As most of you know, we had one helluva fire up near our home base close to Yosemite. Many of our friends lost everything in their fridge and freezer, some lost their pets, some lost their land and some even lost their homes. Many rely on the meat they had to carry them through the winter and are now faced with some serious challenges.
Bobby Alquist of Alquist Arms has donated 4 very, very nice guns to be raffled off as a fundraiser for the local families adversely affected by the Detwiler fire, now 85% contained. This fire burned over 80,000 acres of our mountain and devastated families. Pictures of the guns are at the bottom of this post.
The raffle is very simple, we are selling tickets for $1.00 each and they all go into a large drum which the winning tickets will be drawn from.
We are happy to announce the best Sheriff in America is going to be drawing the winning tickets on Saturday, September 2nd in Greeley Hill CA. Sheriff Doug Binnewies of Mariposa County.
You do not need to be present to win.
Simply call the number (209) 878-3910 and purchase your tickets. Every single dollar raised here will go to these people, every dollar. We will also be posting precisely the amount taken in, and how it went to help the community. None of this behind the scenes crap folks, we mean this. This hit us hard and hit our community hard and we are very grateful to Bobby and his company for helping. It is people like this which remind us just how fortunate we are to be a part of such a generous and caring community.
If you are a business which would like to sell tickets to raise money for these families, or know of a business which would like to, please contact us at the number listed or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please buy a ticket and help these folks out.
