MENTOR, Ohio — Landscape contractors can take a chance on winning an Exmark Lazer Z X-Series — worth more than $14,000 — and help maintain healthier, safer recreational and athletic green spaces when they purchase a ticket for the Project EverGreen Mower Giveaway Raffle.

The raffle is helping Project EverGreen increase funding levels and further expand its “Healthy Turf. Healthy Kids." Initiative. The goal is to revitalize recreational and athletic green spaces across the country.

Over the last year “Healthy Turf. Healthy Kids.” projects have already been completed Atlanta; Cleveland; Milwaukee; North Chicago, Ill.; Belle Plaine, Minn.; Greensboro and Durham, N.C.; and San Antonio, Ft. Worth and Round Rock, Texas.

Additional projects are planned this year for Red Bank, N.J.; Detroit; and Portland, Orew. View the latest project summaries and photos and see the difference green spaces make in a community.

Professionals who purchase a mower giveaway raffle ticket will be eligible to win the Exmark Lazer Z X-Series zero-turn riding mower with equipment including:

  • Suspended operator platform, with 3.6-inches of travel suspending the operator in vertical and fore/aft directions, and Exmark’s patented Iso-Mount system, which provides an additional 3/4-inch lateral and 1/2-inch of vertical bump isolation
  • 60-inch UltraCut Series 6 cutting deck
  • Kawasaki FX801V twin-cylinder engine

“Project EverGreen is thrilled to partner with Exmark on this opportunity to raise awareness of programs — particularly “Healthy Turf. Healthy Kids.” — that personify the benefits of green spaces,” saus Cindy Code, Project EverGreen executive director. “It’s also a fun opportunity for contractors to win a top-of-the line mower to use in their professional endeavors.”

Raffle tickets are $10 per ticket or 6 tickets for $50. Tickets can be purchased through the Project EverGreen’s website at

The winning ticket will be drawn on Friday, October 21, 2016 at 3 p.m. in the Project EverGreen booth (# 10154) at the GIE + EXPO in Louisville, Ky. The winner need not be present.
