South Mississippi raffle to provide more help for Moore, OK

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

If you saw Good Morning Mississippi, you know South Mississippians have a chance to help the recovery efforts in tornado ravaged Moore, Oklahoma.  And in the process, one person will walk away with a Chrysler Sebring convertible.

To enter the raffle, visit Champion Chrysler on Pass Road in Gulfport.  A $5 donation gives you a shot to win the car.  And the money goes to the American Red Cross and its tornado relief efforts.

More than 20 people died when huge tornados whipped through Oklahoma last spring.  And scores of others lost their homes, and many of their possessions.  Since then, people from Mississippi have graciously provided relief assistance to those victims.  The Champion Chrysler raffle is another example of how hurricane victims here can help tornado victims several hundred miles northwest of the coast.

The winning raffle ticket will be drawn Wednesday at the Gulfport Chrysler dealership.

    In many areas of Front Beach in Ocean Springs, the sand is almost gone, blown away by gusty winds and choppy seas. But with the help of a $150,000 state tidelands grant, the city is hoping a program called "The Living Shoreline" will provide a permanent solution.
