Project Graduation fundraiser sparks controversy online
PORTLAND, Maine (WGME) – A fundraiser for a Project Graduation in northern Maine is sparking controversy online after recent school shootings in Florida and Maryland.
A 9 mm gun is being raffled off.
The parent who donated the gun sees no problem with the prize. She just wants to help raise money so students can have a safe and alcohol-free party after graduation.
Michelle Crane, a parent who owns MACS Trading Post in Houlton, promoted the raffle on her Facebook page.
She says they've raffled off guns before, and always raise a good amount of money, but declined to say how much.
