Sevinor, Make-A-Wish Massachusetts and Rhode Island chief development officer Susan Payson and Make-A-Wish public relations manager Jordan Salvatoriello celebrate the Sevinors’ charitable donation of their raffle win.

Ralph Wayne Sevinor, president of Wayne Alarm Systems Inc., and his wife, Stacey, of Lynnfield won a raffle for the lease of a 2017 E 300 Mercedes-Benz, donated by Flagship Motorcars of Lynnfield/A Herb Chambers Company at the annual “Best of the North Shore” party hosted by Northshore magazine. And then they gave their prize to charity.

The Sevinors donated the cash equivalent of the prize to three local organizations: Make-A-Wish Massachusetts and Rhode Island, YMCA of the North Shore and Beverly Hospital.

With an additional contribution of about $1,500 from Northshore magazine, the total donation is $24,000 with each organization receiving $8,000.

ALSO: Do you prefer apple pie or pumpkin pie?

Make-A-Wish Massachusetts and Rhode Island grants wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions. The Sevinors have been supporters of the organization since 1999 and the $8,000 received is enough to grant an entire wish.
