Congratulations to Lieutenant Anthony Greathouse of the New Jersey Department of Corrections! He purchased the winning raffle ticket for the 2009 Harley-Davidson FLHTCU Peace Officers Special Edition motorcycle.
A 25-year veteran of the Corrections Department, Lieutenant Greathouse bought three tickets -- including the winner -- on Wednesday, May 13, through the special toll-free number set up by the NLEOMF for raffle ticket purchases. The raffle drawing was held at 5 pm on May 15, at the NLEOMF Visitors Center & Store, 400 7th Street, NW, Washington, DC.
The Memorial Fund thanks everyone who bought raffle tickets this spring in support of the National Law Enforcement Museum. More than 3,300 tickets were purchased at $25 each, raising upwards of $84,000 for the Museum's "Matter of Honor" campaign.
Thanks, also, to Harley-Davidson. In 2007, the company announced it was donating three brand new motorcycles to the Memorial Fund in support of the Museum campaign. Two previous raffles raised approximately $50,000. With the latest raffle, the total has surged to more than $133,500.
Because of their generosity and the support of everyone who purchased tickets for all three Harley-Davidson raffles, the vision of the National Law Enforcement Museum will become a reality in a few short years.
