Ford Hosts Custom 2020 Shelby GT500 Giveaway to Fund Diabetes Research


Ford isn’t just a motor company, they also strive to make people’s lives better. Ford continues to prove their charitable ways through their latest team-up with JDRF, a non-profit organization that funds type 1 diabetes research. 


In fact, Ford and JDRF have been teaming up for charity vehicle raffles for nearly a decade now. The latest giveaway will star the all-new and much hyped 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, except this custom model has some exciting and unique features.


First of all, the vehicle’s exterior appearance is adorned with the one-of-a-kind Venom metallic clearcoat paint job (a striking charcoal color) and twin black racing stripes painted overtop. The performance car is equipped with the Carbon Fiber Track Package, which includes exposed carbon fiber wheels. 


That’s not all. This Shelby also features Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, rear-seat delete, Recaro®  leather-trimmed seats, and Mustang’s GT4 track wing.


With this year’s raffle, Ford helps to sell 75,000 tickets, the proceeds of which will be used to help JDRF fund their many ongoing research projects as they work to find a cure for Type 1 diabetes. 


“Building on the excitement around GT500 is a terrific way to help JDRF fund research and help find a cure for Type 1 diabetes,” said Dave Pericak, Ford’s director of enterprise product line management. “Not only does this raffle provide an opportunity to win the most powerful production Ford ever, it also speaks to how Ford strives to make people’s lives better.”


First place winner takes home the custom Shelby, but the runner-up will also benefit from an all-inclusive VIP race experience for two to the next year’s Great American Race, the 2020 Daytona 500.


Tickets are only $10, and can be purchased online at https://p2p.onecause.com/jdrfgt500 from now until Nov. 10. The drawing will be held on Nov. 14 at the Ford Conference and Event Center in Dearborn, Michigan, but the winner doesn’t have to be present to win.


The upcoming 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 will be the quickest-accelerating street-legal Mustang ever produced by Ford. Be sure to stop by Keller Bros. Ford in Lititz to see it for yourself!
