Gas card drawings are all the fashionContra Costa for Every Generation is offering a chance to win $5,000 in Chevron gas with its first major fundraising campaign.

The Early Bird winning ticket will go back into the drawing for the Grand Prize.

CCEG is a nonprofit group working to make local communities good places to age - to stay healthy, live independently, and lead full and productive lives. The gas gift cards are being donated and all proceeds will go toward operating costs.
Meanwhile, Danville resident Mari Walden won $1,950 worth of gas - 500 gallons - from Ford Motor Co. after she entered a drawing while getting her car serviced at Walnut Creek Ford's Quick Lane store. The nationwide sweepstakes was held to celebrate the opening of the 500th Quick Lane Tire & Auto Center. Walden was one of 10 first-prize winners from 32,000 entries. So the odds with CCEG are much better!
