By  | 

DENISON, Tex. (KXII) A Denison man has put together a raffle fundraiser to benefit the family of Ariel Holley after she was nearly beaten to death in her home a week ago.

Raffle tickets are on sale for $25 each, 2 for $40, or 5 for $100. Tickets can only be purchased at North Rig Grill and at Grayson Social in Denison. All funds raised will be given to the Holley family to help with recovery expenses.

Sponsors have donated big prizes for one lucky winner including dinner for four at North Rig Grill and City Limits, a cabin stay outside of Denison, courtesy of Briscoe Homes, and a fishing trip for four with Trophy Hunters Fishing Guide.

"What was going on with Ariel and what happened in this tragic situation, I just felt putting this together to benefit her, and the support that Texoma has already shown that it would be good for a really good cause, and I just wanted to help her out as best as I could," said organizer, Donny Lasko.

We'll be announcing the winner here on News 12 on January 20th.
