Each year, Trustworthy raffles off a brand new Willie Fuzion River Boat for Soldotna Youth Sports & Music Programs. This event has been taking place for nearly 10 years and has raised more than $100,000 for the Soldotna Community Youth Sports, supporting programs at organizations including:
Soldotna Little League
Sohi School Sports Programs
Cook Inlet Academy
Kenai Peninsula Orchestra
Jim Bittle of Willie Boats builds these for us each year just for the cost of materials so we can make a little money for youth sports here in our community. We have people from all over the world come through the store and buy tickets and the raffle sells out really early each year.
It helps a lot of families keep their kids in sports and youth activities and that’s what the boat raffle is all about. We grew up here played sports with a lot of kids who now have kids of their own and this town is like a big family we stand together and support each other and this is a way for us to give back a little bit and we like doing it.
