Everglades and FFMD joined forces earlier this year to give one lucky winner a chance to own a 2017 Everglades 243cc for as little as $100. Interested supporters bought $100 raffle tickets for a chance at winning the brand new boat. Raffle ticket sales generated more than $200,000 with proceeds going to benefit FFMD and the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) in their efforts to increase awareness of muscle disease and to support research for Muscular Dystrophy. The winner was pulled at the Washington DC MDA Muscle Team Gala in November.

Everglades dealers nationwide worked extremely hard all year long to sell thousands of tickets – ultimately the winner was Matt Montgomery of Ormond Beach. The Everglades team couldn’t be prouder to see FFMD represented locally. “We’d like to extend our most sincere congratulations to Matt Montgomery and his family. We are so proud to be partnered with such an incredible cause and hope the boat brings the Montgomery family lots of joy for years to come” Said Bryan Harris, VP of Sales and Marketing.

The 243cc with Yamaha 300 4-stroke – Everglades’ best-selling model – will include a hard top, upper second station, twin lifting platforms, an Amera-Trail Aluminum Trailer, and a Sign Zoo Wrap (to be provided new for the winner). In addition, the boat will include state-of-the-art electronics, a top-of-the-line fishing package, and Everglades’ premium lighting package, amidst countless other features.
