This Jeep Wrangler was intended as a retirement gift for Eldon, and while that can no longer be the case, we believe the best way to honor Eldon’s legacy is to give the vehicle away as part of a charity raffle.

2,000 tickets will be sold for the raffle at a price of $100 each. The raffle winner will be able to take home the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport S, or receive a $40,000 cash offer from the dealership to sell back the vehicle.

100% of the proceeds from the raffle will be used to support organizations that were important to Eldon Gerber during his life. Funds raised through the raffle will go to CAMO (Central American Medical Outreach), the Kidron Community Fund, Kidron Community Park, the Kidron Volunteer Fire Department, and the Boy Scouts of America.


The Kidron Community Park is home to a community building, recreational building, two baseball diamonds, play areas, walking paths, and a picnic pavilion, serving as a much-loved community gathering place. The Boy Scouts of America has provided service, community engagement, and leadership opportunities for youth since its founding in 1910.

Described as a man of faith who “never knew a stranger,” the Gerber Lumber & Hardware team is eager to raise additional funds for organizations dear to Eldon that do good both in the Kidron community and abroad.

The Gerber Lumber & Hardware team also gratefully acknowledges the willingness of the Kidron Volunteer Fire Department in holding the raffle as part of their chicken dinner fundraiser. The Firemens’ Chicken BBQ has been a community staple for over 60 years, providing an opportunity for locals to enjoy food, fun, and fellowship. This year, the fire department plans to cook 6,000 chicken halves to meet demand.

As with previous years, drive-through orders of chicken only will be available at Central Christian High School beginning at 3:30 p.m. Full meals will be available at Kidron Community Park beginning at 4:30 p.m. Orders will be available at both locations until the chicken has sold out.

In addition to the chicken dinners, the Kidron Volunteer Fire Department plans to offer several activities from years past, such as pony rides for children and live music from a local band. Raffle tickets will be available at the Kidron Community Park, with the winner announced the night of the event. Tickets can also be purchased in advance through the Gerber Lumber website. Online ticket purchases will be delivered via email.
