COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - For the 16th year in a row Mercedes-Benz of Columbus hosted their Charity Heart Raffle drawing on Sunday.

John Wells of Columbus and Greg Neischwanter of Opelika were announced as the winners of the grand prize: a new $50,000 Mercedes-Benz.

The car dealership spent the last several months selling tickets for their “Reverse Raffle," and on Sunday afternoon the 2 last standing tickets were revealed.

Neither of the winners were in attendance, but they were contacted shortly after the announcement to schedule a day to pick up their prize.
