For the ninth consecutive year, the Northland Ford Dealer group – Ford dealers in Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin – donated a 2017 Ford F-150 Supercrew XLT pick-up to be raffled off by Pheasants Forever. Raffle tickets for the truck were provided to local chapters in portions of each state with all proceeds benefitting habitat conservation efforts in their local communities.
The winner of this year’s Northland Ford Truck Raffle was Sue DeHoogh of Sheldon, IA. DeHoogh purchased her lucky ticket from a fellow employee who was helping sell tickets for the Brookings County Chapter of Pheasants Forever while attending school at South Dakota State University. “I feel very lucky and blessed to be a part of this. I am very thankful to everyone involved,” said DeHoogh. Her husband, Jim, is a member of the O’Brien County Chapter of Pheasants Forever in northern Iowa.
The Northland Ford Truck Raffle has raised thousands of dollars for local habitat efforts in the program’s six-state region. Thank you to Ford Truck dealers throughout the Midwest for your devotion to the conservation of wild things and wild places!
