Performance SUV up for grabs in the name of charity

The Audi Foundation has announced details of its second major fundraising raffle, with the major prize coming in the form of an SQ5.

With tickets priced at $50 each, it's possibly the most affordable way into the company's mid-size performance SUV, which is normally priced at $99,611 before on-road costs.

Launched last year, the Audi Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation established by the marque's local division to help communities in need, also supporting a number of charities through its grants program.

The company says the foundation has directly assisted "more than 500,000" individuals and their communities. An example of this is the 50 scholarships awarded to regional students in collaboration with the Country Education Foundation Australia.

"It's only through the success of fundraising initiatives like this that we can continue to make a positive difference to individuals and communities around the country," said Anna Burgdorf, Audi Foundation board member and communications director for Audi Australia.

"The SQ5 is the ideal vehicle to headline our second major Audi Foundation raffle. Its unique combination of performance, luxury and versatility showcases the Audi brand's finest attributes and make it an incredible prize for the lucky winner."

Last year's raffle saw the $400,000 R8 V10 Plus supercar offered as the major prize
