Winner of new set of wheels donates it to Wheels for Kids

Andy Masciarella doesn’t really need a new car, apparently.

He won a new Honda Civic in a raffle Thursday night as part of the American Honda Birdies for Children charity program and opted to give it to Wheels for Kids instead. The organization gives customized wheelchairs to children in need.

Nineteen people were eligible to win the car in a raffle at the Wyndham Grand Jupiter at Harbourside by correctly predicting the number of birdies – 1,168 – in this year’s Honda Classic. The tournament was at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens in February.

Four of those people planned to give it Wheels for Kids if they won, President Denise Roeser said.
