Lions Club raffle winner picks up keys to truck

Taylor Clark's name was drawn Saturday at Poultry Festival

Taylor Clark on Saturday was named the winner of the truck drawing for 2018 Danny Foster Memorial Fundraiser of the Center Noon Lions Club.

On Monday afternoon she was presented the keys to her new ride at Raymond Motor Company, which supplied the truck for the fundraising drawing, according to Tim Wulf, raffle chairman for the Center Noon Lions Club.

“I was really surprised,” said Clark, a college sophomore when she got a call telling her she was the winner of the 2018 GMC Canyon extended cab pickup.

In addition to Clark as the grand prize drawing winner, there were four winners of $250 each whose names were drawn at 6 p.m. Saturday at the East Texas Poultry Festival. The four were J. Mike Bird, Ron Bellenger, T-n-T McDrill and Suzanne Ihlo.

Wulf said the Lions Club would like to give special thanks to Raymond Motor Company who donated the 2018 GMC pickup for the raffle.

He said funds raised from the raffle support a variety of good causes in Shelby County with all the money staying in the local area.
