West Fargo Hockey Association Raffling 300 Guns

Posted: Updated:

A raffle that caught attention all around the world last year, is at it again in 2014. Last year 200 guns were given away to help raise money for the West Fargo Hockey Association and this year they are bringing out the big guns, literally.

For the third year of the raffle they are adding 100 more guns to give away.  Three-hundred guns and a 2014 Polaris 570 Ranger will be raffled off to help raise money for their program.

The presale for tickets ends January 13th, then tickets will be offered to the public. Cal Helgeson the West Fargo Association President says Tuesday the 14th they will announce where they will be selling the rest of the 6,000 tickets available. Again this year the tickets are $40 each.

Another new change happens during this year's banquet on April 19, where there will be a meal provided and a $10 dollar charge.

Helgeson says the presale tickets have already been sold in 18 different states. He also adds you don't have to support guns to buy a ticket. Winners would get the prize value of the gun for in store credit at Scheels that could be used on a couch, new skis or fishing gear.

Last year, the association raised about $80,000 dollars and that money goes to help the 400 young hockey players and their families as well as providing two rinks.

Many in the community are already anxious for the event. With more guns available, they hope to have a higher chance of winning.

The event is happening on April 19 at the Fargo Holiday Inn. The meal will be served from 5:30-7:00 p.m. For more information on the rules of the raffle, and to get a full list of all 300 guns, click on the link to the right of this story.
