Save The TaTas
In their attempts to go outside the normal ring of sponsorships, Dean and Kevin started working on an idea tobuild a sponsorship platform to help raise awareness for breast cancer research. The “Save The TaTas” team is a for profit organization that sells numerous products such a tees, decals, sweatshirts and other products. Upwards of 50% of each sale goes to funding research for the elimination of breast cancer. Selling to both men and women, they have a wide assortment of things that are geared to draw a snicker while not losing site of the seriousness of a dreadful killer.
The “Save The TaTas Foundation” is a non profit organization that has given hundreds of thousands of dollars to fund research projects to eliminate cancer. Both these organizations are eager to be working with Dean and Kevin in drawing exposure not yet explored by them. The fishing community has already greeted the “TaTas”team and made numerous donations to help get two Ranger Boats out on the National Guard FLW Walleye tour this season.
Voyagaire Houseboats out of Crane Lake, MN, Walleye Central, Frankies Marine have all donated to this worthy effort. Jr’s Tackle, Vados Bait, Dean’s Tackle Box have supplied products and services to help in the effort. Non-endemic sponsors such as MeyeWorld footwear, and Twin City Lawmen a private security firm out of St. Paul, MN have donated dollars to help. ” We are planning on multiple visits to retailers across the tourney trail this year to support them in their support of “Save the TaTas”, says Dean. Kevin and I are committed to this and hoping for a long term relationship and outcome that both of us can be proud of.”
“We are working with “Save the TaTas” in the development of a web page that will be the blog site for the TaTas fishing team,” reports Kevin. There will be a location on the site to be able to donate directly to the “Save The TaTas” Foundation. As well as areas on the site to purchase products for the whole family.”
Look for the Rangers wrapped in the big pink ribbon in waters near you!
