Over $15,000 and a Trailer Load of Toys Raised at the 2018 High Lifter Shriners Ride
Each year in December the team at High Lifter Products get their local UTV enthusiasts together to ride for a good cause, the 11th annual Shriners Ride took place December 1st at the newly opened High Lifter Proving Grounds, powered by Polaris ATV park in Shreveport, Louisiana. The event brought riders together to raise money and toys for the Shriners Children’s Hospital of Shreveport. This year’s event was another success as the High Lifter team was able to fill a trailer full of toys and raised $15,935.
Heavy rains the evening before followed by a sunshiny day made riding conditions perfect at the High Lifter Proving Grounds, powered by Polaris, mud enthusiasts had no problem finding deep, mud bogging holes to drive through. The 570 acre park boasts over 25 miles of trails that feature diverse terrain and plenty of mud; riders not only enjoyed a gathering for a good cause but had fun making muddy memories with family and friends.
Aside from riding, High Lifter kept the crowd entertained with activities as well as a visit from Santa. Mr. Claus joined the fun and posed for photos with kids and adults throughout the day. We all know a good ride can build a good appetite, hungry riders enjoyed delicious meals for both breakfast and lunch provided by Applebee’s Grill & Bar.
Before the day was over, High Lifter raffled off many prizes at the event with the grand prize being was a 2019 Polaris Ranger 150 EFI donated by Polaris. It was no surprise that High Lifter outfitted the Ranger 150 with a 2” lift kit for mud riding. Keithville, Louisiana resident Danny Buckingham was announced as the winner and took home the prize.
In the past 11 years, High Lifter has raised over $100,000 through the Shriners Ride event. The funds raised at the event contributes to Shriners Children’s Hospital in Shreveport to provide care to children with neuromusculoskeletal conditions, burn injuries and other special healthcare needs.
