Buy A Raffle Ticket for a Chance to Win up to 50 Long Rifles and Shotguns
SAN ANGELO, TX — The San Angelo Home Builder's Association and Operation Finally Home are offering raffle tickets to win any of 50 guns in 50 minutes. The raffle will happen at the HBA Christmas pre-party on Dec. 8 from 5 p.m. - 6 p.m.
The raffle is to benefit an organization called Operation Finally Home. That means 100 percent of the money paid for raffle tickets go towards the cost of completing building a custom home for a well vetted and deserving veteran of any U.S. Military branch and their family who will be located in San Angelo.
The Campbell family was the last San Angelo recipient of a gorgeous four bedroom, two bathroom home in the Bluffs. They moved into the home June of 2016.
Kristen Oliver, of the San Angelo Home Builders Association, said, "The hardest part is finding a recipient (for the new home). " Operation Finally Home has an extensive process to ensure the gift goes to a deserving winner who can also afford the bills that come with a beautiful custom home. A change voted in starting this year for home winner's is that even surviving spouses of award winners do not have to pay property taxes for the lifetime of their families' ownership of the home.
All of us have been touched by those who serve our country and this is a program that gives the building community an opportunity to give back to families that have given the sacrifice of a large portion of their life defending our country. Any dollars that are raised through efforts in the Concho Valley and surrounding areas will be awarded directly to the building of a home in the same community instead of being funneled towards a project outside of the people who donated or administration costs.
Plus how many chances do you get to purchase up to 50 guns for $50? If you win a gun, your raffle ticket is placed back into the drawing for the subsequent drawings. The chances are slim, by hypothetically, one ticket can win all 50 guns in the raffle.
You can purchase raffle tickets online here. But hurry, there will only be 1,000 tickets sold. You can also see the list of guns that will be raffled off here.
