      Together in Megan's Eyes (TIME), Megan's House and Easter Seals of Southern Georgia teamed up to hold a Superbowl gift package raffle just in time for the game.

      On Thursday, Ty Christian West, who was recently named the first official recipient of Project Lifesaver in Albany, pulled the winning ticket at the Easter Seals office in Albany.

      Ann Ethridge of Leesburg was picked to receive a 43" Samsung flat screen television and a "game day" basket full of snacks.

      The money raised will go towards purchasing a handicap accessible van for Megan's House and a respite home for children with disabilities. The group says they've now almost at their goal to purchase the van, something they've been saving up for for about a year and a half.

      TIME President and Megan's mother, Carol Holloman, said some of these children don't get to go outside other than traveling to and from the doctor's office, but having the van will allow them to socialize with the world and go on field trips.
