The Restaurant Association is raffling off an Audi A3 as part of its annual big-ticket raffle -- where you get a chance at a car, plus gift certificates to a bunch of restaurants.
I don't generally post about giveaways, but restaurants are the lifeblood for HowChow. They're only selling 325 tickets at $300 each. For that, you get a shot at the car. Plus, you get a $25 gift certificate at a bunch of Maryland restaurants, including locals at Iron Bridge Wine Co., Victoria Gastro Pub, Second Chance Saloon and the Melting Pot.
The raffle raises money to support education, including a high school culinary curriculum that requires students to work in the industry. If you're interested, check out their Web site.
