PCA E-Brake News

PCA member surprised with news of $25,000 prize
PCA    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
PCA's National Secretary, Caren Cooper, along with husband Weston Dillard, and John & Edie Musgrove (PCA 2008 Family of the Year) lured 2nd prize raffle winner Wylie Cavin to meet for what he thought was a tire certificate presentation. The "tire certificate" was for purchasing 20 raffle entries in PCA Member Only raffle. While getting ready to pose for pictures, the Musgrove's broke the news to him that he wasn’t being presented with a tire certificate but instead he was in fact the winner of $25,000. Mr. Cavin stood quite stunned for a few seconds then remarked "I was happy just to win tires." It's been especially fun this month presenting the raffle prizes. Though we could only have two winners, we hope that you've enjoyed the recent videos, pictures, and event coverage. So that wraps up the spring PCA Member Only raffle. Stay tuned for information on the fall raffle...hint hint: its going to be for a newly anticipated Porsche.
