Raffle winners to be chosen on Saturday

The Belgium Fire Department sold all of its tickets in the Fill the Bottle Raffle, and the winners will be selected at the firehouse at 9 a.m. Saturday, March 26.
A total of 2,500 tickets were sold for $25 each. The prizes total $27,350 and will be split between 250 winners. The grand prize is $7,500 and second prize is $2,500.
Proceeds go toward the purchase of 21 new self-contained breathing apparatuses.
The SCBAs, slated to be purchased from MSA Safety Inc., cost about $7,000 each and each pack needs a spare bottle, Fire Chief Dan Birenbaum said.
Most of the departments in Ozaukee County buys the MSA brand  apparatuses, making them interchangeable.
The total purchase is about $180,000. The village and town of Belgium are splitting a portion of the cost, and the Fire Department is raising $60,000 on its own.
