The winner of a raffle for a fully upgraded Jeep Wrangler, which raised $25,000 for the Breast Cancer Foundation this month, collected her new vehicle last week.

Bernice Scott was announced as the winner of the jeep at the charity’s annual gala on Oct. 6.

The Jeep Wrangler, which was purchased by Tony Williams of Tony’s Toys, was completely upgraded by him and his staff. They also wrapped the vehicle in pink ribbon and put Breast Cancer Foundation decals and branding on it.

Mr. Williams then donated the Jeep to the Breast Cancer Foundation, which, over six weeks, sold 1,000 $25 raffle tickets.

“I was thrilled to win the Jeep,” said Ms. Scott in a press release. “It was such a delight after a long hard week at work.”

She added, “More impressive though, was the real spirit of the event and the amazing generosity of the attendees. It really showed the Caymankind spirit.“

Kim Lund, co-founder of the Breast Cancer Foundation, said the one-of-a-kind Jeep was “a show stopper” at this year’s gala.

“We cannot thank Tony and his staff enough for his donation. This Jeep was such a huge hit and we could have easily sold more than 1,000 raffle tickets,” added fellow founder James Bovell.
