Jasper Fire Department Raffle a Huge Success
The Jasper Fire Department would like to thank everyone who participated in our very successful raffle this month. We hosted the raffle to help raise funds for the family of one of our own who recently passed away. We wanted to do all that we could to help support and care for them during this difficult and transitional time.
We partnered with Smith Tactical & Defense of Talking Rock, GA for the prize, which was a brand new Smith Tactical & Defense PT Series AR 15 rifle. 500 raffle tickets were made available. To say that we had a great response from the community would be an understatement. We were overwhelmed with how fast the word spread and how fast the tickets were being bought. 200+ tickets were sold before we even made the official announcement about the raffle. It is truly heartwarming to see and feel that our community rallied to support this cause.
The raffle drawing was held on March 19th. We would like to congratulate the winner, Zach McAllister of Talking Rock. Coincidentally, or perhaps not, Zach had visited Smith Tactical and Defense earlier this month and one of their rifles was high on his wish list! Asst. Chief Von Hedrick met Zach at Smith Tactical & Defense to take possession of the prize. Zach’s smile says it all as he displayed his brand new rifle!
As firefighters, we proudly serve and care for our community. We are deeply touched by the community’s reciprocation and your help in supporting this cause.
