Joe Berg at Idaho Archery writes that Russell Barton (the bowyer who creates the amazing LoTR replica bows at Sticks and Stones) has donated an Elven Mirkwood Bow for a charity raffle that they are conducting.

All money raised from this bow will go to help children through the Children’s Miracle Network to help children with life threatening illnesses. This is their fifth year the club has been involved in fundraising for the network and their goal this year is to reach $100,000. In the last four years, they’ve raised more than $89,000.

The bow raffle is online at their site until April 19, 2003. Tickets are $10 and can be paid via Paypal. The raffle drawing will be held in Eagle, Idaho on Sunday, May 4, 2003. [More]
