CHESAPEAKE, Va. — A woman who friends and coworkers say is always looking out for others got a big surprise Saturday.

Veneeca Jeffries works with ForKids in Chesapeake. She does a lot for the organization, and recently decided she would purchase a car to use as a raffle prize in a fundraiser. 

A spokesperson for the auction said that Jeffries was planning on buying the car with her own money, but Integrity Auto Group in Chesapeake decided to donate the car for the raffle. 

The big surprise for Ms. Jeffries was arranged for Saturday afternoon when she thought she was going to the dealership to buy the car.

There are families who will be moving into their own housing from the shelter at the end of the month, and Jeffries wants to use the money from the fundraiser to present those families with a U-Haul truck full of cleaning supplies and household items. 

The raffle will be held at Integrity Auto Group on Saturday November 26, at 8 a.m., and tickets are $50 a piece. Five hundred tickets will be sold for the raffle.
