Dillard to Donate Boat for Charity

Walmart FLW Tour pro Jim Dillard will be giving his boat away to the winner of his charity raffle contest to help benefit the Mia Moo Fund.

Walmart FLW Tour pro Jim Dillard has teamed up with the stars of the popular TV show Duck Dynasty to raffle of his 2014 BassCat Puma FTD with a 250-hp outboard, Minn Kota Fortrex 112 trolling motor, two 12-foot Minn Kota Talons and electronics. The majority of the proceeds from the raffle will benefit the Mia Moo Fund to help raise awareness and fund research and treatments of cleft lip/palate. Raffle tickets can be purchased online for $20 per ticket, and contestants may purchase as many tickets as they would like.

The Mia Moo fund was started in 2014 after Mia Robertson – daughter of the Duck Dynasty stars Jase and Missy Robertson – underwent her final surgery for a cleft lip/palate. As their daughter went in for surgery, the Robertsons noticed the outpour of support for Mia from social media and thought that every kid with a cleft lip/palate should receive the same support and love. Shortly after was the start of the Mia Moo Fund. The non-profit organization strives to bring joy, happiness and a new outlook on life for many children.

Contestants must be 21 years old to enter. The drawing for the boat will be held at EK’s Marine in West Monroe, La., on Nov. 8,  2014.
