Every month, Dream Giveaway Garage brings you a behind-the-scenes look at Dream Giveaway® grand-prizes, the charities that benefit from your donation, the companies that help us build the grand-prize cars, and the lucky winners!

  New Giveaway: Hellcat Dream Giveaway®

We can’t slow the King of Drag Racing down. Of course, we are talking about “Big Daddy” Don Garlits who is back again for the brand-new Hellcat Dream Giveaway. This time it’s your chance to bring home a brand-new 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat powered by Forza Tuning plus $20,000 in taxes.

This amazing 1,000-horsepower muscle car is one-of-a-kind and includes Forza Tuning’s Stage 4 Performance Upgrade (a $16,000 value), engine-bay and interior customization by American Car Craft and carbon-fiber accessories from APR Performance.

Then there’s Don Garlits, who will track test this amazing Hellcat later this year and will autograph it for you if you’re the winner.

With Don’s help, this brand-new 2020 Dodge Charger Hellcat Widebody — already the world’s fastest production four-door sedan — is so powerful that it won’t be sold at Dodge dealers.

If you think you can handle this pavement-pounding muscle car, then enter now with your generous donation. Only one of these Don Garlits’ autographed 2020 Dodge Charger Hellcat Widebodys will ever be built.

Do you enjoy tackling off-road terrains as much as you enjoy driving on city streets?

If you answered “yes,” then listen up because a very important giveaway is about to come to a close and we don’t want you to miss out on your chance to win.

Yes, it’s time for us to wrap up the Bronco Dream Giveaway, which means you only have days left to get to Dreamgiveaway.com, make a generous donation and get your entries to win. The countdown clock above shows you how much time is left to enter.

The awesome 1972 Ford Bronco is built off-road tough with a 392 ci Ford V-8 engine, four-wheel drive, locking axles, four-wheel disc brakes and off-road-ready wheels and tires. It even has a 9,500-lb winch to get you out of those sticky situations.

Building this bucking Bronco took over $100,000 using only the best off-road parts available in the restoration hobby today. It is a no-expense-spared show-truck-quality build with the brawn to get as dirty as you want it to get.

Don’t wait any longer. Click here (www.dreamgiveaway.com/dg/bronco) and get your entries for the Bronco Dream Giveaway before time runs out at midnight on May 26th. Remember, Dream Giveaway will pay the federal taxes on the prize winnings so you don’t have to.

Winner Spotlight: Hellcat Dream Giveaway®

Drive it like you won it.

Those are the words best fitting Bill McCoy of Louisiana, the grand-prize winner in the 2020 Hellcat Dream Giveaway. Bill is now ruling his town’s asphalt jungle with the Don Garlits’ track-tested and autographed Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat “Extreme Redeye.”

It would have made a pretty darn memorable road trip from the Dream Giveaway Garage in Clearwater, Florida, to his town right outside of New Orleans, but Bill had his grand-prize Hellcat delivered to his local Dodge dealer where he was on hand to watch it rolling off the car transporter.

We had a chance to catch up with this very happy Vietnam veteran and ask him how he feels after winning one of the most-sought-after Dream Giveaway grand-prizes of this year.

“Not to downplay the car, which is insane, the best part of winning this Dream Giveaway was getting to talk to Daddy Don,” he says.

Bill is no stranger to Mopar performance and sold his ’68 Hemi-powered Plymouth Roadrunner when he enlisted into the service during the Vietnam War. Now, over 50 years later, his grand-prize Hemi-powered Dodge treats him day in and day out with the unbridled fury of 1,000 horsepower.

We want you to be the next big Dream Giveaway winner. Head on over to www.dreamgiveaway.com and make a heart-felt donation to win your favorite prize package.

We currently have a plethora of incredible muscle-car giveaways ready for you to enter and win — Show and Tow has a ’70 ’Cuda AAR (and a RAM Powerwagon), Shelby has a 2020 GT500 Mustang (and a Shelby F-150), and Bandit has a ’79 Trans Am Special Edition. We have a prize package for everybody and that includes you at www.dreamgiveaway.com.

  Charity Spotlight: National Guard Educational Foundation

When you enter to win the world’s greatest prize packages at DreamGiveaway.com, a generous unrestricted grant benefits the National Guard Educational Foundation. We recently checked in with this national nonprofit and asked its team to share with you some of the priceless artifacts in the National Guard Memorial Museum. You may be surprised how many artifacts from important places and times in American history are on display in this fascinating museum.

The National Guard Educational Foundation’s mission is to educate the public on the history of the National Guard and to expand interest in the nation’s oldest military service — dedicated to protecting and supporting the home front as well as augmenting the United States Army and Air Force on the field of battle overseas. The most important element of the Foundation’s portfolio is the National Guard Memorial Museum. With over 6,000 square feet of exhibit space and over 4,000 artifacts in the collection, the museum is the jewel in the Foundation’s crown.

Upon entering the museum, the visitor may view an actual muster order written in April of 1775 as well as a British musket present in Lexington, Massachusetts, on the morning of “the shot heard ‘round the world.” Just past the Revolutionary War gallery, an early Confederate battle flag captured at the battle of Pea Ridge (AR, 1862) hangs over other significant Civil War artifacts. Walking into the 20th Century Galleries, the visitor is witness to an historical change from state militias into the National Guard of The United States. During World War One, African-American soldiers served their states and the visitor may admire a uniform from the 369th Infantry Regiment (Harlem, NY) — the same regiment Sgt. Henry Johnson served in when he earned the Medal of Honor. In the World War Two exhibit, one may see the brownie camera used by the 41st Infantry Division signal corps to photograph the bombing of Hiroshima and the pistol used to stop the pandemonium at the gates of Dachau Concentration Camp during its liberation. Additionally, an early flight suit bears witness to the fledgling Air National Guard of 1946.

The visitor then steps into the 9/11 Era Gallery, dramatically confronted by a ten-foot tall modern Minuteman statue. The statute strides over tortured steel girders twisted by the intense heat of that fateful attack on the World Trade Center. Cement blocks from the Pentagon, images from Shanksville, Pennsylvania, and air-traffic-control recordings bring the visitor into the 21st Century. The visitor may then follow through Operations Noble Eagle, Enduring Freedom, and Iraqi Freedom to the Wall of the Fallen. With over 780 names, the Memorial Wall somberly recognizes every National Guardsman lost in the Global War on Terror.

The history of the United States National Guard covers over 375 years of the American Experience. The National Guard Educational Foundation’s mission is to tell that story through a wide-ranging portfolio of programs. The National Guard Memorial Museum presents that story with over 2,000 artifacts on permanent display and 2,000 more in environmentally controlled storage. Like the National Guard itself, as long as our mission continues, we are “Always Ready, Always There.”

Visit www.dreamgiveaway.com today and make a heartfelt donation to enter to win some amazing prize packages. When you do so, you’ll be helping America’s oldest defenders of freedom chronicle and preserve American history for the future.
