Mr. Barr is pictured here in his Corvette grand prize. The Rotary Club of Lake Houston Area wishes to thank everyone who purchased Corvette Raffle tickets to support local non-profits and student scholarships. 
With hundreds of people gathered around the main stage of Generation Park’s Block Party at Redemption Square on Saturday, May 7th, members of the Rotary Club of Lake Houston Area carried a wire tumbler cage filled with over 1,000 Corvette Raffle entries onto the stage.
The audience waited anxiously as the Block Party Master of Ceremonies, John Mills, announced the raffle prizes to be given away and introduced Rotary Corvette Raffle Sponsor Cole Robbins from Robbins Chevrolet; Rotary Club President Kathy Lemman and President-Elect Eric Gomez.  
The grand prize was a low mileage, mint condition 2015 Chevrolet Corvette A06 Convertible 3LZ with performance package. Eleven $250 Visa gift cards and one annual family pass for the Houston Aquarium were also raffled off as runner-up prizes.
Eric Gomez announced to the Block Party audience the runner-up winners were going to be drawn and announced first. Their winning raffle tickets would then be placed back in the tumbler so they would have an opportunity to win the grand prize too.
The wire tumbler was then thoroughly spun by Rotarian Sonia Garcia and the winning runner-up tickets were drawn by Maxine; a teenage volunteer chosen at random from the audience.  Eric Gomez announced the runner-up winners as each was drawn.
The runner-up winners of the eleven $250 Visa gift cards were: Leticia Baeza, Marvin Monk, Mike Kevlin, John Arthur, Brandon Pollack, M.K. Price, Miguel Aceevedo, Minhas R. Vellana, Janice Gibson,
Jess Fields Jr., and Rickey Hamilton. The winner of the Houston Aquarium Annuall Family Pass was Mike Kevlin, Runner-up winners who were not present were to be contacted by the Rotary Club within
a few days to arrange when to pick up their pass.

After the winners’ names and phone numbers were recorded by Club Secretary Laurie Polomsky, their raffle tickets were returned to the tumbler for the Corvette drawing. The tumbler was spun again by Sonia Garcia before the grand prize ticket was drawn by audience volunteer Maxine.
Eric Gomez announced the Corvette Convertible grand prize winner was Floyd Barr of Montgomery, Texas. Mr. Barr has been buying raffle tickets from Rotarian Mike Carr for years. This year he purchased three tickets and one paid off as the winning ticket for the Corvette convertible. Mr. Barr has a heavy equipment business but he’s trying to retire.
When asked what he was going to do now that he had won the Corvette, Mr. Barr said he was planning on offering it to his wife as an anniversary gift.
