4-H pig raffle for Phillip Crask scholarship

The Straight Arrow Livestock Club will be raffling off two halves of a pig at the 2006 Jefferson County Fair.
   The proceeds of the raffle will be donated in memory of Phillip Crask, to be used as scholarships for youths with diabetes in the tri-county area to attend a special summer camp.
   Phillip was a member of the Straight Arrow Livestock Club and raised pigs as his 4-H projects. He suffered from severe diabetes and passed away in May 2006 from unknown natural causes.
   The members of the Straight Arrow Livestock Club, led by Traci Sauls and his mother Phyllys Ruhl, are conducting the raffle to raise funds to donate to the scholarship account that has been established in Phillip's name.
   The raffle pig has been donated by Phyllys Ruhl and her father and the kill, cut and wrap fees have been donated by Cinder Butte Meats.
   The Straight Arrow Livestock Club will be selling raffle tickets at the 2006 Jefferson County Fair with the drawing to be held at the conclusion of the Livestock Auction on Saturday, July 29.
   You do not need to be present to win but will be required to put a valid phone number on the ticket so you can be reached Saturday evening or Sunday morning regarding how you would like to have the meat cut and packaged.
   There will be two winners drawn, each receiving one half of the pig which means you have two chances at winning. Tickets are $2 each or three tickets for $5.
