There are only 45 days left in the Fishing for Muscular Dystrophy boat raffle, and we have an exciting development to tell you about! Hint: if you thought the deal was sweet before...wait until you find out what's been added to this prize package!
Last year, the first FFMD raffle was a huge success, with over 2,000 tickets sold. This year, FFMD founder Paul Robertson is aiming for 3,000. That would equate to nearly $300,000 in proceeds to benefit the FFMD Foundation, the Muscular Dystrophy Association (both 501(c)(3) organizations) and the MDA's Summer Camp program! And another BIG name brand has thrown their support behind FFMD.
When you buy a raffle ticket, you have a chance to win not just the fully loaded Everglades 243cc (our best-selling, award-winning center console bay boat!) not just the custom, dual axle aluminum trailer from Amera-Trail, but also this brand new 2018 Ford to tow it all! Apple Ford Lincoln of Columbia, Maryland has graciously donated a Ford F-150 STX crew cab pickup, complete with a 36-month prepaid lease, and while it currently wears a promotional wrap by SignZoo to help raise awareness for the raffle, underneath it sports a beautiful, Magma Red paint job. Now all you'll need if you win is a sunny day and some bait!
Before the lucky winner is drawn on November 4th, the boat, truck and trailer will be on display at the Annapolis Boat Show (see our Events page). After that, it will be a highlight of the MDA's Muscle Team Gala on October 19th in D.C., then it's off to the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, where it will be elevated above the Everglades booth in the convention center. The drawing will be conducted by Deleon & Stang, a third-party independent accounting firm, and will be broadcasted LIVE from the booth at FLIBS, across both FFMD's and Everglades Boats' social channels. Make sure you're following us, and tune in on November 4th!

Remember, proceeds from the raffle ticket sales not only help FFMD, but will help send children living with neuromuscular diseases to one of the dozens of multi-day summer camps hosted by the MDA. Even if you don't win, a child with MD will.
