyer also is entered to win one of 500 daily prizes with a value of at least $25 each, to be announced on the tournament website, pricecuttercc.org.

The tournament, a key stop on the PGA’s Web.com Tour, has gifted $13.7 million to Ozarks children’s charities in the past 27 years. To support the tournament in any way, call 417-887-3400.

“We had tremendous feedback last year when, for the first time, we gave away a Ford F-150,” Andrews said. “It made sense again this year to offer another Ford F-150 because we heard stories of folks driving down the road, turning around to check out the truck and then buying a $25 ticket. And, if you don’t happen to win the truck, you still have a shot to win $10,000.”

A 4×2 Supercab, the Ford F-150 XLT offers numerous features, including a 2.7 liter V6 Ecoboost engine that gets up to 26 miles per gallon on the highway. It also includes: a rearview camera, class IV trailer hitch, 17-inch silver-plated aluminum wheels, interior gray cloth, 3.31 electronic lock RR axel, black platform running boards, select shift transmission, air conditioning, heat, AM/FM stereo, halogen headlamps, locking removable tailgate, power locks and windows, cruise control and four-wheel disc brakes with ABS. Its roomy interior, especially with a back bench seat, is great for a family.

The sweepstakes are a portion of the tournament’s overall haul annually, with the potential to generate $200,000. A year ago, the tournament gifted more than $905,000 to 45 local children’s charities.
