When I bought my three tickets, I just considered it a donation to the school because I never thought I’d win. When I heard my name, I just sat there stunned – it was unreal.

Rusty Wallis Honda, a Dallas Honda dealer, recently donated a new car for the Heritage Christian Academy’s annual Black & Red Bash fundraiser and gala. Participants could purchase a $25 ticket for a chance to win the car.
“This was our fourth year to donate a car to the school’s event, and each year gets better and better,” said Rusty Wallis, owner of Rusty Wallis Honda and Rusty Wallis Volkswagen.
The annual gala and auction was held March 25 at the Hampton Inn & Suites in Mesquite, Texas, where the winning ticket was announced. Sarah Walker, a middle school math teacher at Heritage Christian Academy, was selected as the winner.
“When I bought my three tickets, I just considered it a donation to the school because I never thought I’d win,” said Walker. “When I heard my name, I just sat there stunned – it was unreal.”
Walker could choose from six different Honda and Volkswagen models and selected a 2011 Civic EXL with navigation, which she will drive as her primary vehicle.
The week prior to winning the vehicle, Walker had conducted a lesson for her students on the principles of interest and how to spend money wisely, emphasizing the fact that few people ever win anything.
“I had a lot of explaining to do for my students when I drove up in a new car,” Walker said jokingly, “but I can’t thank Rusty enough for his generosity to the school.”
Rusty Wallis Honda and Rusty Wallis Volkswagen plan to continue giving back to the community through various partnerships and events.
