Team to Participate in 4th Annual Event to Honor Fallen Heroes
Wendell, NC – Avid golfers representing KIOTI Tractor are practicing their golf swing to show their support at the 4th annual Raleigh Police Memorial Foundation golf tournament at the North Ridge Country Club on March 25. A silver-level sponsor, KIOTI Tractor, a division of Daedong-USA, Inc., will send a team of four to the tournament, which provides financial support to honor the lives and memories of the fallen heroes who have made the ultimate sacrifice in the performance of their duty while serving the City of Raleigh.
This is the third consecutive year that KIOTI has participated in this charity event. A KIOTI MECHRON® 2200 Utility Vehicle will be on hand to transport refreshments to the concession carts that are serving the players during the event. The MECHRON® 2200 UTV has 4-wheel drive, a 12” ground clearance and the widest cargo bed in its class. KIOTI will also display the CS2410 Subcompact tractor: a powerful, versatile tractor for homeowners with property sizes ranging from just under an acre up to 5 acres.
“We want to honor our fallen heroes and show our support for the men and women who risk their lives every day for our community” said Peter Dong-Kyun Kim, chief executive officer of Daedong-USA, Inc. KIOTI Tractor Division “Our company and our employees live in the Raleigh area, and this is a small way for us to show our gratitude and honor these fearless individuals who serve and protect us.
Teeing up for KIOTI this year is new Director of Product Support Randall Soutiere, who has spent 28 years in the aviation industry including service in the United States Air Force. Also joining the team is local dealer Gary Mize, owner of The Tractor Place in Knightdale, N.C., which is located just 4.5 miles down the road from the KIOTI North American headquarters.
The Raleigh Police Memorial Foundation was founded in 2009 by active and retired Raleigh police officers that wanted to remember and honor the Raleigh police officers that made the ultimate sacrifice. The Foundation recently received approval from the Raleigh City Council to construct a police memorial in front of the Raleigh Municipal Building that will honor the eight fallen Raleigh police officers.
