Everglades Boats and the Fishing For Muscular Dystrophy Foundation are joining forces to give one lucky winner a chance to own a 2017 Everglades 243cc for as little as $100.

Everglades and the foundation teamed up last year to increase awareness of muscle disease and raise money to support research for muscular dystrophy and children and adults affected with neuromuscular diseases.

The foundation used a 435cc to fish at 15 multiday offshore tournaments along the Eastern Seaboard and Gulf Coast in 2016. After an extremely successful 2016 offshore tournament season, the foundation has decided to launch an inshore competitive fishing team by adding an Everglades 243cc to its fleet.

The foundation and Everglades Boats said they will sell raffle tickets from now until November to pick a winner of the 243cc after 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).

The boat also 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.

Raffle tickets cost $100. All proceeds will go to the foundation and the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

The drawing for the 243cc will be held Nov. 17 at the Washington, D.C., MDA Muscle Team Gala and broadcast live on Facebook. The accounting firm DeLeon & Stang will oversee the raffle selection process.

Those who want to enter the raffle can visit www.ffmdraffle.org, www.EvergladesBoats.com, speak to a foundation representative or visit their local Everglades dealer.
