I am a FNRA committee member at Lake Havasu AZ. We raise money for shooting sports. 1/2 of the money goes to the NRA and 1/2 stays in th state. The money is distributed in the form of grants for ranges, youth shooting programs, Women on Target, etc. We hold a yearly banquet, auction and raffles to raise the money. We start the year with a ridiculous $500 in our checking account. Raffle items we buy locally have to be paid for and the banquet room requires a $500 deposit. Some items we get donated and most are sold to us at cost. Items we buy through the NRA we dont have to pay for immediately. We have to raise money fast and we do this with raffles. I just picked up a small electronic pistol safe out of my pocket to raffle off at an upcoming local gun show. 100 tickets @ $5 or 3/$10. we will also be raffling off a S&W Bodyguard 380, 300 tickets @ $5 or 3/$10. I am not soliciting ticket purchases on the forum. I am looking for raffle item suggestions. What would you like to see on a raffle? If an item is $500 or under, we go with the $5 tickets $1000 we go with $10 or 3/$20. We do have a special Henry rifle on the way from the NRA that will go for $20 per ticket. Suggestions have been Ruger SR9c, Sig P238, Highpoint carbine, AR and a gun safe.
