Paul Moak Volvo is very proud to continue its partnership with the Mississippi Nurses Foundation as the sponsor of the 2013 MNF raffle fundraiser “Nurses and Volvos both save lives!” “We are continually impressed with the Foundation’s work to assist and support nurses and nursing students throughout the state in the form of scholarships and continuing education. The 2012 MNF/Volvo raffle is your chance to not only participate in and support these efforts, but potentially win a brand new car, dream vacation, or a cash prize in the process,” said John Scarbrough, Vice President of Paul Moak Automotive, Inc.
The First Prize Option: Get excited about the 2014 Volvo XC60!
The 5-passenger Volvo XC60 crossover takes safety, fuel efficiency, and luxury design to a new level. To keep up with its dynamic design, athletic purpose, and surprising agility, engineers at Volvo equipped this highly capable crossover with a world’s first in automotive safety innovations. The XC60 is the car that stops itself in order to prevent collisions in stop-and-go traffic. At 31 mph or less, City Safety, which comes standard on every XC60 model, detects a stopped or slower-moving car in front of you, and applies the brakes. But if being smart, swift and powerful isn’t enough, there’s the attractive beauty. With Scandinavian simplicity, the XC60’s award-winning interior is full of beauty and surprises, including folding rear seats for additional versatility and storage.
We invite you to visit us at Paul Moak Volvo located off of I-55 & High Street in Jackson and test drive the S60 to learn more about the vehicle and the three-year lease prize.
The Second Prize Option: A seven-day European dream vacation. This trip-of-a-lifetime includes first-class hotel accommodations, as well as roundtrip airfare for two on Scandinavian Airlines or British Airways from your home to Gothenburg, Sweden, the home of Volvo. Vibrant Gothenburg, the gateway to West Sweden, is a coastal city with a lively cultural scene, stylish shopping, and a fast-growing reputation as a foodie hotbed. Discover quaint canals, the cobbled streets of historical Haga and countless green open spaces, including Sweden’s largest
botanical gardens, boasting over 16,000 species. Immerse yourself in the Swedish lifestyle, soaking up the buzzing outdoor café culture, indulging in food markets and fine restaurants, and visiting impressive museums.
The Third Prize Option: A $10,000 cash prize is the third option available to the raffle winner, and will be administered by MNF.
How to Buy a $50 Ticket: Online, at Paul Moak Volvo or call the Nurses Foundation office at 601-898-0850.
Now it’s your turn to buy raffle tickets and help us spread the word about this fun, incredible opportunity to support nursing throughout our great state. We hope to see you at the MNA

From Our Executive Director
As I closeout my third year as Executive Director for the Nurses’ Foundation, I can truly say I’ve learned a lot, about people and why they give to certain causes. I’ve learned just because I think my idea will change and save the world, others may disagree and let me know they disagree, but the most important thing I’ve learned that continues to hold true, is that nurses really do touch lives. They have proven themselves over and over, and that bit of truth give me courage and confidence to perfect my job in supporting nurses through the Foundation. Because “Nurses Touch Lives” is more than just a brand, it’s what we stand by when we advocate, promote and say the name “nurse” in our quest to raise money and awareness of the Foundation. I am confident we are on the move to greatness but “total greatness“ cannot be realized without your help. Please make a committment to support nurses and the Foundation in 2012. Read More >>
