Seabrook, TX – Keels & Wheels Concours d’Elegance Lincoln raffle winner, Katherine Arnold, received the keys to a brand new 2017 Lincoln Continental at the Bayway Lincoln dealership on Monday, May 16, 2017. The winner is also a philanthropist whose support through the Paulea Family Foundation has provided $25,000 to the Boys & Girls Harbor during the Keels & Wheels’ annual “Uncorked” event. Arnold’s winning ticket was purchased during “Uncorked” while she was simultaneously donating and matching funds for the organization.
The stunning automobile valued at over $44,000 was donated by The Lincoln Motor Co. and Bayway Lincoln as the Title Sponsor for the 22nd Annual Keels & Wheels Concours d’Elegance. The Bayway Lincoln dealership generously underwrote all administrative costs of the vehicle.
“I’m very excited about winning because it’s such a great cause,” said Arnold as she was congratulated by Keels & Wheels Concours Chairmen Bob Fuller and Paul Merryman alongside Darryl Wischnewski of Bayway Lincoln. Arnold stated, “our family tries to support the Keels & Wheels’ mission any way we can, but winning the raffle car was a surprise; we didn’t think we would win.”
All raffle proceeds benefitted The Boys & Girls Harbor and helped contribute to another successful year at Keels & Wheels Concours d’Elegance.
