Ronald McDonald House '68 GT/CS Raffle

A friend just sent this to me.

I can't find anything about it on the Central Valley Ronald McDonald website.

That is very cool, thanks for posting that! I just may have to purchase 1 ticket or 40. The RMH is a great charity so will go to a good cause, just hope that CS goes to my cause, 'cause I really like it. Anyone know who's CS that belongs or belonged to, anyone we know here by chance? Just curious.

The photo looks like it's of the 1/18 scale model.

I just sent an email to the official www.rmhc.org site inquiring if this is a legit raffle. I'll post back if they return my email.

It's legit guys. There are Ronald McDonald houses in every major market so they have to get creative with their website domain names. This is the 18th year the Central Valley house has had a car raffle. A couple years ago it was a '68 Shelby. The website is hard to navigate, but here is the "home" page:

No mention of the 2011 raffle anywhere on the site.

I got an email back from the main www.RMHC.org web site (Josephine Fazio) confirming the Central Valley Chapter contact info. I then spoke to Jill who confirmed the raffle is legit and she's going to email me some info.

I mentioned to Jill that people were a little wary because the web site on the flyer just had a single graphic and no links to the main site. She was actually surprised that the flyer had been posted already. They haven't officially launched the raffle yet and are still getting that part of the web site put together. If you look at the site now there's quite a bit more info then a few days ago, and it's still being worked on. http://www.ronald-mcdonaldhouse.org

So it sounds like Arlie has some really good connections that leaked out the story early!

I'll post more info as soon as Jill sends it to me.

It was in last week's issue of AutoWeek.

The car needs a few little things fixed (stripes, scoop screens, pedestals) but it certainly looks like some raffle tickets are in my future.
