Claremont resident wins Toyota Prius in CEF raffle

Anna Asker of  Claremont recently drove off in a brand-new Toyota Prius after entering the 2015 Claremont Educational Foundation (CEF) raffle. The contest, which benefits Claremont schools, affords one winner a new car donated by Claremont Toyota. 

This year’s raffle saw 1,501 tickets sold and raised over $27,000. Claremont High School Class of 2015 sold the most tickets at 397, and Sycamore Elementary School came in second place with 100 raffle tickets sold. 

Ms. Asker is the assistant director of donor stewardship at Pomona College and a long time Claremont resident.  She and her husband came to Claremont so he could attend Claremont Graduate University and they ended up staying.  The Askers have two daughters, both Claremont High graduates. Ms. Asker bought the winning ticket from Julia Zuker-Brunzell, the raffle chair, at the city’s Earth Day festivities just one day before the raffle. 

Richard Chute, CEF board president , said “this event is possible because of the support and involvement of the whole community. This support demonstrates our community’s commitment to enriching the quality of our children’s education. Throughout the year, we have many opportunities for people and businesses to step up and participate and we are grateful for the ongoing commitment of the entire community. Claremont Toyota is an excellent example of a loyal and generous partner.”
