SPOKANE-- The Grant County Sheriff’s Office will sponsor a raffle for two Spokane County deputies shot in the line of duty.
The raffle for Deputies Northway and Spink began Thursday.
The first prize is a Smith and Wesson M&P .40 caliber handgun. The second prize is a week-long vacation to Majahua Palms, Mexico. Third prize is a guided half-day Pheasant Hunting Trip in La Crosse, Washington. Several other prizes are also available.
All the proceeds will go to the wounded deputies’ families.
Tickets can be purchased starting Monday at the sheriff’s office front desk at the public safety building. It’s located at 1100 West Mallon Ave. in Spokane.
Business hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Raffle winners do not have to be present at the time of the drawing, which will be on Tuesday, August 14, 2012.
The Grant County Sheriff's Office says it will ensure the winner of the gun is eligible to own a firearm. If the person is not, additional drawings will be made until an acceptable winner is found. That person will have to go through standard purchasing procedures before receiving the prize.
