Harley Winner Picks Up Bike!
National Police Week raffle winner, Lt. Anthony Greathouse of the New Jersey Department of Corrections, picked up his 2009 Harley-Davidson FLHTCU Peace Officers Special Edition motorcycle this morning from the Memorial Fund Visitors Center & Store in Washington, DC.
Lt. Greathouse bought three raffle tickets on May 13. When he received the phone call two days later that he had won, he said it didn't sink in for a while, until he went online and saw his name on the NLEOMF website. Recalling the congratulatory phone call he received from Herb Giobbi, the NLEOMF's chief operating officer, Lt. Greathouse said, "Honestly, (I) thought somebody was just joking with me."
Lt. Greathouse, recovering from surgery for a knee injury sustained while on duty, was unable to ride the motorcycle home. He and his fiancée are having it towed back to New Jersey, and he's looking forward to taking it for a ride after a full recovery.
As for advice to others interested in buying tickets in future NLEOMF Harley raffles, Lt. Greathouse said, "If nothing else, the money helps support the Museum and the Memorial, which is the important thing.... Strange things happen - I'm an example."
