High school fundraiser: 52 guns in 52 minutes

High school fundraiser: 52 guns in 52 minutes
NAMPA, Idaho- While wrestlers go head to head at the Idaho Center this weekend the Columbia High School wrestling team raffle is all about the arms.

For $52.00 you get the chance to win a gun worth up to $2,300. It's a big money maker for the team, but others are concerned about the message it might send.

Raffle organizer, Tyrel Harris, says it's something they thought a lot about and they believe it's appropriate to still have the raffle.

Winners receive a gift card for Sportsman's Warehouse where a background check will be done. Harris says about 850 tickets were sold by the time of the raffle Saturday afternoon.

Tonight on KBOI 2News at 10 we'll talk with parents about the raffle.
