Congratulations to Jenny Watkins, Lucy Watkins and Alvin Case of Dorchester.  They won HOPe’s FIAT raffle and used their winnings toward the purchase of a 2015 KIA Sportage SUV, so they can all ride in their brand new car together. Jenny, Alvin, and Lucy are all thrilled as they had been saving up for a car for a year and a half since their 1997 Subaru died. Jenny had been taking the MBTA all that time and as we all know through the WORST WINTER ON RECORD!  They had been planning on buying a USED vehicle sometime this fall, when they won the raffle, and they now we have a NEW PERFECT AWD SUV with heated leather seats and a sunroof!!!  Jenny and Alvin picked up the new car along with Lucy, who has autism and attends the Guild School in Waltham after its end of the year award ceremony, and they are delighted with their new car.  They are pictured here with a representative of Central Auto of Norwood.  We wish them all the best with their new wheels !!
