Felling Trailers Auction Benefits Special Olympics Minnesota

Sauk Centre, MN, Felling Trailers Inc. conducted its fifth-annual online auction of an FT-3 drop-deck utility trailer to benefit a non-profit organization. This year, the winning bid of almost $3,000 was donated to two Special Olympics Minnesota (SOMN) teams, Golden Eagles and Young Athletes.

The 2017 FT-3 “Trailer for a Cause” trailer was painted in Felling’s Viper Red and dawned a custom decal featuring the Special Olympics logo. Felling Trailers wanted to bring awareness of Special Olympics and help provide funding for the individuals who take part in and benefit from the events and services provided locally. The online auction ran for 12 days, from September 24 thru October 5.

“It was truly a pleasure to meet those who will directly benefit from the dollars raised through our Trailer for a Cause Auction,” said Brenda Jennissen, CEO of Felling Trailers, at the Dec. 27 presentation of donations.

The Golden Eagles team has close to 80 participants from the Sauk Centre and Melrose ,MN, areas, ranging from 8 to 79 years old. The athletes train and participate in various sports competitions throughout most of the year. The Young Athletes team, currently with 28 participants from Sauk Centre, ages 2 to 7 years old, is a stepping-stone program that introduces children with and without intellectual disabilities to the world of sports. Along with motor skills, the children build social and emotional skills such as sharing, taking turns and following directions.
