BOYERTOWN PA – Patriot Dealerships, with new and used car and truck automotive showrooms for Buick and GMC in Boyertown and Chevrolet in Limerick, have donated a 2018 Buick Encore automobile to the annual Devon Derby raffle of the Devon Horse Show and Country Fair. Valued at $23,000, it will be awarded on a two-year lease to a grand prize winner in a fund-raiser to benefit Bryn Mawr Hospital, the show announced Monday (April 9, 2018).
Its offer of the Encore represents the first time Patriot has participated as a show donor.
“We are committed to community involvement, and could not think of a better way to show our support than by benefiting the horse show’s pledge to Bryn Mawr Hospital,” dealerships’ owner Jason Owens said. “This is a wonderful event for a great cause, and someone is leaving with a brand-new Encore. We’re proud to be part of this tradition.”
Sold in advance at several locations, as well as each day during the show, Devon Derby raffle books cost $10 for 6 chances. Single chances cost $2 each. The Encore winner will be selected June 2 (2018; the last Saturday of the show). Other prizes include two pairs of Maui Jim sunglasses, a golf bag and headcovers with the Devon logo, two Phillies tickets with dinner and parking, a bicycle, and designer earrings.
The raffle raises about $35,000 yearly for the hospital,” show Chairman Wayne W. Grafton said. Started in 1896, the Devon Horse Show is the oldest and largest outdoor multi-breed competition in the United States, and draws in top competitors from around the world.
