Gun raffle draws media scrutiny
Placeholder Image
When an Atlanta news station came to Dawsonville last week to find more information on a booster club raffle, parents, coaches and residents were surprised that the fundraising effort would generate that kind of coverage. The story was due to the fact that the booster club for the Dawson County High School soccer team was raffling off a semi-automatic rifle that was donated by the Appalachian Armory. The coverage has only helped the fundraising efforts.
