Washington Premier Football Club is a non-profit organization, and all proceeds from the car raffle benefit the organization, specifically going towards complex improvements— making Washington Premier’s Complex a top tier facility in the Pacific Northwest.  

“The car raffle is our biggest single fundraiser and we could not do it without help from BMW Northwest. The partnership with Manfred and the family dealership has allowed WPFC the financial stability to improve the complex while at the same time providing players with financial needs the opportunity to play.”

The drawing for the BMW 330i was held at the 9th annual WPFC member dinner.  The lucky winner Mark and Tara Echternkamp were not present the night of the auction but were reached by phone during the event. When asked what it meant to win the car, Mark responded “This is incredible, I’ve never won any contest.  This could not have come at a better time for my family. We have 2 kids in college and was expecting to have to purchase a new vehicle within the next two years. What a blessing this is for our family and we’ll be able to continue assisting our kids in fulfilling their goals & aspirations.  To win a new BMW, it’s a dream come true.”

BMW Northwest has a real passion and dedication to the people they serve. “Giving back to the community and helping local non-profit organizations is our privilege.” stated Manfred Scharmach, President and Owner of BMW Northwest.
