Car raffle raises funds for Children’s Special Needs Projects

Minerva Lawrence was the lucky winner of the Rotary Club of St. Maarten's Valentine's Day Car Raffle. In the company of Rotarians, supporters and under supervision of Notary Meridith Boekhoudt the winning ticket was drawn on the premises of Le Grand Marche on Bush Road at approximately 10:15 Thursday Morning.  The car raffle which was launched in August last year aimed to raise funds for community service projects that in particular cater to special needs children, youth and the community in general. The red Hyundai i10 was provided at cost by Motor World allowing for most of the funds raised to go back to the community. President Robert Judd called the valentine's day winner who made her way to the location to collect her prize. The Rotary Club of St. Maarten would like to congratulate Minerva Lawrence on this very happy Valentine's day and thank Motor World and all who contributed towards making this fundraising a success. The club continues to carryout it's community service work and can do so because of the support of the community
