One successful raffle fundraiser equals a hand up for area veterans.
The Palmerton Rod and Gun Club gave a check this week in the amount of $5,231 to the Valor Clinic Foundation of Jonas.
The club sold a 31-day gun raffle fundraiser in January, with all of the proceeds from the ticket raffle being donated to the Valor Clinic.
The Valor Clinic Foundation is a nonprofit organization that provides help throughout the area for veterans and families in need.
The organization, founded in 2012, has approximately 50 volunteers.
