Wake the World this Saturday at Lake Mead

Supra Boats Dealer Boulder Boats is bringing "Wake the World" to Boulder City, Nevada Saturday, September 24, 2011, 8:30am and 8:30pm to benefit St. Jude’s Ranch for Children .

Wake the World is a goodwill movement ignited by Greg Hodgin of North Carolina and Ryan Caroll of Texas to bring the joy of water sports boating to displaced children who would not otherwise have the opportunity to be out on the lake. Boulder Boats has partnered with a group of their dedicated customers to make this amazing fun-filled day happen on Lake Mead for the children and staff of St. Jude’s Ranch for Children.

Wake the World Lake Mead is the product of Boulder Boats owners Stuart and Kristina Litjens being willing to become the first boat dealer to to fully support the movement. The success of this event is being carried through by the Litjens' extraordinary local customer base who are volunteering their time, Supra boats, equipment and fuel to give these kids a great day on the water.

Wake the World Lake Mead will include boating, wakeboarding, other water sports, lunch and a dinner party. Pro wakeboarders Jimmy Trask and Will Christien will be at the lake to help with the event. Wake the World founders Hodgin and Caroll will also be at the lake to help with the event and reinforce the positive fun of this day on the lake.

The Litjens are very proud to be the first boat dealer to join the Wake the World Foundation by hosting the first ever Wake the World – Lake Mead. They are expecting 100 people on Saturday at the lake. Approximately 50 children from St. Jude’s Ranch, 20 St. Jude’s staff members and more than 30 Boulder Boats staff and customer volunteers, will be on and around the lake for a 12-hour day on the 24th.
