Teen Volunteer Wins $70,000 SUV in Charity Raffle, Then Stuns Crowd

To begin with, Erin Byrnes was pretty excited to be attending the annual gala for a nonprofit that helps pregnant mothers and their children. She was all geared up to accept an award from Joseph’s House for her volunteer work.

Turns out, Erin had even more reason to celebrate that evening: she won the big raffle prize, the SUV worth nearly seventy thousand dollars.

She spent the summer collecting cans and bottles just to be able to buy herself 60 raffle tickets for nearly $200 .
