    Woody's 8th Annual Charity Golf Outing raises $13,687 for Pink Ribbon Riders

    Hope, MI: Woody's Traction, the foremost manufacturer of snowmobile traction products, was able to reciprocate the support received from their industry and community by hosting their 8th Annual Charity Golf Outing at Beech Hollow Golf Course in Freeland, MI on August 11, 2017. Together, supporters helped raise funds through sponsorships, donations, and event participation to benefit Pink Ribbon Riders (PRR), which totaled in the amount of $13,687 at this single-day event. To date, Woody's has proudly donated almost $90,000 to their friends at PRR, which in turn has been dispersed to the many men and women suffering from breast cancer in their home state of Michigan.

     The PRR is a small, volunteer-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides direct financial assistance to men and women diagnosed with breast cancer. Jody McKay, co-founder of PRR, expressed her gratitude by saying, "It is with great appreciation to Woody's, the participants, volunteers, and supporters for the continued support you all have given to the Pink Ribbon Riders over the years. It is always nice to see new faces at the event, but even better to see those once-a-year faces that feel like we are just long distance family when we see each other. Thank you from the 'bottom' and the 'top' of our hearts." More details on PRR can be found at www.pinkribbonriders.com.

    Throughout the course of 18 holes were 50/50 drawings, silent auction items, hole prizes including a $10K hole in one (Sponsored by Diebold Insurance), a bake sale, a Buffalo Wild Wings betting hole and a fun atmosphere. New to the event this year were four fish bowl prize drawings, which alone raised an exciting total of $1,860! To wrap up the day, Beech Hollow Golf Course fired up their grill to provide an outstanding chicken dinner to all participants, while a recipient of PRR, Melinda Davila, shared her battle of overcoming breast cancer.
