Arlington/Fairfax IWLA Sills Air Range Raffle

Every year the Arlington/Fairfax IWLA (a VSSA affiliated club) Sills Air Range does 2-3 raffles to help secure the air range’s long term financial stability. Using donated items — mostly from the Midway Foundation — the club raises funds via raffles and then puts the proceeds into their Midway account. The Midway Foundation then partially matches what they put in — and as the account accumulates the club can use the money for air range needs. All of this helps the club keep the annual consumables fee lower.  This club has been home to some great youth shooters, some of which have gone on to shoot in college, and one who won Olympic Gold in 2016.

The next raffle is one of the best yet! The 1st Prize is a Henry 30/30 (from Midway) and the 2nd Prize is a Ruger Mark III (generously donated by the club's very own Mark Budgeon). For every ten tickets sold, the club will hold a drawing for a Browning knife/flashlight combo. So there are many chances to win!

You can support the air range and these young shooters by purchasing raffle tickets. Tickets are $20 each and can be purchased online at the air range website — afc-iwla-sillsairrange.org/ — and they will also be selling tickets in person for those who know someone who is a member of the club or live close to the range and would prefer to purchase them in person.

The drawing will be drawn after the 200th ticket is sold!
