Family Centers to Raffle Off 1951 MG-TD Convertible at Roaring Twenties Benefit

Imagine cruising around with the ragtop down in a classic roadster.  This fall, Family Centers will make this a reality for one lucky winner.

As part of its “Roaring Twenties” benefit, Family Centers will raffle off a classic 1951 MG-TD convertible to allow the winner to take home some of the glamour synonymous with this classic American era.  The car is in impeccable condition and features the original 1250-cc four cylinder engine, leather interior and 4-speed transmission. 

The MG was donated by Ginny and Sean Day, who are dedicated supporters of Family Centers and its work in the community. 

Tickets are now on sale here for $100 each.  All proceeds from the raffle will benefit Family Centers’ 25 health, education and human service programs.  The winner does not need to be present at the “Roaring Twenties” event to claim the prize.  For more information or to purchase tickets, contact Dina D’Amelio at  This email address is being protected from spambots.
