Raffle proceeds will support families of injured deputies | Community Spirit
Starting now you can buy raffle tickets to support the families of Deputy Spink and Northway who were both shot last month in the line of duty. Grant County Sheriff’s Office is sponsoring the raffle for an August 14 drawing.
First prize is a Smith and Wesson M&P .40 caliber handgun. Second prize is a vacation in Majahua Palms, Mexico. Third prize is a guided half-day pheasant hunting trip in La Crosse, Washington.
Tickets can be bought for $5 at High Mountain Hunting Supply in Moses Lake, located at 12238 N. Frontage Road and at the Grant County Sheriff’s Office in Ephrata. For those in the Spokane area, you can buy tickets at the Public Safety Building, located at 110 W. Mallon Ave. starting July 16.
Raffle winners do not need to be present at the drawing that will take place at the Grant County Fairgrounds.
(UPDATED - 5:42 p.m.) - The Grant County Sheriff's Office later clarified that the winner of the Smith and Wesson will only earn the firearm if they're eligible to own one.
