Alpine residents host raffle for tanker crew's family

Alpine County residents are holding a raffle to raise money for three crewmembers on an air tanker that crashed on takeoff on Sept. 1.

The P2 has been used earlier to fight the Burnside fire in Hope Valley.

Raffle tickets are $5 each, or $20 for five. Prices include overnight hotel stays, dinners, breakfast, gifts, artwork, snowshoes and an entry into the 2009 Death Ride.

The drawing will be held Oct. 4 on the Alpine County Library lawn in Markleeville.
