Welcome to the Dodge Demon Charity Drawing. 71 MVP Inc. (a 501c3 charitable organization) is stepping in to assist three local charities by holding a drawing by donation for the Clemente Dodge Demon. The three beneficiaries of this year’s effort will be the Boys & Girls Clubs of Volusia / Flagler Counties, the Childhood Cancer Foundation Inc. and Volusia School Fuel.
The Boys & Girls Club mission is well known and the Childhood Cancer Foundation Inc. concentrates on all of the challenges associated with that disease. Although lesser known, Volusia School Fuel takes on the noble cause of feeding those children who are the beneficiaries of school breakfast, lunch and dinner but cannot be guaranteed food on weekends, days off and weekends. Worthy causes all.
Tickets for the drawing are available at dodgedemoncharitydrawing.com. Only 1971 tickets will be sold (representing the year that Roberto Clemente won his World Series honor) and they are on sale for $210 per ticket (representing his #21). The original sticker price of the car was in the $90,000 range but, as Demons will no longer be produced and this a one-of-a-kind specialty vehicle, the value could reach well into the mid $100,000.
The drawing is sure to appeal to a number of parties including the benefactors of each individual charity, Dodge Demon enthusiasts, Pittsburgh Pirate fans and Roberto Clemente admirers. Our first public display of the vehicle give-a-way will be the Turkey Run event to be held on its traditional Thanksgiving week at Daytona International Speedway.
