United Way of Delaware continues to show its appreciation to those who donate to the non-profit organization.

It’s become an annual tradition to put one new or existing donor in a new ride thanks to a partnership with Kia of Wilmington and Auto Team Delaware. This year’s winner is Dr. Christopher Murphy of Newark, DE who drove off in a 2015 Kia Optima on Tuesday.

All Delaware residents who donate $52 or increase their contribution by that much were eligible. United Way of Delaware offers a number of services that people can contribute to including education and health.

Last year’s campaign brought in more than $570,000 from nearly 3,000 contributors.
