The Car Raffle Jar

We held the drawing for the Project 16:49 classic car raffle at the 2011 Beloit Autorama at 3 PM this past Sunday. Cory Winters, one of the stars of Sixteen Forty-Nine, drew the ticket before a crowd of eager attendees.  The winner — the lucky Linda Holcomb — wasn’t present, but she’s been informed of her huge win!

This raffle raised a lot of money for Project 16:49, and we’d like to thank:

Cory draws the winning ticket.

We’d especially like to thank Gary Schultz for his tremendous generosity. Gary not only donated the car to the cause but also drove all the place, selling tickets and drumming up interest in the raffle. None of this would have been possible without him!
