Wrestlers Raffle 52 Guns In 52 Minutes

Wrestlers vied for top honors at the Idaho Center Saturday. But in the entry a unique fundraiser was raising some eyebrows. The Columbia High School wrestling team was raffling off "52 guns in 52 minutes". At 52 bucks a ticket, this fundraiser has been a big money maker for the wrestling team. And it's only their first year doing the raffle. A ticket bought you 52 tries to get a gift certificate for a gun. The guns were valued up to 23 hundred dollars.
