CASS COUNTY—Local Ag departments will get an early Christmas present thanks to an effort coordinated by Queen City Pawn.
Recently the pawn shop held its annual firearm raffle to raise money for the departments. Gina Runnels, with Queen City Pawn, said they sold 1,000 tickets (at $50 each) in the raffle and that 50 lucky winners will walk away with a new rifle or shotgun.
The firearms range in value from $210 for the Escort Home Defense Black to the grand prize, a Henry Golden Boy Deluxe, valued at $1,925.
She said that the raffle will generate $5,000 for departments at Queen City, McLeod, Linden-Kildare, Bloomburg and Hughes Springs ISDs.
