The Dubai Events and Promotions Establishment (DEPE) is giving away prizes worth millions of Dirhams in this year’s spectacular Lexus Mega Raffle held during Dubai Shopping Festival 2011. An unfailing attraction of every DSF since the first edition, the Lexus Mega Raffle has become synonymous with the Festival and has given away a massive 1361 Lexus models from DSF 1996 to DSF 2010. The Lexus brand is distributed in the UAE by the Al Futtaim Group, a key sponsor of DSF and a 2011 strategic partner.

The Lexus Mega Raffle entitles coupon buyers the dream opportunity to take home a Lexus LX570 and AED 100,000 in cash every day for 32 days of DSF. To add to the excitement, coupons collected through DSF will be entered into the draw for the grand prize where one lucky winner will get the keys to a Lexus LS600hL. Every ticket will thus have a second chance at winning an amazing prize. Each raffle coupon costs AED 200.

Ibrahim Saleh, Festivals Coordinator General and Deputy CEO of DEPE, said that the Lexus Mega Raffle remains one of the unfailing attractions of DSF. “The Lexus Mega Raffle has been an integral part of DSF since 1996 and is a prime example of the cooperation between the public and the private sectors.

Every raffle over the years has been an exciting one and it is part of our commitment in rewarding visitors to Dubai during the month long festivity.
