MTI, the industry leader in manufacturing of High Performance Racing and Pleasure Catamarans, Center Console Vee-Bottoms and Twin Outboard Catamarans; gave the children who are a part of Wishing On A Ride Powerboat Rides an experience they will never forget. At the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout, the kids got a sneak peek at the life of a powerboater as they enjoyed a ride aboard an MTI Catamaran. Read below to find out more about the kids experience and the event that was held for the Make-A-Wish foundation.
By handing off a couple of her usual responsibilities during the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout this year, longtime event volunteer Tiffany Maasen was able to focus more of her time and energy on her favorite part of the event, the heart-warming Wishing On A Ride Powerboat Rides. In doing so, Maasen and a dedicated team of volunteers added an extra day of giving kids and families facing serious illnesses and disabilities a once-in-a-lifetime experience in a go-fast boat.
The kids enjoyed a spin in an MTI catamaran during Sunday’s Wishing On A Ride Powerboat Rides event at Redhead Yacht Club.The once-in-a-lifetime experience was so special to the kids as they spent their day in a go-fast boat.
“There are so many big-hearted people who bring their boats and give their time and fuel to provide unforgettable experiences for the children and their families—it’s just incredible,” Maasen said, adding that Sunday’s event had close to 20 boats and she’s expecting 25 boats on Thursday. “I’m excited to focus my energy strictly on the Make-A-Wish stuff. We work closely with Make-A-Wish of Missouri & Kansas, and we can’t wait to do even more with the organization to take this event to the next level.”
