Huge shoutout to Karen Kelly from the Kansas City Metro Area – the winner of our 2023 Drive it Home Raffle! She won a brand new Ford Explorer XLT 4WD! She picked up her new car in Cape Girardeau on Dec. 19, 2023! Our 2023 raffle raised more than $110,000 for SOMO!

Karen couldn't make it to the finalist drawing on Dec. 1, so Capt. Josh Heinen from the Kansas City Police Department stepped in to represent her. His reaction when he discovered Karen's victory? Pure shock and excitement! Let the celebration begin! Congratulations to all the finalists, and thank you to everyone who bought a raffle ticket to support SOMO!
