Raffle Bus #33

This could be your bus!

Every year we raffle off a vintage VW Bus at our main event, The Jerome Jamboree in September (usually the 3rd week). Raffle tickets ($1 each) are sold only at the event and you must be present to win wearing the correct event wristband! Anything less is a deal-breaker!
