OWINGS, Md. (March 23, 2010)—Mrs. Toni Hoover, of Owings, scored herself a white Mercedes Benz SLK convertible as a result of buying a raffle ticket. One thousand raffle tickets were sold for $20 each, raising $20,000 for the United Way of Calvert County.
The vehicle was donated by Family Auto Mercedes BMW in Owings. Since the car was donated in full, 100% of the raffle proceeds benefitted the United Way.
