SPOKANE-- The Grant County Sheriffs Office will sponsor a raffle for two Spokane County deputies shot in the line of duty.
The raffle for Deputies Northway and Spink began Thursday.
The first prize is a Smith and Wesson M&P .40 caliber handgun. The second prize is a week-long vacation to Majahua Palms, Mexico. Third prize is a guided half-day Pheasant Hunting Trip in La Crosse, Washington. Several other prizes are also available.
All the proceeds will go to the wounded deputies families.
Tickets can be purchased starting Monday at the sheriffs office front desk at the public safety building. Its located at 1100 West Mallon Ave. in Spokane.
Business hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Raffle winners do not have to be present at the time of the drawing, which will be on Tuesday, August 14, 2012.
The Grant County Sheriff's Office says it will ensure the winner of the gun is eligible to own a firearm. If the person is not, additional drawings will be made until an acceptable winner is found. That person will have to go through standard purchasing procedures before receiving the prize.
Anybody winning the second prize better hope to win the first prize as well.
things like our “Gun Club” in a Connecticut HS in the 50’s and 60’s.
Sales of raffle tickets go like hotcakes.
Took the words right out of my head...LOL
None killed from any cause in 75 years.
I believe I would forget the Mexico trip.
Is the Mexico vacation a one-way trip?
Not even a car accident? That’s the number one cause of death/disability for cops now days.
Yep, not even a death/disability car accident in the line of duty.
A remarkable record that I hope is not broken for many years to come.
Sounds like a Mayberry RFD kinda town. Maybe they only need one barney fife with a gun holding loaded with only one bullet.
