July 14, 2010 (Georgetown, TX) – Veteran Outdoors, in an effort to raise funds for their non-profit organization, began selling tickets to a raffle drawing for a Polaris Ranger CREW. The raffle will conclude during a public drawing to be held in January at a location to be determined.
Prices are ten dollars for a single chance, $35 for five and $50 for ten. Tickets for the raffle will be sold at upcoming trade shows and are available for purchase online at www.veteranoutdoors.com. All proceeds from the selling of raffle tickets benefits the wounded veterans taken on the hunting and fishing adventures Veteran Outdoors provides.
“We appreciate everyone who has donated to our mission in the past,” said Cody Hirt, host of the Veteran Outdoors television show, “this Polaris is going to make a deserving person very happy in January.”
Hirt said a large percentage of the funds driving the non-profit organization are generated from events, such as the raffle and benefit auctions held around the state.
“We know how important it is to make sure our wounded veterans know that their sacrifice is appreciated and their sacrifice hasn’t gone unnoticed,” Hirt said. “We want to do all we can.”
With the help from fabrication specialists, Critter Gitters, League City, TX, the UTV has been outfitted with a Custom Color Extreme Liner and a heavy-duty roof. Danek Iron Works, Jarrell, TX, has also contributed to the UTV by adding a hand-made, powder-coated high seat with an adjustable shooting bar.
Polaris Industries was established as the official UTV of Veteran Outdoors, for season two. In doing so, they also supplied Veteran Outdoors with two Polaris Ranger CREWs utilized during the filming of episodes for season two.
