Milwaukee-based Douglas Dynamics brands Fisher and SnowEx announced the winners of their Susan G. Komen Foundation benefit raffle. Anna Miller from Casa Grande, Arizona, won a limited-edition pink Fisher XV2 V-plow, and Chad Green from Dyer, Indiana, won a SnowEx Helixx with a pink poly hopper spreader. The winners bought their tickets at the 2019 Green Industry and Equipment Expo in Louisville, Kentucky, held Oct. 16-18.

For the seventh year in a row, the two snow removal products companies have sold raffle tickets at GIE+Expo to benefit the nonprofit breast cancer organization. This years’ ticket sales netted $11,173, all of which will go to Susan G. Komen Kentucky. Douglas Dynamics has raised more than $85,000 for the charity since 2013.

“We’re thrilled to announce the money raised for Susan G. Komen Kentucky through our equipment raffles at GIE+Expo,” says Katie Sandieson, director of advertising and business communications for Douglas Dynamics. “Given the timing of the show coinciding with Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and the great support we’ve consistently received from lawn and landscape professionals, this has always been the ideal event to focus our efforts. We’d like to thank everyone who helped make this another successful fundraising year!”

Booth space for the promotion at GIE+Expo was donated by Sellers Expositions; Hedstrom Plastics donated the pink poly hopper for the Helixx hopper spreader and Fern Exposition Services donated the booth furnishings.

Susan G. Komen is a leading nonprofit breast cancer organization, working to save lives and end breast cancer forever.
