Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A., just announced the donation of a 2017 MULE PRO-FXT™ LE to benefit Boys Town California to be auctioned off at the annual Night of Hope event, November 5th, 2017. With an MSRP of $16,099 this powerful Kawasaki product is sure to garner tremendous attention. The auction will be hosted at The Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach, California.
This limited edition 2017 MULE PRO-FXT has incomparable strength and endless durability backed by over a century of Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. engineering knowledge. The PRO FXT side x side’s three-passenger Trans-Cab™ system can easily convert to six-passenger mode for a revolutionary new way to work and play. The 2017 MULE PRO series of side x sides feature the fastest and most powerful MULE™ models Kawasaki has ever built.
The Kawasaki MULE PRO-FXT is a leader in torque with a new 812cc, three-cylinder engine that produces a stump-pulling 48 ft-lb(2) and is mated to a specially tuned Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). In addition, the MULE PRO-FXT has a short overall length and wheelbase, making it more maneuverable than the competition. This new chassis delivers a tight turning radius, large bed capacity and outstanding towing ability. With its roomy interior and Roll Over Protective Structure (ROPS), the MULE PRO-FXT will keep passengers secure and comfortable on the farm, worksite or trail.
Boys Town California has a significant achievement for this year’s auction, as it will be celebrating its 25th year. Next year, Boys Town will be celebrating its 100th anniversary of servicing the United States.
“We’re excited to be able to help benefit such an incredible cause, again this year,” said Bill Jenkins, Senior Vice President, Sales Operations at Kawasaki Motors Corp. U.S.A., and member of the Boys Town California Board of Directors. “The Boys Town of California helps children and families in need and the Night of Hope is a major event for Orange County, I’m pleased that Kawasaki, as a longstanding resident of Orange County, is stepping up to support for the second year in a row.”
Boys Town California was started in 1991 with the mission of providing programs focused on saving children of abuse in Southern California. Boys Town operates seven family homes in the region, reserved for youth who are unable to return to their homes as a result of abuse or neglect. In an effort to prevent out-of-home placement and keep families intact, Boys Town also provides intervention assistance through in-home family services and community support services.
Just last year the Night of Hope raised over $140,000, with all proceeds going directly to children and families in need. For information about the 2016 Night of Hope gala and auction participation, please visit www.boystown.org/california or Call 714-856-4356.
