Car Fanatic From Wisconsin Wins the Indy Camaro Dream Giveaway!
By: New Beginning Children's Homes
Mr. Kruse's donation on May 27, 2022, landed him the winning ticket. "Knowing that my donation was going to help some great children's and veterans' charities is what enticed me to keep entering the giveaways for the past 13 years," he said. "Of course, the cars entice you, too. There is no doubt about that but I never really thought I win."
On March 30, 2023, he received the winner's telephone call giving him the exciting news but the real excitement was the award ceremony held at the Dream Giveaway Garage in Largo, Florida. "Getting to meet the Honor Flight of West Central Florida's 98-year-old World War II veteran and shake his hand was such a great experience. It was the experience of a lifetime. Taking pictures with the car, getting handed the keys and getting to meet everyone … I was so humbled by the whole thing."
Mr. Kruse has worked in the auto-collision repair industry for the past 43 years. He and his wife love cars. He has built several restomods and hotrods in the past. "Since getting the car home, my wife Kathy has driven it every day. She loves it! We've been telling our neighbors all about Dream Giveaway and encouraging them to make a donation and enter the giveaways."
Mr. Kruse is Dream Giveaway's 115th grand-prize winner since 2008. To enter a current Dream Giveaway promotion, please visit www.dreamgiveaway.com and use promo code DGWINNERS for double tickets with charity donations of $25 or more.
