Response to the raffle of the '55 Speedster was awesome. Tickets were sold out more than a month before the event. This Speedster was won by Edgar Loomis.


Now the sad news...
There must be something about a red Hawk.


Said red Hawk, to be awarded March, 2013 has already sold over 1/2 of the chances.
I have a number of detailed photos if you desire.
If you want a chance on a fine example of South Bend iron, they won't last long.

I've already ordered two tickets .... it would be nice to win just once as that red Hawk would look nice sitting next to the avanti.

where do proceeds of the raffle go? To the KRC, enabling the next raffle car, thence to the Studebaker National Museum in memory of Phil Brown for completion of the Woodie and other projects, Studebaker Foundation in memory of Bob Foust to be distributed for their purposes, Avanti prototypes, Flight 93 Memorial and other causes promoting the history and future of Studebakers.

Here follows a short excerpt from the KRCSDC web site.

"The Raffle Car effort that we put forth each year has delivered some very nice cars to some very surprised people. In past years, members Jim Shoul, Mary Moses, and Dianne Schlott have handled the work behind this effort. About three years ago they retired and a new Raffle Car committee was formed, and the raffle procedure was brought into the 21st century by limiting the number of tickets sold and thus giving the buyer definite odds of winning. This new committee comprised of Gordon F, Kertzel III (Chairman), Ray Albert, Tom Ehrhart, Don Mallory, Stan Richard, and Jeff Sheaffer, continue to locate and offer superior automobiles at the annual raffle. The proceeds from this annual event have allowed Keystone Region Chapter, in recent years, to make substantial contributions to the Studebaker National Museum, the Studebaker National Foundation, U.S. Troops in both Iraq and Afghanistan, and other civic and charitable causes. This event also supplements the Studebaker York Swap Meet, which has been presented in York, Pa for the last 30 years. The swap meet has had a number of Chairmen, including Frank McCarthy who has been in that position for over 13 years. He is assisted by an able team of veteran Studebaker nuts whose names are listed in the Swap Meet section of the web site. The Studebaker York Swap Meet is, as it has always been, admission free, and is a service to Studebaker owners everywhere; including those who are not yet members of Keystone."

Limiting the number of chances provides known odds. Changing those odds would constitute fraud.
