All American Car Raffle winner Larissa Goodwin arrived at Novick Auto Mall to pick up her new vehicle, 2014 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad. Her name was chosen out of 872 tickets on October 13th at the Deerfield Township Harvest Festival in Rosenhayn, NJ. Big Brothers Big Sisters staff and volunteers entered the stage at approximately 8:15 PM to pull the name and announce the lucky winner before thousands of people. Larissa was not present when the announcement was made. However, President and CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cumberland & Salem Counties, Donna Bennett called Larissa shortly after and delivered the great news.
Larissa’s name was entered into the raffle by her father, a Vineland resident, without her knowledge, which made the call even more of a surprise. Larissa made the trip to Novick Auto Mall in Bridgeton, NJ to finalize the details and met with Debby Novick (Novick Auto Mall Vice President & General Manager) and Donna Bennett, where she was congratulated and given the keys to her brand new truck. All proceeds from the All American Car Raffle will support the long-term, outcome-based mentoring relationships that are supported by the professional staff at Big Brothers Big Sisters. The agency, Board of Trustees and volunteers would like to congratulate Larissa Goodwin and thank all who participated in the All American Car Raffle.
