Car stolen in north Georgia before it can be raffled to raise funds

Posted: Updated:

CANTON, GA (AP) - Family members who planned to raffle a car to help pay for their daughter's medical care say the vehicle has been stolen.

Plans called for proceeds from the raffle to help pay for care Erin Holt received after a 2013 traffic crash.

An Atlanta television station reports Holt, a former soccer player at Walton High School and Armstrong Atlantic State University, is in a wheelchair with a brace on her arm and leg.

The Holts say the plan was to raffle a 1987 Nissan 300 ZX, hoping to sell 1,000 raffle tickets at $10 each. Erin's father, Ben Holt, said the $10,000 would have helped to pay for Erin's therapy.

He said the car was in a warehouse parking lot in Canton when it was stolen. Canton police are searching for it.
