Fish Fry Raffle Prizes - Our Generous Sponsors

The Raffle Just Gets Better...

 Raffle TicketThe VVFD Fish Fry raffle is back and better than ever. As before, tickets are only $1 apiece or six for $5. Each ticket provides TWO chances to win.
 First, each ticket goes into one of the separate drawings for the major prize you want most. Then, all non-winning tickets from that drawing go into the raffle bin for a chance at one of the great second-chance prizes. 
Donations of prizes continue to come in and we are working on publishing the full list. In the meantime, we have listed information below about some of the prizes below and their donors.
Please go out of your way to thank these sponsors for their generous donations to VVFD and to do business with them and to recommend them whenever possible.

PRIZE: Silky (professional) 21' Pole Saw

Pole Saw Photos 
A true professional heavy duty aluminum pole saw - the pole saw of choice by professionals. The Hayauchi pole saw has rigid aluminum poles that quickly extend to desired cutting length. The base pole has a comfortable rubber grip. The extension lock with spring loaded buttons at the end of each length. The nearly 16-inch blade not only sports the largest teeth available in a razor tooth design, but has a sharpened base and tip for scoring the branch, to avoid ripping damage to the branch collar.  
Generously donated by Andy and Susan Fogarasi, Volente residents and owners of Hill Country Outdoor Power. Andy told us, " Excellent for tree trimming much higher in the tree than you can get with a power pole-saw while keeping your feet on the ground.  That way, the VVFD does not have to be called to pick up the pieces when you fall out of a tree with a power saw in your hand!
