First prize in this year’s Raffle was a Jeep Wrangler Sport sponsored by Valenti AutoMall and the winner was: Turgut Parlakkilic of Fairfield County.
Turgut and his family are pictured collecting his prize from Bob Valenti – just in time for the Thanksgiving Holiday.
“Turgut has been a long-time supporter of High Hopes having purchased a raffle ticket every year since we started the raffle. We are delighted to have partnered this year with Valenti AutoMall for this really important High Hopes fundraiser,” said Sara Qua, Director of Development.
“Through fundraisers like this, High Hopes is able to offer all of the benefits of Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies to a wide population of individuals living with physical, cognitive and emotional disabilities. Our fundraising pays for nearly 80% of the true cost of each program and in addition offers financial aid to those families that are unable to pay any or all of the remaining cost.”
