Firearm Raffle for Navy Veteran and Retired NPC Sheriff Sergeant Pat Santos


LEWISTON, ID – A longtime Nez Perce County Sheriff’s deputy who recently retired has been diagnosed with end-stage kidney disease. To raise funds for Patrick Santos and his family, Back the Blue Lewiston & Clarkston, Inc. is holding a firearm raffle.

“Over the last week, Pat has found himself in the care of hospital staff when he was hospitalized with end stage kidney disease. Pat has been in the care of the Kootenai Health staff while he begins the process of dialysis. He is expected to be released from the hospital any day and will begin recovery. His new life will entail dialysis treatments three days a week for the rest of his life,” the group says.

“There will be costs associated with travel of medical bills incurred by the family, changes to Pat’s house to assist in his recovery, and lost wages for being out of work,” Back the Blue adds.

You can purchase tickets for $20 each to win a brand new, carbon fiber Savage Arms 110UL in 6.5 Creedmoor. Purchase tickets HERE.

“The firearm is generously being provided by Snake River Arms out of Lapwai, ID. MSRP is $1699,” a press release says.

The drawing will be held on March 2nd at noon and will be live-streamed on the Back the Blue LCV Facebook Group. The winner will be notified.

The firearm will need to be picked up at Snake River Arms in Lapwai after a background check has been completed. Only individuals eligible to possess a firearm should buy a raffle ticket. No refunds will be provided.

All donations are tax-deductible and a receipt can be provided if requested.
