Mazda Miata Fan Wins the Roadster Dream Giveaway!

GRAVETTE, Ark. - ArkaSun -- The Roadster Dream Giveaway ended on February 28, 2023. Joseph Schlueter from Minnesota is the grand-prize winner of a 2022 Mazda MX-5 Miata Roadster. Also included in the grand-prize package was a trifecta of bonus prize - an automobile interior upgrade from Katzkin, a three-day racing school experience at Skip Barber Racing School and an SCCA membership - and $10,000 towards the prize taxes.

Mr. Schlueter's donation on February 28, 2023, landed him the winning entry. "I am very impressed with the mission and focus of New Beginning Children's Home … but all the charities are very worthy," he said. "Miata or not, I would not have entered this giveaway if it did not have the charitable focus."

On March 17, 2023, he received the winner's telephone call giving him the exciting news. "When I first got the call, I had to chuckle because of the fact the car would complete what is now my four-generation Miata collection," he said. "I also had to chuckle because I knew my wife would not be thrilled with the acquisition of yet another car. With the grand-prize package including money for taxes, it allows me to keep the car without the stress that might have come from having to pay significant dollars for taxes. Now I need to figure out how to house an extra set of wheels!"

He is also an auto enthusiast.  In addition to his Miata collection, he has a 1991 Mercury station wagon that is a beautiful survivor and has been in his family for over 20 years. He enjoys working on his cars and spending time with his family.

For the people who have yet to enter a Dream Giveaway, he had this to say, "It is worthwhile and it is very much real! At the end of the day every charity is only as valuable as the funds and people on hand to carry out the mission.  The fact that a really fun and interactive way to raise significant funds has been developed does not make it any less valuable, so don't sit on the sidelines, buy a ticket!"

Mr. Schlueter is Dream Giveaway's 114th grand-prize winner since 2008.
