Last month, the winner of the 2018 Blue Ridge Public Radio Ticket To Ride Summer Raffle was selected at random and announced live, on the air. Michael Carlebach of Asheville couldn't believe his luck, but was absolutely delighted. He bought the ticket because he thought it was a fun way to support the station, but he didn't think he'd actually win. 

The winner for Blue Ridge Public Radio's 2018 Ticket to Ride Summer Raffle was drawn at 5:34, live on-air in the Blue Ridge Public Radio studios. The winner is Michael Carlebach of Asheville! Congratulations! 

Michael will choose between a VW Tiguan and an Audi A3 from Harmony motors. We'll post more pictures when he claims his prize.
