May 01, 2013 - Hopeful ticket buyers filled John Bowman Chevrolet, April 27, watching 9-year-old Sophie Wirth reach into the hopper, rummage through the 4,329 entries, and draw the winner of a 2013 Corvette Coupe.

Ronald Stiefel of Dearborn Heights was the lucky winner of the car, along with $50,000, in Easter Seals Michigan's 59th Car Raffle Fundraiser.

"John Bowman does a wonderful job for us every year," said Jonn Kersten, president of Century 21 Town & Country and MC at the event. "We raised $875,000 last year, putting us over the $12 million mark."

Easter Seals Michigan started offering new car raffles nearly 20 years ago.
