The Dixie Youth Baseball state tournament was underway in Purvis today and to help raise money for expansion of the baseball facilities, the owner of Purvis Jewelry, Aaron Lott, donated a 1928 Ford Model A to be raffled off at the Purvis Youth Complex.
Angela Debate, of Purvis, won the antique car after purchasing a raffle ticket a mere 10 minutes before the deadline.
Each raffle ticket cost $50 with a total of 87 individuals vying for a chance to drive away the definition of an old school car.
While the Ford was a huge attraction, hundreds of parents and residents turned out to see their 5 and 6-years-olds square off in the regional tournament.
Lott shared his thoughts on being involved in today's event.
"We are extremely overloaded with children in Purvis. It's a good problem to have. We're out of fields and this was just a way to help raise funds to build our new fields," said Lott.
Mississippi Dixie Youth state director Tommy Rheams was also honored to be in Purvis for the cause.
"People's [have to] volunteer to keep these things going like this. I got involved 32 years ago and I'm still involved and I enjoy it," Rheams proclaimed.
"I enjoy the kids, that's what I'm out here for."
