Congratulations to Brendan Dawson, the 2012 Eat’n Park Caring For Kids Car Raffle Winner!

Every year during our Caring for Kids Campaign, we raffle tickets for a chance to win a brand new car, and the selection of the winner is one of the most anticipated events following the campaign.  Back in December, we visited Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC to pick the winning ticket. Last week, we got to present the winner, Brendan Dawson of Cheswick, with his brand new 2013 Ford Escape!

Brendan has a great story. His Mom actually bought his winning ticket from our Waterworks location! Every year, she buys one ticket for each of her children and this year, Brendan was the lucky one! Check out Brendan’s new ride:

We’d like to thank our friends at the Neighborhood Ford Store for graciously donating a vehicle for this raffle. This was a record-breaking year for our car raffle, with over 77,000 tickets sold and $154,000 raised for our Caring for Kids Campaign, which benefits local children’s hospitals. Also, a special thanks to Shults Ford in Harmarville for hosting our car presentation!

We’d also like to thank our friends at KDKA for coming out last week to interview Brendan and his family. You can see the story here.

Congratulations, Brendan!
