During the week of the Regatta this car, in addition to a selection of other popular brands, were on display in the Regatta Village showcasing the wide variety of cars available for sale on the island. The display was encouraging people to purchase raffle tickets and have a chance to win the new Hyundai Creta, in support of the island's various environmental projects.

Working together, we have successfully organized another memorable and enjoyable St. Maarten Heineken Regatta. We congratulate The Rotary clubs and everyone for their involvement and of course the winner, Mr. Soons. With the current promotions on the New 2019 Hyundai Creta, everyone can be a winner. Visit our showroom and our dedicated Sales Team can work out a great deal for you!" mentioned Tariq Amjad, Managing Director, Motorworld Group of Companies.

Rotary Club of St. Maarten's President John Caputo says: "The Island is now one step closer to having a proper beach cleaning machine and this car raffle fundraiser almost gets us there. The Rotary Clubs of St. Maarten are working diligently to help make St. Maarten a better place to live or visit and we certainly thank all those who purchased a ticket in support of this endeavor. Even if you didn't win the car, you have helped ensure that our beaches will remain pristine for decades to come," said John Caputo, the President of the Rotary Club of Sint Maarten."

President of the Rotary Club St. Maarten-Mid Isle, Denise Antrobus adds: "On behalf of the Rotary Club of St. Maarten-Mid Isle, I would like to congratulate Mr. Soons on winning the car raffle.
