Farook Mansoor's name was on the winning Rock the Road Raffle ticket pulled by Todd Bourgon, Executive Director, Trillium Automobile Dealers Association, Ted Nash, Chairman of the Board of Prostate Cancer Canada, and Doug Sullivan, Vice President of Trillium Automobile Dealers Association at the 2015 International Auto Show.
Ted Nash, Doug Sullivan and Benny Leung, President of the International AutoShow get ready to pull the lucky winner's name!
The custom-modified 2015 Mustang GT Coupe was donated by TADA to the Rock the Road Raffle so that 100% of the proceeds raised through ticket sales can go directly towards benefiting prostate cancer research. This year Prostate Cancer Canada raised over $220,000!!!
This is more than just a car raffle though, as President and CEO of Prostate Cancer Canada says, "This vehicle reprsents more than just fundraising, men are their own enemies. They don't like going to the doctor. But guys love cars - this is a wonderful way to get guys around the things they love and then talk to them about their health. It's not just the money gonig to research. It's an amazing way to raise awareness of a disease that will affect one in eight Canadian men in their lifetimes."
Farook and his family were happy to support Prostate Cancer Canada, purchasing one of the last tickets available at the Canadian International AutoShow and were even more delighted to get the call that their ticket had been drawn. They returned to the AutoShow the day of the draw to collect the keys to their new ride!

The 2015 Ford Mustang GT is a one-of-a-kind with over $20,000 invested into customization to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Ford "Pony". The car was genoursly provided by Doug Sullivan Vice President of TADA and Owner of Bickley Ford, while the customizations were completed by The Garage in Huntsville Ontario. This car not only looks fast it is capable of hitting 96km/h from zero in 4.4 seconds! That speed is thanks to a 5.0 -liter Ti-VCT V8 that puts out 435 hp and produces 400 lb.-ft. of torque.
