Toyota RAV4 Winner
Amanda Martin of Shallotte, NC has won a Toyota RAV4. The Ocean Isle Museum Foundation (OIMF) sold 600 tickets at $100 apiece for the chance to win a 2021 Toyota RAV4 XLE SUV. The winning ticket was drawn on January 8, 2021. The OIMF would like to thank Dunning Toyota/Subaru of Ann Arbor, MI and especially Julie Dunning and Alan Cantor, who vacation on Ocean Isle Beach and have been true supporters of the Foundation and its work.
The lucky winner, Amanda Martin, is a CT Technologist. Given the challenges of 2020, how fitting and wonderful that our winner also happens to be a professional healthcare worker! Ms. Martin had just finished working 13 consecutive shifts when she got the news about winning the car and was getting ready for shift number 14. She was thrilled and stated, “I have never won anything! I was just glad to support the museum and planetarium. That was really why I even bought the ticket because I thought it was such a great way to support and raise money to keep those establishments going.” Thank you and congratulations, Amanda!
This type of contest is not something that OIMF typically engages in. However, with the Museum of Coastal Carolina and Ingram Planetarium closed for so many months due to Covid-19, the OIMF fundraising committee and the board of trustees agreed to “step out of the box” and give away a car. OIMF would like to offer its sincere thanks to everyone who supported the Museum of Coastal Carolina and Ingram Planetarium by buying a ticket.
OIMF’s fundraising committee has already started working on the next give-away: a golf cart. Call the museum to place your name on a waiting list if you are interested in buying a ticket (910-579-1016, M-F, 10:00-3:00).
Second Golf Cart Raffle Winner is Peggy Parcher
The Ocean Isle Museum Foundation sold 100 raffle tickets at $100 per ticket for the North Carolina “road-ready” golf cart pictured above. The winning ticket was drawn on Friday, June 26, at noon on the Museum steps.
The lucky winner is Peggy Parcher of Bowling Green, OH. She and her husband, Dave, have a vacation home on Ocean Isle Beach. Ms. Parcher, who was not present for the drawing, was contacted by phone and told she was the winner. She stated “We just love it there! We are thrilled, excited, and can’t believe we won. My son and husband didn’t even know I bought a ticket and my son is here jumping up and down!” Peggy and her son, Zach, are shown above.
The Foundation would like to thank all of those who supported the Museum of Coastal Carolina and Ingram Planetarium by buying a raffle ticket.
The golf cart is provided by Coastal Golf Car Sales in Southport, NC. The Foundation thanks all those who purchased raffle tickets.
