Beck’s Hybrids reveals “Panther” for charity

For the second year in a row, Beck’s Hybrids is pleased to announce the We Care for Orphans Adoption Fund Sweepstakes. The Sweepstakes will kick off at the 2012 Indianapolis 500, where event goers will have the opportunity to win a 2012 Limited Edition Supercharged Camaro PantherTM by SLP. But it doesn’t stop there, the winner will receive the number one car out of only 100 Panther’s being produced.

“It’s not every day that you get the opportunity to raise money for a great cause, plus have the opportunity to win one of the rarest Camaros to ever be produced,” said Scott Beck, vice president of Beck’s Hybrids. “Last year, a total of $85,543 was raised for the charity and more than 20 families were helped. This year, with the help of farmers and car enthusiasts from across the United States, our goal is to reach $100,000.”

Painted black with gold accents, the supercharged Panther is a convertible and has a 6.2 liter, 427 cubic inch engine with aluminum short block and heads producing 600 horse-power. The name “Panther” originated in 1965 when Chevrolet was working on a project to rival the Mustang. Before going to production the name was changed to Camaro.

“Adoption is not only a passion for me and my family, but a topic that hits home with many Beck’s Hybrids employees and customers,” said Shantel Beck, founder of We Care for Orphans Adoption Fund. “Adoption is an expensive journey and with the financial help of We Care for Orphans many adoptions will become a reality.”

The car will be on tour from May 25, 2012 to May 12, 2013 and visit more than 15 agricultural events and car shows. The drawing will be held on May 13, 2013 with the winner being announced at the 2013 Indianapolis 500 on May 26. Donations will be accepted at all events with proceeds going to We Care for Orphans. In addition, We Care for Orphans t-shirts will be on sale with all proceeds going to the charity.
