Money collected and deposited is $200. The goal is $1000. That's only 50 raffle entries. Anything you can do to help the family, whether it be partaking in the raffle or donating something toward the raffle, is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Money collected is $480, almost 1/2 way toward the goal of $1000.

$20 is the cost of a few good fishing lures but your raffle donation is far greater because it goes to helping out a family robbed of a future with their 20 year old son.

If legitamacy is a concern, i can get numerous people to attest that the raffle and I are 100% on the level.

Please find it in your hearts to partake in this raffle.

Any questions or for links to prize pics, please e-mail me at [email protected].

Thank you.
