Big Sister Association of Greater Boston held its 19th Annual BMW Car Raffle on Friday, July 20th. In an unanticipated turn of events, Big Sister’s Board President, Dolores Mitchell, was the lucky winner of the 328i convertible. Mitchell, who has been buying tickets for the past several years and has never won a raffle before, decided to donated her winnings back to the agency.
“This is the kind of contribution I have always wanted to make to Big Sister. Good fortune has allowed me to do it today,” Mitchell said.
Deborah Re, Chief Executive Officer at Big Sister, said “Dolores has given her heart and soul to this organization, and now she is generously giving her winnings to us as well!”
In addition to the car, Big Sister also raffled off a number of additional prizes which went to four other Big Sister supporters. Big Sister sold more than 1500 tickets this year, making it the most successful raffle to date. All proceeds from the raffle will go towards Big Sister’s mentoring programs for girls.
Congratulations to everyone who won and thank you to everyone who purchased a ticket; and a very big thank you to Dolores Mitchell!
