The Lucan Car Raffle 2019

Monday, October 21, 2019

For some, a dream can be as simple as a nice car and an open road. Larry Hotson and the Lucan Biddulph Recreation Committee Annual Car Raffle are hoping to make that a reality for one lucky winner, with proceeds supporting The Sunshine Foundation of Canada.

Larry has been a member of the Lucan Lions Club for a remarkable 54 years and has been organizing the raffle for over twenty years with the help of the committee. The group has been inspired by the impact of Sunshine Dream Programs and other programs that help the community.

“The community wouldn’t be the same without the support of the club,” he says. Close to 60,000 tickets were sold for last year’s draw for the Pontiac GTO, with many tickets being sold by local vendors in small communities such as the fry stand or gas station.  Larry and his fellow committee members also travel across the province to various car shows and malls to sell tickets.

The draw to name a classic car winner occurs every Boxing Day. It’s a wonderful wrap up to the holiday season and an exciting gift for the new winner. While some car winners have gone on to sell the vehicles, others cherish their new hot rod.

The Committee’s support of Sunshine continues with this year’s car raffle, A 1968 Red V8 Chevy Camaro SS, the latest in a long line of bold-coloured classic cars that help change kids’ lives. More information on the raffle can be found at
