Poulsbo woman wins Mini Cooper in LeMay raffle

Cami Apfelbeck walked out of LeMay: America’s Car Museum after a Father’s Day day-trip visit from Poulsbo. She was walking to her car in the parking lot and turned around and ventured back into the museum to buy a single $20 ticket for the museum’s Mini Cooper raffle.

She didn’t think anything of it at the time. Then she got the call that she won the 2013 Mini Cooper S Hardtop that was donated by Puget Sound MINI, which had pooled its marketing budget from its Fife and Seattle location. The new car couldn’t have come at a better time. Apfelbeck had been without a car for two months after she gave her's to her son.

“I guess I had the golden ticket,” she said, noting that she was never much of a car enthusiast, although she had test driven the Mini Cooper a few month ago when she started a search for a new car.

The raffle raised about $40,000 for the museum operations in its second event. Last year’s raffle gave away a Ford Mustang, courtesy of Titus Will.

The Mini Cooper S offers 181 horsepower under the engine that gets between 29 and 35 miles per gallon, depending on driving conditions and additions.
