Kevin and Kim Leneghan of Catawba Island were shocked and surprised when Pastor Father Jonathan Wight spun the contest drum and had altar boy Abram Sandvick pluck one of a thousand tickets to give away a 2023 Chevrolet Equinox Supreme.

The Leneghan’s ticket was the lucky one, but the slick new ride won’t be parked in their driveway.

“We had already decided that if we won, we’d give the new car to our grandparents, Bab and Gail Sutz, who also live on Catawba. They really need a new car, and this one is just perfect for them,” said Kim Leneghan. “We can’t wait to see their smiles.”

The vehicle was donated to benefit Immaculate Conception Church and School by the O’Brien Family, owners of the O’Brien Firelands Auto Group in Sandusky.

The Leneghans more than doubled down on their gamble for the new Chevrolet. The raffle tickets, — 1,000 of them were sold out last week — were $50. The Leneghans bought 10 tickets.

They have already invested in their children’s education, as well. Their kids, Leah and Declan are in the second and fifth grades at Immaculate Conception School. Daughter Kate has graduated and moved on to Port Clinton Middle School.
