KIOTI Tractor a Division of Daedong-USA, Inc., and Authorized KIOTI Tractor Dealer, The Tractor Place, recently sponsored and participated in The Heroes 4-Man Shootout golf tournament at Wil-Mar Golf Club. The tournament benefitted The Wounded Warrior Project, a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide services and support to wounded service members and their families. Both companies not only sponsored the event, but also donated promotional items to be given to all participants. The Tractor Place, located in Knightdale, NC, provided two of KIOTI Tractor’s newest products for display, the MECHRON 2200 UTV and the CS2410 subcompact tractor.
“Participating in an event like this gives us a unique opportunity to connect with members of our local community while supporting a noble cause,” states Gary Mize, owner of The Tractor Place.
Representing KIOTI Tractor were Peter Dong-Kyun Kim, Chief Executive Officer of Daedong-USA, Inc., Peter Kim and Kerry Logue, Purchasing Coordinator, and Bobby Jeun, Senior Manager and Engineering Advisor for KIOTI Tractor Division in Wendell.
“Supporting veterans is something we feel very strongly about,” states Peter Dong-Kyun Kim. “This event gives us the opportunity to honor those who risked their lives to defend our country, especially those who were injured in the process.”
At 1:00 pm, the 4-man team competition was quickly underway. Both lunch and dinner were served and an awards ceremony held awarding prizes for the longest drive, closest to the pin shot and the Top 6 teams.
The Wounded Warrior Project was founded shortly after September 11, 2001 to help facilitate the increasing need for comfort and support by injured service men and women. The programs funded for those in need are diverse and strategically planned to benefit the physical, emotional and economical challenges that injured service members face.
