Wilmington Police Recreation Association would like to thank Backwater Guns & Outfitters for the generous gift to our WPRA Send a Cop to College fundraiser. The safe raffle was a huge success, and that would not have been possible without their donation of the beautiful Champion Collector S17 edition safe. Your generous check of $2,000 will make an immediate difference in the lives of two (2) Officers. Thank you again for your kindness and support!!
