Shawn Kloter of Ruskin is the BTLS Foundation 2014 raffle winner.

(BTLS Staff) RUSKIN – Shawn Kloter of Ruskin is a happy man these days!

On Saturday the Bay area resident’s name was drawn from over 6,000 entries in the annual Bubba the Love Sponge Foundation’s annual vehicle raffle. The event was held at Elder Ford in Tampa.

“It’s amazing, I’ve never won anything this before,” Shawn explained during Monday’s BTLS broadcast. “I went and did a test drive with the Mustang – it was incredible, I was totally in love with that car – and I filled out all the paperwork. This couldn’t have come at a better time for me.”

Two months ago the engine in his Chevrolet Blazer blew up so Kloter has been toiling around in a used car he got on the cheap from a family member.

In the end Kloter decided to take the prize money.

“I spent a couple days thinking about it, but unfortunately I decided with the taxes and insurance, financially it wasn’t going to work,” he said. “It kills me not to take [the Mustang]. There’s no way I thought I would, this is insane.”

Kloter purchased eight chances for $40, not a bad investment.

All proceeds from the raffle goes to the BTLS Foundation.
