One lucky raffle ticket holder will get the ride of a lifetime — in the Batmobile.

El Dorado Hills resident Bob Goldsand offered up his sweet ride for the Sons of Italy Gold Country Lodge 2705 fundraiser benefiting the order’s scholarship fund. The winning ticket will be drawn on Nov. 14.

“It would be a heck of a lot of fun to ride in the Batmobile,” club President Anthony Scotch noted.

Sons of Italy Gold Country Lodge has served the community for 26 years and has about 50 members, including Goldsand. The car lover said he’s always been a fan of Batman and two years ago when he decided to buy an iconic car, the Batmobile immediately came to mind. The replica is modeled after the original 1966 Batmobile.

The raffle prize includes a 45-minute ride in the El Dorado Hills/Folsom area and a photo in the driver’s seat. Tickets are $5 each or five for $20. Purchase tickets online at sendomatic.com/batmobile or contact Scotch at [email protected]

The Sons of Italy hosts fundraisers throughout the year to fund its programs and help other charitable organizations. A sold-out Bocce Bash is set for Oct. 22. There are still seats available for the dinner portion of the event; RSVP by Oct. 10. Contact Scotch for more details. On Nov. 4 the organization hosts the Genesis Wrestling event at the Cameron Park Community Center. Tickets are available at Gcwgenesis.ticketleap.com, at El Dorado Hill Travel, 3941 Park Drive, Suite 90, or call George Frey at (916) 912-8420.
