Donnie Smith likes to shoot rifles.
And he’s pretty good at it.
The Payson High sophomore is the defending Arizona Junior High Power Rifle Champion.
He competes in several events across the state and country. And the expenses add up.
So the son of Don and Silvia Smith decided to raffle off his 2000 Polaris Sportsman 500 4x4 to assist with those expenses.
“It was kind of tough,” he said. “We used it going hunting, camping and other fun activities. But it will help out with the travels. So we kind of needed to.”
They sold 200 tickets for $20 each. Linda Gist won the raffle, which raised $4,000. It was held on Oct. 12.
