    Stafford Fire Department offering up Corvette in annual, money-making raffle

    Stafford Fire Department offering up Corvette in annual, money-making raffle

    Bob Fitzsimmons and Mike Boyle get a little sun sitting next to an eye-catching jet black 1963 Corvette Convertible. Fitzsimmons and Boyle said they will be in the same spot everyday, outside the Stafford Fire Department building, from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. selling raffle tickets for the vehicle (or $50,000 in cash) until the drawing on Father's Day.

    This is the 26th year the SFD has raffled off a Corvette. Fitzsimmons said it's a very successful fund raiser for the department.

    "We own all our own engines, the building and the land behind it," Fitzsimmons said. "The town gives us a little bit of money, but not much. It (the raffle sure helps with my taxes, I'll tell you that."

    The raffle is known throughout the world, Fitzsimmons said. They publicize it through their own mailing list as well as magazine ads.

    Tickets are $1 each, or three for $2, or $10 for a book of 15.
