JAR of Hope and All American Ford Raffle Off Mustang Convertible for a Cause

JAR of Hope is a nonprofit that raises money for research into a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). Members of the organization have a close relationship with the All American Auto Group, which will be donating a 2020 Ford Mustang Convertible to the cause. All proceeds will benefit JAR of Hope.

DMD is a rare disease that causes muscles to degenerate, affecting about 20,000 children in the United States. It is a terminal children’s disease with no cure. Jim Raffone, a Monmouth County resident, is the founder and CEO of JAR of Hope. He founded the nonprofit with his wife, Karen, after their son, Jamesy, was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Doctors said that there was nothing they could do for Jamesy, but the Raffones refused to give up.

“No parent should have to hear from a doctor that nothing that can be done to help their child,” Jim Raffone said. “Every raffle ticket that is purchased will help us get one step closer to a world with a cure. I’d like to thank All American Ford for donating this beautiful Mustang to the cause. When I first saw it in their amazing showroom sporting our JAR of Hope green coloring, I knew we had to do something special with it, and the Savino family was all for it.”

The Mustang in this charity raffle is a 2020 Ford Mustang Premium trim with a special black accent package. It boasts a 2.3L EcoBoost engine, 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission and is a convertible. The exterior color is a beautiful Grabber Lime.

To check out the exact Mustang in this contest, visit All American Ford in Old Bridge. Raffle tickets for a chance to win this brand new 2020 Ford Mustang Premium Convertible are just $100, and 100 percent of the proceeds will benefit JAR of Hope. Tickets can be purchased online at JARofHopeMustang.com and are limited to 1,000 total tickets. The raffle will end Tuesday, Nov. 24, and a winner will be announced.
