Dawn Zurcher won a special edition Colt .45 in a raffle sponsored by the Gila County Republican Party, which is chaired by Don Ascoli. Zurcher is a former Payson resident and firefighter/ paramedic with the Payson Fire Department. The gun is a modern version of the famous 1873 Colt revolver and a one-of-a-kind revolver manufactured by Colt Manufacturing especially for the gun raffle. It is the only Colt revolver engraved with “1912 Arizona 100 years 2012” to recognize Arizona’s centennial. The raffle generated funds to support the opening of the Payson Republican Headquarters located at 612 S. Beeline Highway, and to provide contributions to Republican candidates for office.
