Las Vegas Entertainer of the Year and The Mirage Hotel headliner Danny Gans who has personally donated $100,000 to the American Red Cross to support victims of Hurricane Katrina, felt he wanted to do more. He has now donated a 2001 Black Z-06 Corvette for a raffle to raise money for the hurricane survivors. The raffle is being held at The Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas where he performs five nights a week.

All proceeds from the raffle will be donated to the American Red Cross and the MGM MIRAGE Voice Foundation Hurricane Katrina Recovery Fund.

The Corvette is a high performance model with only 2,600 miles. It's fully loaded and customized complete with Gans' logo on the center wheel caps. It features the Danny Gans signature colors of black & red. A total of $65,000.00 has been invested in the vehicle, which is on display in the lobby of the Danny Gans Theater at The Mirage Hotel.

Tickets are $20.00 each or $100.00 for 6 tickets. Raffle tickets may be purchased at the Danny Gans box office in The Mirage Hotel with cash or credit card. Out-of-state purchases may be made with credit cards only by calling 1-800-214-4267.

"This car has been a source of joy for me since the day I bought it, but it will give me more joy knowing that I am helping my fellow Americans in need," Gans said.

The drawing will be held on Sunday, October 30th at 7:00 p.m. Ticket holders do not have to be present to win. Gans will draw the winning ticket and phone the winner.
