From staff reports

David Wilson, owner of FrontSight Firearms and Training in Pleasantville, teamed up with police academy friend and owner of Stonehouse Armory of Waterford in an effort to help out the nonprofit organization Hunt Of A Lifetime.

The two sponsored a raffle that guaranteed the winner a gun safe and five guns. They sold tickets across Pennsylvania and surrounding states. The winning ticket was drawn Feb. 28, 2017, by a previous Hunt of a Lifetime recipient Casey Gabler of Oil City. The duo was able to raise enough money to give the organization a check for $2,500. Tina Pattison, from Hunt of a Lifetime, stated that the donation will pay for airfare for two recipients and their parents in an upcoming hunt.

Hunt Of A Lifetime’s mission is to fulfill hunting and fishing dreams for children ages 21 and under, who have been diagnosed with life threatening illnesses.
