Do something for the kids, and maybe WIN big!

Enter the Kara's HoPE Raffle to win an heirloom quality, fully engraved, custom 1911 handgun from Ed Brown Products. Valued at approximately $7,000, this piece comes with a custom holster and dress belt set valued at over $1,200. There will be a maximum of 2,000 tickets sold at $40 each.

Kara’s HoPE is a non-profit organization devoted to improving the lives of special needs children and their families. One of our primary focuses is on children with the life limiting brain condition known as Holoprosencephally. HPE is generally a life limiting condition where the brain has not fully developed during pregnancy. These special children do not always fit a particular medical pattern however all have needs that place tremendous stresses on their families.

Wanna help even more? Give the raffle a shout on your Facebook or Forum Page.




Kara’s HoPE is a fully sponsored initiative of Inspired Life Centers, Inc. and is a tax exempt public charity under IRS code 501 (c)3. Donations to Inspired Life Centers/ Kara’s Hope may be considered tax deductible.

I copied this here from the S.W.A.T. Magazine forum so it will give a little more coverage to a worthy cause and give the members of TFL a chance at a fine pistol.

I never win these things, but the drawing is on my mother's birthday, so I'm in. I've always wanted a fancy plinker. We can get together and shoot it if I win.

Thanks, Skadoosh. I've given the site manager a heads-up on the problem.

Skadoosh-
Good man!

FWIW, Firefox 5.0 on Os X.
I bought 5 tickets, without problem.

Skadoosh,

I was able to get the donation process up using both Firefox and Chrome. Hopefully it is fixed for you at this point.

Thanks for the support.

If you want the pen, we'll have to work something out...

Seriously, the studio shot is directly from the Ed Brown website and is used with permission. (Pen not included but Galco Concealable alligator holster and Dress Belt SET are...)

Skadoosh,

Sorry about the Firefox/ firewall issues. But it looks like you're "RB" and I saw the transaction online. I'll pull your ticket tomorrow, log the entry into the database and e-mail you the confirmation.

Thanks for the support and good luck!

Stu

what am I supposed to put for Company?

I don't own one and fail to see how the one I work for could possibly be relevant?

Good luck!

Software "fixed" - no more requirement to enter a "company."

Thanks for bringing it to my attention!

Quick update for those who have already entered and those who are considering entry...

Ed Strange from Wicked Grips has graciously offered to donate a set of his custom grips for our drawing. We haven't yet settled on which pair of grips it will be, but rest assured, they'll be knockout gorgeous!

Thanks all!
