CEO Bill Shumard and SOSC athlete Krystal Sylvia joined us live to pull the winner’s names for the Special Olympics Southern California’s 5th annual Dream House Raffle, offering dream vacations or $5,000 in cash.

Tickets are $150 each, 3-packs for $400, or 5-packs for $550 .

Known as an oasis for Hollywood’s elite, Calabasas is the epitome of luxury, dotted with horse stables, polo fields, vineyards, tennis courts and hiking trails. Among the highlights of the 9,000 square foot residence is an outdoor living paradise featuring 360-degree views, an infinity pool, wooded trails leading to a basketball and tennis court, and native landscaping throughout the property, including a private vineyard and Koi pond. Inside, the home is spacious, bright and airy, with a grand frescoed entrance, vaulted ceilings, gourmet kitchen and open floor plan. Multiple balconies, a guest house, housekeeper’s quarters, and even a “man cave” complete the home’s impressive list of features. As the raffle enters into its fifth year, the fundraiser continues to grow in scope and size, adding thousands of dollars in luxury vacations, cars, electronics and cash prizes, keeping the odds of winning to 1 in 50.

The 2013 Special Olympics Dream House Raffle netted more than $2M for the organization. All net proceeds from the 2014 Dream House Raffle will benefit the nearly 15,000 individuals with intellectual disabilities in Southern California, impacting Special Olympics athletes from San Diego to greater Los Angeles county (LA, OC,  Inland Empire) and as far north as Bakersfield and San Luis Obispo. Special Olympics Southern California has been changing lives through the power of sport for more than 40 years and offers opportunities for children and adults with intellectual disabilities to participate in year-round sports training and competition.

Special Olympics Southern California appreciates the support of its year-round Mission. Partners: KTLA, Law Enforcement Torch Run, Summit Entertainment, Mattel, and The Vons Foundation. For more information about how to compete, coach or contribute, visit their website.
