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.
