Diane Jone, of West Pont, Ind., the winner of the Pink Gator Fundraiser, takes her prize for a ride.
West Side Tractor Sales Co. and Twin City Collision Repair announced the winner of the Pink Gator Fundraiser Oct. 30 at an event in Lafayette, Ind. In May, West Side and Twin City kicked off the Pink Gator Fundraiser to support the YWCA Greater Lafayette Women’s Cancer Program.
Hundreds of participants purchased raffle tickets for a chance to win a pink, custom designed John Deere Gator. The winner was a woman from the Lafayette community. The Pink Gator raised more than $9,500 for the Women’s Cancer Program.
“When the opportunity came up for West Side to partner with Twin City Collision, we were excited to support such an excellent cause,” said Bill Price, the West Side Lafayette store manager. “Day in, day out, the YWCA Women’s Cancer Program makes a difference in women’s lives throughout our community. This is our way of saying thank you and ensures that women in our community continue to receive the healthcare and support they need.”
The YWCA Women’s Cancer Program provides community-based outreach, support groups, education and access to clinical breast exams, mammograms, and other medical services, as well as translation and transportation, to underserved women in Tippecanoe County and 22 other Indiana counties.
“When West Side expanded into Indiana two years ago, we brought the same core values that have allowed for our success in Illinois for 50 years. As an organization, our goal is to not only be a business partner, but also a community partner,” said Lauren Coffaro, West Side marketing manager.
