91-Year-olD wins car donated by Checkered Flag Donates car to help kids
Eugene Adams, 91, pulled up to St. Mary’s Home in a 25-year-old Jeep. He drove away in a brand new Toyota Corolla.
Our good friends at Checkered Flag donated the silver 2016 Toyota Corolla for our Auxiliary Board to give away to support the children and young adults of St. Mary’s Home and The Albero House. The winning ticket was drawn during the Auxiliary’s 11th annual gala an auction on April 16, 2016.
Adams bought the winning ticket in the drawing, which raised about $20,000 to help 100 children and young adults with severe disabilities who live at St. Mary’s.
Auxiliary Board President Mollie Pavlik handed over the keys to Adams when his daughter brought him to St. Mary’s to sign paperwork to take ownership of the car. She told him she was very excited that he had won.
“YOU’RE excited?” Adams replied with a grin.
Todd Collins, general manager of Checkered Flag BMW, arranged the giveaway and was on hand to greet Adams and show him some of the car’s features. This was the sixth year in a row that Checkered Flag donated a car to the Auxiliary raffle.
Thank you to everyone who bought tickets! Your generosity has a direct impact on the care of the children and young adults who live here.
