West Virginia Hospital Fundraises With Gun Raffle

JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

A West Virginia hospital plans to raffle off a set of firearms later this month in an effort to raise funds to construct a new hospital facility.

Preston Memorial Hospital in Kingswood, W.V. advertises a “community BBQ and firearm fundraiser” on its website at a cost of $20 per ticket. All proceeds go to benefit the “PMH Foundation Building for a Healthy Future Capital Campaign,” the ad reads.

The ad features a matched set of Ruger firearms with .357 and .44 Magnum cartridges and stipulates that only those 21 and over may purchase tickets. The fundraiser is slated for June 27.
