(BRAZIL) - Indiana sheriffs' offices are raffling a RAM 1500 pickup truck to raise funds for their new Youth Ranch, where they will mentor future law enforcement officers and bond with at-risk kids.

The $45,000 2016 truck is sponsored in part by John Jones Auto Group of Corydon, Greensburg, Salem and Scottsburg.

Raffle tickets are just $2, three for $5, seven for $10, 15 for $20, 38 for $50 and 80 tickets for $100.

Each county's sheriff's office statewide has a limited supply of tickets. Donors may also send checks to the Indiana Sheriffs' Youth Ranch, c/o Indiana Sheriffs' Association, 147 E. Maryland St., Indianapolis, IN 46204.

For 38 years, sheriffs and deputies have hosted career and leadership camps for Indiana middle schoolers. The new Indiana Sheriffs' Youth Ranch, now under development in rural West Central Indiana, will be the permanent site of those camps - which are expected to expand to more days per week and more weeks per summer.

Drawing for the RAM 1500 will be at 12 noon on Dec. 15 at John Jones Auto Group's Police Pursuit Division, 1520 S. Jackson St., in Salem. The lucky winner will be notified by telephone or email and publicized via traditional and social media.

For more information, call the Youth Ranch toll-free at (800) 622-4779.
