Fundraising for renovations
A total of 600 tickets were sold, making $8,000 profit
Five winners of the gun raffle were chosen Monday afternoon at the Boys and Girls Clubs of Washington County.
A total of 600 tickets were sold at $25 per ticket, said Becca Johnson, executive director.
With $3,000 in prizes given away, the club netted $8,000 profit for its gymnasium campaign.
Angie Scott, program director and site coordinator, read off each winner as it was picked:
¯ Ron King won the Browning X Bolt Pro S.S. 6.5 CM plus ammo.
¯ John Halliday won the Ruger AR 450 Bushmaster and ammo.
¯ Rachel Kellar won the Stevens 555 o/u 28 ga. Laser engraved plus ammo.
¯ Patricia Byrd won the Browning BPS 20 gauge plus ammo.
¯ Cole Schafer won the Glock model 30 .45 caliber A.C.P. plus ammo.
After authenticating their wins, guns can be picked up at Jim’s Gun Shop in Beverly.
Johnson said the organization will do another raffle in May.
“We’ll be selling tickets a couple of weeks before the golf outing May 15 at Oxbow (Golf Course),” Johnson said. “Perhaps we’ll do the drawing at the golf outing if we sell out.”
The organization is raising money for the endowment and materials such as bleachers and “amenities,” she said, noting they are projected to hit the $1.2 million by the end of the summer.
