Open Arms Always continues rifle raffle

Open Arms Always, a veterans support group, held a rifle raffle to raise money to help a local veteran put a new roof on his house. On Thursday, Oct. 1 at the Brown County Fair, the winning ticket was drawn by an employee of the News Democrat. The winner of the rifle was Senator Joe Uecker.

On Oct. 10, Sen. Uecker attended the Open Arms Always meeting at the Mt. Orab La Rosa’s to pick up his prize. He held it, admired it, and donated it back so that the organization could hold another raffle.

“I feel that putting a roof on that house for this veteran is more important than me owning the rifle. Of course, when you sell tickets again, let me know,” Uecker said.

Open Arms Always will sell raffle tickets again, thanks to Sen. Uecker’s generous gesture. The drawing will held be at their Veterans Appreciation Dinner in April of 2016. Tickets will cost $1 for one ticket and six tickets for $5. Information about where to buy tickets will be forthcoming.

State Senator Joe Uecker was the winner of the Open Arms Always rifle raffle, but graciously donated his prize back to the organization in order for them to hold another raffle.
