Polaris Industries Inc. Donates Ranger 570 OHV To Spare Key Groove Gala

Saint Paul, MN (February 10, 2017) – Polaris Industries Inc. donated a Ranger 570 OHV vehicle to Spare Key for its 2017 Spare Key Groove Gala.


Spare Key provides housing grants to families with critically ill and seriously injured children in the hospital.  Founded in 1997 the organization celebrates its 20th Anniversary this year.  Currently serving families in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin, Spare Key has provided grants to nearly 3,200 families totaling almost $3.2 million.


With its mission motto, “No matter the illness.  No matter the injury.  No matter the income.  Spare Key helps families bounce and not break.” The organization has received support from Polaris in many forms, including volunteer support.  During the 2016 Ryder Cup, more than 40 Polaris employees donated their time to help Spare Key raise over $65,000 to support its program mission.


“Polaris has long shown its strong commitment to the community,” said Mary Peszek, Spare Key Director of Development and Strategic Partnerships. “As we celebrate our 20th Anniversary at the 2017 Spare Key Groove Gala, Polaris’ gift of the Ranger 570 is simply amazing, and another example of the generosity they provide to many in the community.”


Polaris is dedicated to the long-term investment in the communities where its employees live, work and play.
