Tunica Raffle Tractor 2018!

Thanks for all the support for the 2017 Tunica Raffle Tractor, a Minnieapolis Moline UB.  The tractor, like the previous two tractors, raised $20,000 for St. Judes Childrens Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.

This year's tractor is a Farmall M set up for 4-6-8mph classes.  With a proven 436cid engine combination, the tractor has already gotten on the track-and won!  Weighing less than 3800# bare, it will soon have a set of Aluminum rear wheels and an aluminum front weight bracket.

We are shooting for a $40,000 donation total for St. Judes from the tractor, it is truly the best one yet! 

Now: for tickets!   You have two options:  The link below sends you to paypal, no registration with paypal required to buy that way.   The second and preferred option is a check or money order made out DIRECTLY to St. Judes Childrens Research Hospital.  Either way you will have tickets entered corresponding to the amount you donate.  Tickets are $20 each, 6 for $100, or 15 for $200.    If you send you choose the check/money order option, please mail those checks to:  The HOOK, PO Box 2373, Elizabethtown, KY 42702   We will process the ticket orders and send your checks on to St. Jude.  The tractor will once again be raffled off in December at the Southern Nationals in Tunica, Mississippi where close to $200k has been raised for St. Judes over the past few years.

Thank you to everyone who has donated and supported these projects;  We are honored that you have chosen to help us in our quest to end childhood cancer through St. Judes!

Welcome!

Welcome to the blog site for the Tunica Raffle Tractor.  This project is an extension of the efforts of the Midwest Hellion Tractor Pullers and the fundraising they have done on behalf of St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.  For the past two years we have raffled off a pulling tractor.  Each tractor has generated $20,000 on behalf of the children of St. Judes.  This year our project tractor is a Minneapolis-Moline UB.  We have been working in cooperation with students in the Ag Mechanics program from the Central Hardin High School FFA chapter in Cecilia, Kentucky in the preparations for this tractor.  The tractor will debut in July and will tour around the Midwest for pullers and pulling fans to be able to purchase tickets to win the tractor.    Our goal is to bring in $30,000 alone from the tractor raffle proceeds and present those funds to St. Jude's on December 2nd, 2017 during the Southern Nationals in Tunica, Mississippi.  

We are actively pursuing a non-profit status for the efforts as the success of the program demands transparency and the ability to offer greater opportunity for giving and the benefits of donations to this worthy cause.  The success of this project is directly related to the selfless work of many individuals and simply "doing it for the kids."  We encourage you to join us in our efforts for St. Jude's and make 2017 our best year yet!
