Weeds star Kevin Nealon has recorded a series of humorous public service announcements as part of a fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Club of Lake Tahoe that will raffle off a $650,000 home.

The goal of the raffle is to raise $1 million for the club housed in an old middle school in South Lake Tahoe, and about 1,100 tickets have been sold so far – but organizers say 7,000 must be sold by March 1 to make the $1 million mark.

“It sounded like a great cause,” Nealon said in a recent interview with the Las Vegas Sun. “I love that area up there. It’s close to my heart.”

Nealon – who is well known for participating in charity golf events – recorded four PSAs in November.

“He plays in the American Century Championship golf tournament each year, so we figured why not ask a celebrity who’s practically a local to help our cause?” said Karen Houser, executive director of the local Boys and Girls Club. “Not to mention he’s a father and shares our concern for helping children.”

“Even in these times of nonexistent credit, there are plenty of ways to get into a home, including that trusty oversized key known as the crow bar,” Nealon announces in one ad. “Yes, but a simpler more legal method is buying a $150 raffle ticket from the Boys and Girls Club that may win you a $650,000 South Lake Tahoe home.”

The 2,100-square-foot home has three bedrooms with views of the mountains and forest, and the odds of winning it with a single $150 ticket are approximately 1 in 7,000.
