VIDEO: Lucky donor scores brand new car from United Way
United Way of Delaware presents a lucky donor with a brand new Kia Soul Friday.
In celebration of United Way's 125th Anniversary, Linda DiSabatino has won the "Drive to 125" campaign raffle.
"I'm very, very excited. I have never ever won anything in my life so it's been a week, and I'm still not sure about it," she says.
DiSabatino, who works for Catholic Charities, has always loved United Way.
"Catholic Charities was one of the first recipients of United Way funding way back when so it's a nice connection," she says.
Vice President of United Way John Moore is proud to give back to a long-time donor.
"And what a great way to receive this ,someone's who been donating for 39 years, and all the work she's been doing, selflessly, giving to the United Way what a great gesture to give back," says Moore.
General Manager for AutoTeam Delaware, Matthew Kersey, looks forward to helping with the raffle again next year.
"It felt really good. Most of the other times when you see car giveaways, there's some kind of contest, and it was really nice to see someone actually get it, and also someone who's so involved with United Way," says Kersey.
Linda and her husband plan to take a road trip in her brand new car next week.
All the donations from the raffle benefit United Way's Community Impact Fund that addresses education, income, and health.
