The Limbs for Life Foundation is offering a fun and unique way for people to help it help amputees.

The Oklahoma City-based foundation is selling raffle tickets for a 1958 Cadillac Fleetwood for $50 until Feb. 26, when the winner will be drawn at its annual benefit dinner in Dallas, Texas. Only 3,500 tickets will be sold through Limbsforliferaffle.com (http://limbsforliferaffle.com) and the money raised will help fund Limbs for Lifeís programs.

Limbs for Life is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides prosthetic limbs to amputees that canít afford them. In the United States, it provides financial assistance to amputees in need. It also collects used prosthetic limbs and distributes them to amputees worldwide through its associated clinics.

The fully restored Cadillac, donated by Tim Taft of Dallas, features leather bench seats, power steering, brakes and windows and has 70,400 miles on it. Its retail price is appraised at $44,000, making the $50 price per raffle ticket a potential bargain for the winner.

Those wishing to buy raffle tickets can do so at Limbsforliferaffle.com (http://limbsforliferaffle.com) until the morning of Feb. 26. For more information on Limbs for Life, its programs and the benefit dinner in Dallas, visit Limbsforlife.org (http://limbsforlife.org).
