Fundraisers in works for deputy’s son

by Wes Mayer

This month, the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office is organizing two raffle fundraisers for Will Hutchins, the son of a Coweta deputy who was involved in a life-changing car accident in 2013.

Hutchins is the son of Sgt. Bryan Hutchins, who works in the sheriff’s office’s crime suppression unit. On June 1, 2013, the younger Hutchins was involved in a rollover accident that paralyzed him from the waist down. Since the accident, Hutchins has still been able to do many of the things he loves, but now he is a senior in high school and his goal is to walk across the stage at graduation.

This summer, Hutchins participated in Beyond Therapy at the Shepherd Center in Atlanta to help him reach this goal, but he still has a ways to go. To help the Hutchins family raise more money for the therapy, which is not covered by insurance, the sheriff’s office is putting on two raffles – one for a hunting rifle, a Ruger 308 model 6953 with a Redfield Revolution rifle scope, and another for a one-year membership to Atlanta Gun Range and Ordnance in Newnan.

The membership to the Atlanta Gun Range and Ordnance comes with multiple advantages, including unlimited range use, one free target with each visit, four free guest passes, free eye and ear protection and discounts on ammunition, accessories, competitions, gun cleanings and repairs and upgrades.

Tickets for each raffle cost $5 and can be purchased from the main Coweta County Sheriff’s Office at 560 Greison Trail or the east side office at 55 Literary Lane. They can also be purchased from the sheriff’s office’s mobile command post at the Kiwanis Coweta County Fair from Sept. 18 to 26 between 6 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. The drawing for the winners of the raffles will be held at 8 p.m. on Sept. 27 at the Coweta County Fair.
