Hello, Does anybody know the drawing date of the oldsmobile that the firefighters have been selling tickets for, for over a year? I purchased 15 tickets last year at mcdonalds parking lot and i have emailed arfallenfirefighters.org several times and no response from them. I noticed the car was being driven by a couple firefighters through town prior to the homecoming parade this evening. I know the car was donated by chris quinn.

I think a Jarrett won it, imagine that? I think it was a setup from the beginning, it seems it was all done behind closed doors with hand picked witnesses to the so called drawing.

What they don't tell you is that tickets for the prize are sold statewide, for instance they wait til they sell around 100,000 dollars worth before they give away a 4,000 dollar 4 wheeler and as far as the car giveaway goes haha,The Mcdonalds guy tried for months to sell that car and didn't succeed so he donated to them as a tax write off for more than he was actually trying to sell it for.The firefighters don't really want you to know they are selling tickets statewide, it gives the ticket buyer a sense of hope,they should do it on a local level so our department gets every cent...it's just like the lotto,it's always someone way off seems to win the best prize.

"Imagine That" as it is with any raffle you are only buying a chance, noone forced you to buy a ticket. The raffles that have been done by the firefighters around the state have helped to raise money to build the Fallen FireFighters Memorial. Someone like you would be the type of person to say the firefighters used to much water to put out a house fire. Get a Life. You have no idea what fire fighters do and have to live with everyday from the things they have to do and see. Believe me even though you are complaining the fire fighters are Greatful for your donation.

For your info, I am very pleased that they are able to raise so much money for the memorial. I just don't understand why more isn't done in our local area especially with Honda and Western Auto here,especially since they both claim to sell the most of their particular brand in the state and if thats the case i'm sure they could donate several atv's right? I am saying we need to support our local firefighters first and if a raffle is needed then give the prizes away locally.

The four wheelers that the FireFighters have raffled off were not donated, they had to be able to raise enough money to be able to pay for it.
