Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - An annual gun raffle fires off Saturday, and they have more firearms than ever.
The West Fargo Hockey Association is giving away 300 guns at its third annual gun raffle at the Holiday Inn.
That's up from 200 at last year's event.
There are very few raffle tickets left, and it's not only people in Fargo-Moorhead who purchased them.
Cal Helgeson/ WFHA President: "We are within 4, 5 states to selling to every state in the nation. We got Hawaii right away, we got Alaska right away, some of the ones I thought would be more difficult. This year we didn't sell a ticket to Antarctica, last year we did. We also sold to three Canadian provinces."
Doors open at 5:30 Saturday night.
The proceeds go toward additional ice sheets for local rinks.
