Thank you for supporting the 2021 Helping Seniors Car Raffle – this is our 10th year of operating the County’s Senior Information Helpline and, now, our 5th Annual Helping Seniors Car Raffle, where we thank you, in advance, for supporting our work on behalf of the more than 283,698 persons 50+ living in Brevard County Florida.

The Helping Seniors Car Raffle Grand Drawing event will take place:

Date: Saturday, October 9th, 2021.

We are so appreciative of American Muscle Car Museum Owner Mark Pieloch and A.J. Hiers, of Boniface-Hiers Automotive – for their help over the years in supporting the work of Helping Seniors through the Helping Seniors Car Raffle and we are looking forward to a great Grand Drawing event for 2021!

 The Story behind the Helping Seniors Car Raffle

En·dorse·ment (n) an act of giving one’s public approval or support to someone or something.

Helping Seniors President/Founder Joe Steckler paid a call on A.J. Hiers, of the Boniface-Hiers Automotive Group, in early 2017.  AJ had helped Joe in the past when Joe was busy with his work with the Alzheimer’s Foundation and Joe had wanted to talk about a car to follow-up on the Helping Seniors 2016 successful “Win the Jaguar” raffle fundraiser.  (The “Win the Jaguar” Raffle Car, by the way, was donated to Helping Seniors by an individual who wanted to help support the vision of Helping Seniors).Helping Seniors 1951 Ford Victoria

AJ showed Joe a beautifully restored 1951 Ford Victoria – a look-alike to the one Robert Mitchum drove in the classic movie “Thunder Road.”  – in AJ’s private collection.    “An absolutely beautiful car,” Joe told AJ, “but we haven’t got that kind of money.”  AJ said, “Joe, you can afford that car!”  Joe asked him how that could be possible.  AJ’s answer: “You can afford it, because I am giving it to you!”

As they talked further, AJ told Joe that he believed in the work that Joe was doing with Helping Seniors and wanted to find a way to help ensure the work of Helping Seniors can keep going and growing.  “Joe,” he said, “Take this car and use it to make as much money as you possibly can to help in the good work that you are doing.”  And, with AJ’s ringing endorsement, they kicked-off 2017’s Helping Seniors “Win the Classic” Car Raffle fund-raising effort which culminated with February 10th 2018 Grand Prize drawing at the American Muscle Car Museum in Melbourne Florida with James Lawler, of Satellite Beach FL, as the fortunate winner.

The 2018-2019 Helping Seniors Car Raffle featured the opportunity for the Grand Prize winner to select their choice of a new 2019 Dodge Challenger, Mazda Convertible or Dodge Truck.  Karen Leigh Hoodless, of Melbourne FL, was at the Grand Prize Drawing at the American Muscle Car Museum on April 29th 2019, and drove home in her choice of the 3 cars – the Dodge Challenger!  In fact, she selected the very model that was on display at the American Muscle Car Museum that night!


2020 Car Raffle Winner (Troy Darling)The 2020 Helping Seniors Car Raffle offered up Winner’s Choice of a 2021 Chevrolet Camaro, 2021 Dodge Challenger, 2021 Mazda Miata convertible or a 2021 Kia Sportage.  Troy Darling, of Indialantic FL, won the Car Raffle and chose a beautiful 2020 Chevrolet Camaro.

This year, Helping Seniors President Joe Steckler and Car Dealer A.J. Hiers have stepped it all up even further with brand new 2021 cars – offering the winner the choice of a 2021 Chevrolet Camaro, a 2021 Mazda Miata Convertible, a 2021 Kia Sportage, or a 2021 Dodge Challenger!
