Mark Pieloch, a pet pharmaceuticals exec, has donated a classic car from his personal collection to raise funds for the Capital Humane Society in Lincoln, NE.

LINCOLN, Neb., June 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Pet pharmaceuticals executive and classic car enthusiast, Mark Pieloch, has donated a completely restored 1970 Chevelle SS Coupe to be used in a fundraiser for the the Capital Humane Society in Lincoln, NE. The coupe will be raffled off on October 10, 2014. Five hundred and fifty raffle tickets are available for sale at $100 each. After costs, the net proceeds to the humane society will be approximately $52,000

In 2011, the Society was raising funds to build a new adoption center and Pieloch donated $1.5 million to the cause. The result was the 15,000 square foot Pieloch Pet Adoption Center. The new Adoption Center opened its doors at 6500 S. 70th Street in July 2013. The organization also maintains its older location on Park Boulevard as an Admissions and Assessment Center. Proceeds from the raffle will go into the Capital Humane Society's operating budget.

"It's a never-ending challenge to raises funds to operate a non-profit organization, and I'm fortunate enough to be able to donate a really special item that will raise a lot of money for the humane society and for that I'm grateful," explained Mark Pieloch (www.markpieloch.net).

The Mark Pieloch Classic Car Collection currently contains 137 classic and antique automobiles. The majority of the cars are muscle cars from 1960-1971. The cars are in pristine condition with one-quarter of them having less than 200 miles on the odometer. The collection includes 25 Indy Pace cars and 80 first place National Show cars. Besides the Chevelle, the collection contains 30 Corvettes, 25 Camaros and 10 Yenkos.

The Chevelle is on display at DuTeau Chevrolet, 7300 S. 27th Street. Raffle tickets are available for purchase at the dealership as well as at both humane society locations.
