KINGSTON — Diana Lundgaard won the 1965 black-with-red-racing stripe Mustang raffled by the Greater Kingston Kiwanis Club Sept. 2, during the Early Irons Car Show.
This was the seventh year for the Kiwanis Club’s Mustang raffle, and most commented that this was the prettiest Mustang of the lot, according to Dick Osborne of the Kiwanis Club.
“And whether you bought your ticket at Columbia Bank, Kitsap Bank, the Kingston Chamber of Commerce or one of the many other venues where tickets were sold, you were also a winner,” he said.
“The money earned from this car will go to support a host of projects. A good part of the proceeds will be used to support the North Kitsap Boys and Girls Club housed in the Kingston Middle School.”
With the additional support from the Suquamish Tribe, the Valentines Gala and the Early Irons Car Show, car proceeds will allow the club to enroll some 100 children in the local after-school program.
The car raffle proceeds also support Kiwanis scholarships. These scholarships are awarded to graduating seniors who intend to continue their education and are based predominately on the applicant’s community service record.
A slice of the car cash will fund the October Halloween Gala for the Kingston Kids and Summer Concerts at the Port, and support programs at Wolfle Elementary School (Kiwanis sponsors a summer food program, lunches for volunteers at the school and a school supply drive).
“The $10 ticket you bought will also be used to support the Key Club at the Kingston High School, buy paint for Tiny Town, purchase eggs for the Easter Egg Hunt, pay for dinners honoring contributors to our community at the once a month evening meeting and much, much more,” Osborne said. “To the list of those we need to thank and will honor next year, Lori and Jerry Schmidt are high on the list for their help with the car. Thanks, Jerry, for installation of the new engine.
Osborne, the club’s outgoing president, thanked the following individual Kiwanians for their leadership on important projects:Pete DeBoer, Margaret Lemay and Dale Rude, Kingston Fourth of July; Hal Hoover, Kiwanis host for the Christmas Consort by the Kitsap Chordsmen; Judy Osborn, Valentine’s Day Gala, and toys for children at Christmas and birthdays (she collected some 700 toys); Wendy Armstrong, Kingston Clean-up drives; Dave Wetter, construction at Village Green; Pat Bennett-Forman, school supply drive and Mustang sales drive; Dave Muller, berry sales.
