Promptly at 9:00am in the lot at the intersection of Talbot Street and Railroad Avenue, members of the St. Michaels Rotary Club gathered to draw the winning Mustang raffle ticket. The winning ticket was drawn by St. Michaels Police Department Officer Ben Taylor with Chief Tony Smith presiding. The lucky winner is Adam Stark of Easton, MD.
This year, the raffle winner had a choice between keeping the 1965 Mustang convertible or taking twenty thousand dollars in cash. Adam and his wife Heidi Stark have opted to take the vintage Mustang.
This year’s prize was a cherry red 1965 Ford Mustang convertible fitted with a 289 “A Code” V8 engine that packs 225 horsepower. Its matching red interior is accented by a wood grain steering wheel and topped with a white soft convertible roof. Power steering, fog lamps, power front disk brakes, a rally pack, and an automatic transmission complete this truly exceptional car.
Bill Shrieves, Co-Chair, pointed out that this year the club added raffle ticket sales online and it worked. “The online sales totaled over Five Thousand Dollars and the total sales increased by 16% even with a rainy summer."
The St. Michaels Rotary Club is one of 34,000 Rotary Clubs worldwide and has been actively serving the St. Michaels and greater Bay Hundred community for 77 years. All proceeds from the Mustang raffle benefit the Club’s charitable programs, namely its College Scholarship Fund for graduates of St. Michaels High School.
