Pro-staff donates $475 Werner Paddle to Heroes on the Water
Lone Star Kayak Fish Series, Texas:
Pulling double duties, Werner Paddles Pro Staff Jeff Herman was acting as a tech rep at the LKS tournament, Saturday June 7th. While talking paddle design he was also handing out raffle tickets, the catch was the only way to get a “Werner raffle ticket” was to land a redfish during the tournament and release it alive. Out of 78 entrants, 24 anglers brought in and released a live red.
Sonny Mills, Jeff’s teammate at Werner caught and released his reds alive and lucky enough ended up winning the raffle drawing. With a smile and a lot of class Sonny did what he felt was only right. He came to the stage accepted the $475 paddle and immediately donated it to Coastal Bend Chapter of Heroes on the Water.
It was a great win for a great organization and an immense feeling of pride for everyone at Werner Paddles. It is an honor to have Sonny Mills as part of our family. Thanks to Jeff Herman for thinking up such a great raffle that ended so well.
