ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Friday, the Alzheimer's Association announced the winner of a classic 1966 mustang.

The candy apple red car has been on display around town for the last few months. More than 200 tickets were sold to hopeful winners. Organizers want to bring attention to Alzheimer disease, which is the 6th leading cause of death, and has no cure. Last year's fundraiser raised $50,000 for the organization.

"That's changing a little bit and we're here to tell people it's our time. It's time to support the Alzheimer's Association and fight this disease," said Dan Phillips.

Ticket number 117, The Sertoma Club of Albany is the winner.
