The Neligh Rescue squad members are holding a fundraiser in order to update equipment for emergency personnel.
Members are selling raffle tickets for three guns to be drawn during the demo derby at the Antelope County Fair on Saturday, Aug. 1. The guns being raffled are a Weatherby Upland 12 gauge shotgun, Henry Silver Bay lever action rifle .17 HMR caliber and a Savage Axis XP rifle with a Bushnell scope.
"We hope this is a great fundraiser for us that leads to new equipment for the rescue unit and for our local personnel," said Jared Jacob, co-captain of the Neligh Rescue squad. "This is our first raffle in six years, so it's time to try to put some funds together for updates. The community has always been very supportive of our efforts, and we really appreciate their assistance."
Raffle tickets are $10 each and are available from any rescue member listed below or at the Antelope County News or Neligh News and Leader, both located in downtown Neligh.
Neligh Rescue members are co-captains Jared Jacob and Brian Whitesel. Squad members are Kenny Capler, Diane Carpenter, Gayle Carlson, Doug Dennis, Sam Funk, Karen Hart, Phil Hart, Bryan Hohnholt, Dave Jacobsen, Lyle Juracek, Terra Bentley-Kimes, Mike Mortensen, Michaela Potter, Duane Risinger, Steve Simonsen, Dave Schmidt, Brian Schlote, Dennis Schwager, Corrie Starkey, Julie Tschirren, Mike Wright and Joan Wright.
