Project EvergreenCLEVELAND, Ohio — Green industry contractors can take a chance on winning a top-of-the-line Exmark Lazer Z X-Series—worth more than $14,000—by purchasing a ticket for the Project EverGreen Great Mower Giveaway Raffle.

With generous support from Exmark, Project EverGreen is seeking to increase funding levels to further expand its “Healthy Turf. Healthy Kids.” Initiative that is revitalizing recreational and athletic green spaces across the country.

HealthyTurfProjects in Cleveland and Atlanta have already been completed with additional programs scheduled this fall in Milwaukee; Chicago; Portland, Oregon; Greensboro, Raleigh and Durham, North Carolina; and San Antonio, Ft. Worth and Round Rock, Texas.

When purchasing a Great Mower Giveaway Raffle ticket green industry professionals are eligible to win:

  • Exmark Lazer Z X-Series mower equipped with the new suspended operator platform providing 3.6 inches of controlled travel in vertical and fore/aft directions; a 60-inch UltraCut Series 6 cutting deck; and a Kawasaki FX801V twin-cylinder engine.

“Project EverGreen is thrilled to partner with Exmark on this opportunity to raise awareness of programs—particularly ‘Healthy Turf. Healthy Kids.’—that personify the benefits of green spaces,” said Cindy Code, Project EverGreen executive director. “It’s also a fun opportunity for contractors to win a top-of-the line mower to use in their professional endeavors.”

Raffle tickets are $10 per ticket or six tickets for $50. Tickets can be purchased through the Project EverGreen’s website.

The drawing of the winning ticket will take place Friday, Oct. 23 at 2 p.m. in the Project EverGreen booth (# 463) at the GIE+EXPO in Louisville, Kentucky. The winner need not be present. For complete contest rules, visit www.projectevergreen.org.
