Updated: Dec 18, 2018
Giveaway Time! In honor of another incredible year with Eastern Rodworks, I’ve decided to raffle off a pair of custom fishing rods. This contest will be unique in that YOU get to pick the rod and ALL money raised will be donated directly to charity.
There will be two separate raffles; one for a RODgeeks Snap Jig Rod ($285 value) and a second for a $500 Gift Card that can be used towards any rod I build. If you win the Snap Jig raffle, you’ll get to pick the blank color, guide finish, and thread colors for your own personalized build. For the $500 gift card, you can use the credit towards a new build or upgrades to a rod in progress. Been thinking about getting something made? Here’s $500 towards the price. Already have something in progress? Use the $500 for the balance owed, to add a decorative wrap to it or those titanium Fuji guides you’ve been dreaming about….whatever you want!
Entry into the raffle will be based on a donation(s) made to your favorite charity. Any recognized 501c3 organization or cause is acceptable; As a special twist, donations to my personal favorite charities will be counted TWICE.
1) America's VetDogs: Helps to train and provide service animals for veterans, the disabled and blind. https://www.vetdogs.org/
2) New York Bully Crew: Not-for-profit dog and puppy rescue organization that specializes in rescuing Pitbulls and special needs dogs. No animal in need of rescue is turned away and they take on a lot of serious need cases. https://www.nybullycrew.org/
3) Hooks For Heroes: Takes American Veterans, Firefighters, Police Officers and First Responders coping with physical and mental injuries received during service on fishing trips. http://hooksforheroes.org/
4) Wounded Warriors Family Support: Helps to provide better quality of life to military personnel and their families wounded, injured or killed in Iraq & Afghanistan, and to provide financial funding to other veteran organizations with similar missions. http://www.wwfs.org/
You can also look on Charity Watch, an independent watchdog that rates charitable organizations on their overall costs and the amount of donations that go directly to the cause https://www.charitywatch.org/home
