Gary Macke of Macke Fur and Hide, Royal, Nebraska, will again be sponsoring his Kids Fur Raffle.

All the proceeds from the sale of the fur will be used as prizes. 50% of the money will be paid out to three winners drawn from the pool of contributors. The other 50% of the money will be used to buy prizes to be given to the remaining participants.
