Spending $10 on a couple of raffle tickets for a good cause turned into a new car, just in time for college, for Kwinten Hale, 19, of Pingree.
Hale is the winner of the 1996 Chevy Cavalier that was raffled off on Saturday in conjunction with the third annual Rollin' For A Cause juvenile diabetes fundraiser. The car donated by Brad Moss of Blackfoot's Homeland Auto has been on display throughout the community the past few months, with raffle tickets selling for $5.
Hale, a 2012 graduate of Snake River High School, said, "I wasn't planning on winning the car at all. I just thought it [Rollin' For A Cause] would be a good cause to support."
