Western Products is donating a military-themed Wide-Out snowplow in support of the American Veterans Traveling Tribute (AVTT).

AVTT is a veteran-owned business that specializes in supporting fallen service members by helping them travel to war memorials and providing scholarships to their family members. The raffle for the snowplow will be held June 26 at the 2015 Snow and Ice Management Association (SIMA) Snow and Ice Symposium in Schaumburg, Ill. All raffle proceeds will go directly to veterans and their families.

“Supporting an organization such as the AVTT is an honor for Western Products,” said Patrick Dietz, Western Products vice president of marketing. “The raffle is an excellent opportunity for us to continue to support our veterans and their families. We look forward to the success stories and assistance this donation will help create.”

Developed in coordination with Rich Arlington & Associates, the Wide-Out snowplow’s design commemorates the five branches of the U.S. military and their veterans. Other companies also took part in the snowplow design—PGG Industrial Coatings donated the paint and ICAFe donated the custom paint job.

“Seeing projects like this come together is truly inspiring,” said Lieutenant Colonel Don Allen, U.S. Army (Ret.), member of AVTT. “Supporting our veterans is an important cause. These donations will give them and their families the opportunity to pay respect to fallen service members and help pave a bright educational path for their children.”

Raffle tickets are $5 or $20 for a set of five. They can be purchased by calling 866-454-0948 Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tickets can also be purchased on the trade show floor.
