WEST FARGO - The media spotlight that has been trained on the West Fargo Hockey Association's gun raffle will likely guarantee it meets its fundraising goal of $100,000, according to Mike Prochnow, an association board member and organizer of the event.


The association held a similar raffle last year, but more than 600 of its 4,000 raffle tickets weren't sold.

Another 4,000 tickets costing $40 apiece were printed for this year's raffle, which offers 200 guns as prizes.
