Robert Clark and Gina Van Wart had help with friends last Saturday at Bass Pro Shop in Pearland selling gun raffle tickets for the Manvel-Iowa Colony Lions Club Annual 130 Gun Raffle Fundraiser. The “Hunter’s Night Out” event will be held at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 10 at the Bass Pro Shop on 288 & Beltway 8. Over 1,000 people from the community showed up for the fun evening last year, hoping to win and also giving back to the community. Proceeds from the 501C3 charitable organization go to local worthy causes in the area and also to the club’s local project to build Little League fields on 27 acres the club had purchased. Tickets are $30, which includes raffle, admission and a meal or 4 for $100. Winners need not be present to win and may choose alternate Bass Pro Shop merchandise in lieu of gun. Tickets may be purchased at Bass Pro Shop, McLelland Insurance, Matrix Manufacturing and Manvel Mattress. The gun list is available at www.manvellionsclub.org.
