The Mia Moo Fund is organizing a new event to raise awareness about cleft lip and palate and help children affected by this condition.
For only $20, donors can win a boat from professional fisherman Jim Dillard and help the Mia Moo Fund in the process.
Mia Robertson’s mother, Duck Dynasty star Missy Robertson, wrote on her Facebook account: “Help a child with cleft lip/palate by buying a raffle ticket and you could win this boat! Lots of other prizes, too.”
The Mia Moo Fund also announced on its official website, miamoo.org:
“The Mia Moo Fund is proud to present the Jim Dillard Boat Giveaway, an amazing opportunity to generate awareness about cleft lip and palate. These children are born with difficulties that are difficult for most to comprehend, but we know that we can still do a lot to achieve what used to be considered impossible. Donors have the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets for a low price with all the proceeds going to help U.S. children in need of assistance. We will be hosting a raffle for the chance to meet Jim Dillard and win his famous bass fishing boat!
The fabulous prize is Jim Dillard’s 2014 Basscat Puma FTD with a Yamaha 250 SHO Outboard, Minn Kota Fortrex 112 Trolling Motor, 12’ Minn Kota Talon, and Hummingbird Electronics. It is a top of the line boat that is sure to please any fisherman, hobbyist or anything in-between!
With your support, we can help change the lives of children by funding vital research that can help those suffering from a cleft lip or cleft palate, and can grant these children with an increased quality of life. With your help we can help these kids gain a whole new perspective, one that is sure to help them develop into extraordinary people. We aim to help these children find confidence in themselves to accomplish their dreams, and to obtain the ability to reach their full potential.
