Pulling double duties, Werner Paddles Pro Staff Jeff Herman was acting as a tech rep at the LKS tournament, Saturday June 7. While talking paddle design he was also handing out raffle tickets. The catch was, the only way to get a Werner raffle ticket was to land a redfish during the tournament and release it alive. Out of seventy eight entrants, twenty four anglers brought in and released a live red. Sonny Mills, Jeff’s teammate at Werner, caught and released his reds alive and was lucky to win the raffle drawing.

With a smile and a lot of class, Sonny did what he felt was only right. He came to the stage accepted the $475 paddle and immediately donated it to Costal Bent chapter of Heroes on the Water. It was a great win for a great organization, and generated an immense feeling of pride for everyone at Werner Paddles. It is an honor to have Sonny Mills as part of our family. Thanks to Jeff Herman for thinking up such a great raffle that ended so well.

I can vouch for Sonny:he is a very classy guy. After being married to him for nine years, I can honestly say that he is always going out of his way to donate his time, his money, and anything else he can to help out. He is a wonderful husband and father, and an excellent fisherman!
