Temple Beth Abraham raffling off red MustangBy Canton Citizen
Dream no more: Driving around town in a brand-new 2012 red Ford Mustang may become a reality for some lucky winner. In collaboration with Rodman Ford, Temple Beth Abraham is holding a raffle for an open-end two-year lease of a new Mustang. Purchasing a raffle ticket will not only give you a chance to be in the driver’s seat of this classic automobile, but you will help provide support to an institution that has been part of the community since 1914.
Temple member Ken Gordon is so excited about this thrilling fundraising project. “This is a great fundraiser that Temple Beth Abraham is bringing to our community,” explained Gordon. “Each ticket will be $100, and only a limited number of tickets — no more than 400 — will be sold, therefore increasing the odds of winning the car.”
Fundraising Chairman Larry Finklestone adds, “However, if the winner prefers a cash payout of $10,000, that is also an option as long as 225 tickets are sold. If fewer than 225 tickets are purchased, the prize will become a 50/50 cash raffle with a maximum payout of $10,000 (depending on how many tickets are sold). This raffle is open to anyone who would like to purchase a ticket. Our goal is to invite the entire community to participate.”
Parked outside Temple Beth Abraham, the Mustang that is being raffled can be viewed. Temple Vice President Rick Gomolka invites people interested in purchasing a raffle ticket to visit the website at www.TBAFord.org to review complete rules, terms and conditions.
“Rodman Ford is happy to help Temple Beth Abraham with its fundraiser,” said Mike Wagner, Rodman Ford’s vice president of sales. “The Mustang is one of our most coveted automobiles — we are thrilled to be able to work with the temple to make this dream come true for a lucky winner.”
Ticket sales have begun and will continue until June 3. We will announce the winner at a gala event honoring synagogue founders; however, the winner does not have to be present. The winning raffle ticket holder will be notified within two days of the June 3 drawing.
Rodman Ford celebrates its 52nd year in business and is proud to be considered one of the top automobile dealerships in the area. President Don Rodman is not only a businessman; he is also a major philanthropist, leading his efforts with the Rodman Ride for Kids.
