SHREVEPORT, LA – December 9, 2013 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – High Lifter Products and Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar teamed up for the sixth consecutive year to host a benefit mud ride for the Shriners Hospital for Children at High Lifter Off-Road Park in Shreveport on December 7, 2013. Attendees braved freezing temperatures to ride their off-road vehicles in the mud and to help raise more than $14,000 and loads of toys for the children’s hospital. The event is one of the biggest fund-raisers for the Shreveport-area hospital.
Funds for Shriners Hospital for Children were raised through park admission, concessions, pancake breakfast, and a raffle for prizes including a 2014 Polaris Ranger 570, a Warn Winch, Moonshinexxx Light Bar, and a year’s worth of coupons for Applebee’s valued at $7,300.
“This truly is my favorite event we put on each year,” said Scott Smith, owner of High Lifter Products. “It’s a busy time of the year where we can stop, have fun, and put others first. The hospital has changed so many lives for the better, including my son’s, and hosting an event like this is the least we could do. The event’s continued success is direct results of the support from our awesome sponsors, including Polaris, Warn, Moonshinexxx, and Applebee’s. We are eager to continue to see this event grow and can’t wait to what next year brings!”
High Lifter and Applebee’s have already begun planning for the 2014 Shriners Ride scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 6, 2014. Since 1922, the Shriners Hospital and their 22 facilities have been dedicated to providing specialty pediatric care. Thousands of children with orthopedic conditions, burns and spinal cord injuries, have been treated in a family-centered environment at no charge.
