Join MarineMax Lake Ozark for a Fun-Filled Wakesurf Open
LAKE OZARK, MO (May 18, 2023) – MarineMax Lake Ozark will host their annual Midwest Coast Wakesurf Open on Saturday, July 15, at Ha Ha Tonka State Park.
Proceeds from the Midwest Coast Wakesurf Open will benefit Wake for Warriors, a non-profit organization aimed at connecting injured military veterans by sharing their passion for wake and water sports. This summer, MarineMax is partnering with Wake for Warriors and will host veterans nationwide in July. By doing so, they hope to help heal the emotional and psychological wounds of military veterans and their families.
To raise money for Wake for Warriors, MarineMax will be raffling off a 1977 Chevrolet K5 Blazer, which has been fully restored by MarineMax team member Kenny Abbett who has donated his time and talent to supporting U.S. Veterans. The winner will be announced at the wakesurf open. Raffle tickets for the fundraiser will be $25, to buy tickets, or donate, head online.
