KENNESAW, Ga. – HD Marine, in conjunction with Yamaha, Skeeter, Wendy’s and Coca-Cola, raised over $70,000 for the Children’s Healthcare Network of Atlanta at a fishing tournament fundraiser in Gainesville, Ga. recently, according to a press release from Yamaha.

“This was an excellent tournament that had interactive entertainment for the kids and family,” said Lee Dodgen of HD Marine. “Wendy’s had their “Wendy’s on Wheels” mobile providing food to the public in return for donations.”

Both Yamaha Outboards and Skeeter Boats said they were well represented at the event. The top prize was a Skeeter TZX190 rigged with an F150 four-stroke outboard.

“It’s hats off to the HD Marine staff and Lee and Ladonna Dodgen for all of their leadership in once again a successful promotion and fundraiser,” said David Simmons, Yamaha’s freshwater promotions coordinator.
