MSU College of Human Medicine Raffling New Car for Fundraiser

CREATED Dec. 9, 2013

The MSU College of Human Medicine is raffling a 2013 MINI Cooper to fundraise for new research equipment used to study Parkinson’s and other neurological diseases.

The two-door sedan, imported from England and painted green and white, will be raffled off at $100 a ticket. All proceeds will go toward purchasing the new equipment, a laser scanning confocal microscope.

George Sharpe, owner of four Grand Rapids auto dealerships, offered to finance the cost of purchasing the vehicle. Sharpe is a member of MSU’s Translational Science and Molecular Medicine Department’s Community Engagement Board and was diagnosed with Parkinson’s four years ago.

Raffle tickets are $100 each and may be purchased at MINI of Grand Rapids or online here. The raffle will end April 14, and the drawing will take place at 7 p.m. on that day. The College of Human Medicine is limiting ticket sales to 2,500, enough to cover the cost of the microscope.
