Press Release (ePRNews.com) - GRAVETTE, Ark. - Mar 24, 2017 - The 2016 Mustang Dream Giveaway, a nationwide drawing sponsored by New Beginning Children’s Homes, ended on February 28th, 2017. Seventy-five year old Tony Cotterman from Indiana was the grand-prize winner.
Mr. Cotterman was awarded a classic 1967 Shelby G.T. 350, which was personally autographed by Carroll Shelby and a customized 2016 Shelby GT350. The grand-prize also included $45,000 towards the prize taxes.
On November 1, 2016, Mr. Cotterman made a $25 donation to enter the 2016 Mustang Dream Giveaway and scored the lucky ticket. “I feel good that my donations went to help the charities involved,” he said. “I knew even if I didn’t win, my money would still be helping some good causes.”
On Wednesday, March 15, 2017, he received the news via telephone that he had won the 2016 Mustang Dream Giveaway. “When I learned I had won, my mouth fell open,” he said. “I have never won anything that amounted to anything like this. It was definitely a surprise. When I told my family I had won, they were just as shocked.”
Mr. Cotterman has been playing with cars all his life, but a recent physical disability has prevented him from enjoying driving. “When my legs went bad I wasn’t able to drive a car anymore,” he said. “I can tell you though it sure has been enjoyable winning both Shelby Mustangs. Maybe I’ll sit in them once or twice a day for the rest of my life and just watch the world go by.”
Mr. Cotterman’s brother-in-law George Mason will be accepting the keys on his behalf at the 2016 Mustang Dream Giveaway award ceremony on March 31st, 2017, in Clearwater, Florida.
