BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – This past Saturday night our Public Safety Charity pulled the winning raffle ticket for the Dodge Hemi-Hellcat that was donated to our charity as a fundraiser by A.J. Hiers of Boniface Hiers Automotive Group.

The winner of the drawing was Dr. Craig Kara, a local Dentist who was present at the “raffle ticket drawing” and immediately got to sit in his brand new Dodge Hemi-Hellcat.

Dr. Kara purchased multiple raffle tickets in an effort to support our charity and also the chance to win his dream car.

Raffle tickets for this amazing car were sold throughout the past year by volunteer members of the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Charity, a not-for-profit that collectively supports our Public Safety Charity, our Police Athletic League, and the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Pet Posse.

As a result of the raffle and through the graciousness of A.J. Hiers, the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Charity made approximately $61,799.92 to help support our Police Athletic League Program, Law Enforcement Officers and Firefighters during a time of need, and our Pet Posse that helps take care of homeless pets throughout Brevard County.

I would like to personally thank A.J. Hiers, Ed Mendez, and the entire Boniface Hiers Team for being such amazing partners with our agency and charity and for all they do to help take care of the homeless pets at our Animal Care Center.

I want to also thank Sue-Tyson Parker, Ben Glover, Alan Rainey, Mary Moseman, Tim Ambrose, and Robert Rose for all of their time, energy, and hard work to make the raffle so successful.

Remember…”it takes a community to protect a community” and partnerships like this are living proof of how true that statement is!
