The Brazoria Lions Club’s traditional, decade plus old annual gun raffle drawing (99 long guns and a new Polaris 4-Wheeler ATV) takes place on Thursday, December 8 with doors opening at 6 p.m. at the Brazoria Heritage Foundation Lloyd Thomas Gym, 205 North Nevada St., Downtown Brazoria.
The raffle tickets (only 3,500 tickets will be sold) are for chances on 99 long guns (shot guns and rifles) and a Polaris four wheeler. Though winners need not be present to win, ticket holders are entitled to a barbeque sandwich, chips and a drink (catered by Kenjo’s) at the event for no additional charge.
The meal and social hour is from 6 p.m. – 7 p.m. immediately followed by the drawing. There will also be a silent and a live Auction (with Floyd Scott as auctioneer) for a very limited number of items and additional “Card” drawings at the event.
The 100 prizes of the gun raffle are listed on the raffle ticket and all prizes MUST be claimed within 30 days of the drawing. Winners will have choices of calibers, and gauges on model drawn on hand – first come, first choice. All gun winners must pass a NCIS background check.
This is the major fundraising effort for the Brazoria Lions Club. Proceeds benefit Brazoria Lions Club Projects dispensing monies to West of the Brazos community such as the Brazoria Heritage Foundation, The Brazoria Community Library, the needy elderly, the Little League, Boy Scouts, sending handicapped children to the Lions camp in Kerrville plus many more initiatives as necessary.
