Wheels West donates car for local Sober Grad

Friday, April 24, 2015 — When Lassen County graduating seniors gather for Sober Graduation at the Lassen County Fairgrounds on June 5, the biggest prize that awaits them will be a car donated by Wheels West.

This year’s vehicle is a beautiful 2009 Toyota Corolla LE with custom 17-inch wheels and tires and rear spoiler — the perfect vehicle for a new graduate going off to college.

Seniors selected for the drawing at Sober Graduation get a car key, and the student with the key that starts the vehicle gets to drive it home after filling out some paperwork. For many seniors, a chance at winning the Sober Grad car is the high point of the evening — designed to create a safe, alcohol- and drug-free event where every graduating senior in the county can celebrate this important milestone.
