Special to The Hays Daily News

Voting for Lang Diesel Inc.'s $1,000 grant giveaway wraps up Thursday, just in time for the holidays. Kansas and surrounding area community members are urged to give the gift of a vote to their favorite local cause or organization this week on the LDI Facebook page to support the impact being made in their own communities. Each Facebook user is limited to one vote per day.

Since LDI began accepting entries last month, more than 17 organizations and special community projects across Kansas have been nominated for the grant. For the full list of entries, visit bit.ly/1vNLkXz.

The "Win $1,000 For Your Favorite Charity" giveaway is being presented in celebration of LDI's commitment to serving Kansas through its full-service dealerships, product support and the "doing what it takes" attitude to provide customers with the best quality products, parts and service.

"Charities are such an integral part of every community," said Shelly Macumber, marketing director at LDI. "LDI is thrilled to help support nonprofit organizations with their invaluable service to communities."

For more information on the LDI "Win $1,000 For Your Favorite Charity" contest, stop at one of the 12 dealerships located throughout Kansas or visit www.langdieselinc.com.

The selected winner will be presented with a $1,000 check signed from LDI in the weeks following the contest's completion, and winner information will be posted to the LDI Facebook page no later than Jan. 5.

Founded in 1988, Lang Diesel Inc. started in Hays when Brian Lang, president, opened a repair shop out of his toolbox.

Since then, LDI has grown to a full-service equipment dealership with extensive sales and product support. Throughout its history, LDI has represented numerous AGCO brands, including AGCO Tractors, Massey Ferguson, Gleaner, Sunflower, Hesston and others. LDI will continue to offer these brands in addition to adding a full-line of Challenger ag equipment as well as RoGator and TerraGator application equipment. LDI is dedicated to doing what it takes to provide customers with the best quality products, parts and service.
