Today I spoke to Jenni Shreeves, executive director of the Carroll Shelby Foundation (CSF). Shreeves, who oversees all the good work put forth by the CSF, talked to me about the 50th Shelby Cobra currently up for raffle. The car was prominently featured in the Shelby American Booth at this year's SEMA Show.
"50 years have passed since the Cobra was built, a milestone that deserves recognition and celebration," said Jenni Shreeves, executive director of the Carroll Shelby Foundation. "After last year's announcement at Barrett-Jackson of the 50th anniversary Shelby Cobra, the vehicle sold out within hours. Since no more will be built, this raffle is the final opportunity to walk away with a true piece of automotive history and one of the most iconic sports cars ever built."
For more information on how to enter, go to www.winashelby.org. All proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the Carroll Shelby Foundation, which, thanks to Mr. Shelby's vision, works to provide financial support for children and medical professionals to help overcome life-threatening health issues worldwide and promoting continuing education. A worthy cause, no doubt.
