Yardley resident wins Pickering Manor Car Raffle


As Yardley Borough resident Pat Carver approached Pickering Manor on the warm evening of April 22 she never thought her name would be called as the big winner of a new car or $25,000.

The winner of the second‐place prize, a $1,000 Visa gift card, was Michael Giardinelli of Robbinsville, N.J.

As a fundraiser, Pickering Manor began selling car raffle tickets nearly a decade ago and has since become a fundraising tradition. This year the raffle sold close to 600 tickets and raised $25,000 for the nonprofit senior living community, the econd highest in its history of the raffle. Carvers’ winning ticket was picked at the conclusion of a pre‐drawing cocktail hour that was attended by nearly 100 hopeful ticket holders.
