American Bank employee wins donated 1969 MGB Roadster

Sunday, December 29, 2019 by The Press in School

After six months of ticket sales that raised $26,450, the Parkland Education Foundation chose the winner of a donated 1969 MGB Roadster at the Harlem Wizards Game Nov. 21, 2019, at Parkland High School.

The winner, Anne DeSantos, an employee at American Bank, was not in the 1,200-plus crowd of people, but was a local winner.

The car donation was a generous gesture on behalf of Barry and Marcy Dobil, owners of Josh Early Candies, and high school sweethearts, who both graduated with Parkland’s Class of 1969.
