Tyler Ford hosting raffle for Shelby Mustang - for a good cause

It's one of the prettiest cars you've ever seen - and it can be yours for the low, low price of just ten dollars.

Tyler Ford's managing partner, David Irwin, has become a defender of women and children victimized by domestic violence in their support of the East Texas Crisis Center. Six years ago, David decided to donate a car to the Center to raffle as a fundraiser, and has continued his philanthropy by donating another car annually ever since.

In those six years, Tyler Ford's donated vehicles have raised over a quarter of a million dollars to provide services to thousands of victims of family violence in East Texas.

This year's car is a 2008 Shelby GT Mustang, autographed by Carroll Shelby. It's a limited edition  - #259 of only 2,000 made. Along with the vehicle, the winner will get carefully maintained documentation and detailed records of the car including a certificate of authenticity for Mr. Shelby's autograph.

Raffle tickets are $10, and the car will be given away Sunday, February 22nd, 2009 at Harvey Convention Center.

Tickets can be purchased at www.autoandcycleshow.com, Quick Lane Car Wash & Oil Change, Whataburger (South Broadway and Loop 323 locations), Haigler Motors, and of course, Tyler Ford.
