Lane says this is the first time he has ever won anything. After a few photos and videos, Lane took a test drive through the streets of Rockport before loading his prize on the trailer for the eight-hour trip back to his home in Michigan.
All 10,000 tickets were sold for this year’s raffle. People from as far away as Australia, Italy, Germany, New Zealand, Canada and all across the United States purchased tickets.
Saint Bernard Church purchased the car from ProTeam Corvette Sales in Napoleon, Ohio. Tickets will go on sale for the 26th annual Corvette raffle in January, 2014. Proceeds benefit Saint Bernard Parish and Saint Bernard Elementary School, the only parochial school in Spencer County.
