MELBOURNE – Feb 17, 2014: GM Holden and the company’s Victorian Dealer Network have teamed up with Woolworths to raise money for the annual Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal.

Holden, the Melbourne Holden Dealer Associations (MHDA) and Victorian Rural dealers have jointly funded the donation of a major raffle prize, an all-new Holden Trax LTZ valued at $31,690*.

All 54 of Holden’s Victorian dealers are participating in this great raffle for a fantastic cause, with raffle tickets on sale at Woolworths stores throughout Victoria until the 9 March 2014.

A total of 200,000 tickets are available for the raffle at just $2 each, meaning a whopping $400,000 in potential funds for the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal being held on 18 April 2014.

The winner will be notified on 14 April 2014 and will be presented with their grand prize of a brand new Holden Trax LTZ on live television during the appeal event on Good Friday, 18 April.

“The Good Friday Appeal is a fantastic event that we’re extremely proud to support,” said Phil Brook, Executive Director – Vehicle Sales, Service and Marketing.

“Holden has been a sponsor of the Good Friday Appeal for eight years and we’re delighted to be part of it again.”

There are also two runners-up prizes up for grabs, with the second prize $4000 of Woolworths Wish Gifts Cards and $1000 in Wish Gift Cards as third prize.

The all-new Holden Trax small SUV offers best-in-class technology, standout styling and outstanding fuel economy. Growing Holden’s SUV line up to four models, Trax is offered in two trim levels, the LS and LTZ.

Every Trax model features as standard a seven-inch touch-screen with MyLink embedded apps, rear view camera, rear parking sensors, six airbags and Bluetooth™ phone and audio streaming.

Trax features the same fuel efficient 1.8 litre DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder petrol engine as the Holden Cruze and is paired with a five speed manual transmission (LS only) to deliver fuel economy of just 7.0 litres per 100 kilometres.

*Quoted driveaway price includes Prestige Paint, stamp duty, dealer delivery and 12 months registration in Victoria.
