Everglades Boats and FFMD team to raffle off 2017 Everglades 243cc

Edgewater, FL – Everglades Boats and the Fishing For Muscular Dystrophy (FFMD) Foundation have joined forces to give one lucky winner a chance to own a 2017 Everglades 243cc for as little as $100.  

This is the latest announcement from the partners, who teamed up last year to increase awareness of muscle disease and to raise money to support research for Muscular Dystrophy and those children and adults affected with neuromuscular diseases.  FFMD chose to use a 435cc to fish at 15 multi-day offshore tournaments along the eastern seaboard and gulf coast throughout 2016.  After an extremely successful 2016 offshore tournament season, the FFMD team has decided to launch an inshore competitive fishing team by adding an Everglades 243cc to their fleet.  FFMD and Everglades Boats will sell raffle tickets from now until November to pick one lucky winner of the 243cc following the 2017 tournament season. 

The 243cc with a Yamaha 300 4-stroke – Everglades’ best-selling model – will include a hard top, second station, an Amera-Trail Aluminum Trailer, and a new custom designed SignZoo wrap (to be provided new for the winner).  In addition, the boat will include state-of-the-art Garmin electronics, a top-of-the-line fishing package, and a premium lighting package from DuraBrite lights and Lumitec, amidst countless other features.

Raffle tickets are $100 each, with all proceeds going to Fishing for MD Foundation, Inc. and the Muscular Dystrophy Association [both 501(c) (3) organizations].  The drawing for the 243cc will be held Friday November 17, 2017 at the Washington DC MDA Muscle Team Gala and broadcast live on Facebook.  DeLeon & Stang, an independent accounting firm, will oversee the raffle selection process.
