CCSD raffling off a motorcycle

The Clay County Sheriff's Department is currently selling raffle tickets for a Harley-Davison motorcycle to help support the upcoming Indiana Sheriffs' Association programs.

"Tickets are available at the Clay County Justice Center," Clay County Sheriff Mike Heaton recently told The Brazil Times. "The funds generated from the ticket sales will support programs such as the two youth leadership camps, 40 college scholarships and death benefits for the families of officers killed in the line of duty."

Tickets -- which are on sale for $2 each, three for $5, seven for $10 or 15 for $20 -- are available for sale during normal business hours at the Clay County Justice Center.

According to the ISA, this is the sixth year sheriff's departments from around the state can voluntarily sell tickets to give away a 2009 FLHX Harley-Davidson Street Glide motorcycle. The winning ticket will be drawn during the Indiana State Fair on Aug. 23 at the ISF Sheriff's Booth. The winner does not need to be present to win, but their picture and information will be placed on the ISA website.

Heaton said children in the area have benefited from the ISA programs.

"Last spring, Northview graduate Joshua R. Gregg received a $500 scholarship to cover college expenses at Indiana State University." Heaton said. "We have taken around 15 children in the past few years to law camp."

Although the dates haven't been officially scheduled for the 2009 ISA Leadership Camp, Heaton said the organizational committee he is a member of is considering tentative dates for early July.

"Once the agenda is finalized the applications will be available at the department," Heaton said.

The ISA provides the funding for the camp and, according to Heaton, a large portion of the raffle ticket sales and donations from local businesses, civic organizations and community support is used to provide scholarship assistance for families with children who might want to go but are unable to afford the camp registration fees.

"If a kid wants to go to camp, we find a way to get them there," Heaton said.
