Best of Both Worlds: Win both a 1965 Mustang and a 2012 Mustang

Raffle benefits The Ronald McDonald House of Long Island

Can you make room in your garage for two Mustangs? 

The Ronald McDonald House of Long Island (RMHLI) will be hosting its 25th Anniversary Gala at Citi Field, home of the New York Mets. The evening will feature an unprecedented raffle — the opportunity to win both a 1965 Ford Mustang (courtesy of East to West Classic Car Club) and 2012 Ford Mustang (donated by Ford Lincoln of Queens & CBS News).

Tickets are $100 each and a maximum of 2,500 tickets will be sold; the winning ticket-holder need not be present at the gala to claim the prize.

RMHLI is a home-away-from-home, a temporary lodging facility for seriously ill children and their families who must travel to area hospitals for urgently needed medical care. These families stay at the House while their child is under a physician's care, whether the child is hospitalized or being treated on an out-patient basis. Residents enjoy a home-like setting, the privacy of their own room and, most importantly, the understanding of others who share the same burden of having a seriously ill child.

Studies show that with their family nearby, a child heals better. When a family doesn't need to worry about food and lodging, they are better able to cope with their child’s medical needs.

RMHLI must cover its operating expenses through private donations and contributions. Call 516-775-5683, ext. 138, or visit www.rmhlongisland.org for more information.

    im entering for my dad, Kory, who is 43, and has been blind since 18. 100% completely blind. he lost his sight from diabetes that he got when he was 4 years old. he got this from a shot needed for school. it wasnt only him that got diabetes, but 8 other people that got the same shot for the same reason. id just like to get these cars for him to enjoy while hes still around... he is expected to live to 60, and you never know if something is gonna happen between now and then. since ive been around weve had to take him to the hospital around 40 times, and im only 15 years old. he can sometimes get low blood-sugar while hes asleep and has had multiple seizures from that.. i could write a whole book about his life, but i dont have enough time for that.. thank you for the giveaway- Jordan
