Ill. Little League Branch Raffling off Assault Rifle

That should get them some attention


ATWOOD—The town's little league program has people fired up over a new fundraiser. It's raffling off a rifle to help more than a dozen teams play ball.

Organizers tried the traditional fundraisers in the past including a hog roast and raffling off donated gift cards. But after only generating only $10 last year, they felt they had to try something new.

"It's got a full rail system, comes with a 30 round magazine," said Bryan Butcher, co-owner of Atwood Armory.
