Welcome and thank you for your support of the Lisbon Firefighters Inc., our nonprofit organization representing all active members here at the Lisbon Fire Department.
Whether you participated a prior year's raffle or this is brand new to you, we welcome and appreciate your participation. For returning participants, please know that some rules of the drawing process have changed from our first year, due to Wisconsin state regulations. (More information on this can be found below, see the Changes from 2013 Gun Raffle section.)
This page contains a detailed description of the raffle, rules, and updates. This webpage will be updated as needed, and the winning numbers will be posted after each drawing once they begin. Raffle drawings begin on September 12th and be held every MONDAY, WEDNESDAY, and FRIDAY through October 26th.
Why conduct a gun raffle?
Like any volunteer-based department, our success relies on the support of the community, and fundraising is a key to helping fund our mission. After decades of different fundraisers, this gun raffle has - by far - generated more community response, active interest, and financial success than any other fundraiser in Lisbon Fire Department history.
What if I'm not interested in guns?
That's alright! The winner is awarded a Gander Mountain gift card for the value of the winning gun, rather than the firearm itself. For example, if you win the Remington Model 870, you receive a gift card for $499.99, and can use it for ANY Gander Mountain purchase. If you choose, you can spend that entire amount on outdoor wear, camping gear, or any other merchandise at Gander Mountain.
If I get a gift card instead of the gun, do I still pay sales tax?
Gander Mountain has adjusted the gun prices so that the value of your gift card covers all sales taxes. You will be responsible for the required background check and its cost.
What if I want a different gun than the one I win?
No problem. The gift card can simply be used towards the purchase of a more expensive firearm of your choosing or, if you prefer a less expensive model and you'll simply have extra money for something else.
Can I win more than once?
YES, all winning tickets go back in the tumbler - every ticket has a chance to win every drawing! You could win all of the drawings with one ticket.
Changes from 2013 Gun Raffle
-Drawings will be on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays instead of Sundays and Wednesdays.
-We will NO LONGER be using the Wisconsin Pick 3 Lottery as our source of winning numbers. This is due to regulatory changes by the State of Wisconsin. Instead, we will be conducting the drawings at noon on each of the dates listed on the tickets, at Lisbon Fire Department's Station #2, at N54 W26455 Lisbon Road. All are welcome to attend. An actual ticket stub that purchasers fill out with their name and contact information will be drawn. Once drawings begin, the stubs will be kept, stored, and secured in a locked tumbler - it is from this tumbler that these will be drawn. All winning ticket stubs will be placed back into the tumbler meaning every ticket has a chance to win any/all of the 20 drawings! Yes, you might win all of the guns!
The Lisbon Fire Department is once again raising funds through a gun raffle. In 2013, we launched this idea through our first-ever raffle and were met with overwhelmingly positive response that made it a tremendous success. Thanks to participants in the community and even those from a distance who purchased tickets, we officially sold out ALL 1,000 tickets before the drawings even began!
All proceeds from last year's raffle went to support the Lisbon Firefighters Inc., our internal organization dedicated to training, equipping, and preparing firefighters to ensure we are at our best on every call. These proceeds specifically have supported our purchase of some much-needed firefighting and ventilation equipment.This has all been made possible by our firefighters, the local community, participants and interested buyers from any and all distances, and the cooperation of local organizations including Color Ink and Gander Mountain. This raffle has been authorized and licensed by the State of Wisconsin. Each individual raffle ticket displays our state raffle license number.
A total of 1,000 tickets will be sold again – please see “Tickets” below for details on purchasing and drawings. A total of 20 guns will be raffled off; these guns have already been selected. Please see “Guns” below for the detailed list of guns, corresponding draw dates, and assessed values. The values range from $329 -$949.
**NOTE** As with last year, winners are not obligated to take the gun drawn on the corresponding date. Instead, the winner will receive a Gander Mountain gift card for the value of that firearm. This gives the winners flexibility to use winnings towards purchasing other items that may better suit their preferences, such as camping gear, fishing equipment, or outdoor apparel. Also, Gander Mountain is adjusting the prices on the prizes so that the gift card will cover all taxes as well.
Tickets can be purchased for $20 a piece, with no limit on how many can be purchased. You can obtain tickets by contacting any Lisbon firefighter, stopping by our Richmond Station on Lisbon Road during weekday business hours, or calling our station (262-246-6401) for more information. Rules require that all ticket payments and transactions be IN CASH, regardless of how many are purchased. Thank you for understanding. Each ticket has a detachable portion on which we will request your contact information and log it to know what ticket number(s) you have.
*Note: Individuals are still responsible for having tickets in their possession at drawing time. The Lisbon Fire Department is not responsible for lost tickets.The back of each ticket has a complete list of the 20 different guns available, on what date each specific gun will be raffled, and the corresponding value of each gun.
