BRISTOL – Tickets for a special raffle are now on sale to raise money for the Bristol Police Department's K9 fund that provides for the care of their four-legged partner, Arro.

Barbara Greenwood is raffling off "Chrissa Maxwell," one of the much-loved American Girl dolls that nearly every young girl has on her Christmas or birthday wish list. The prize is more than just the doll though. Known for her sewing talents, Greenwood has included a beautiful wardrobe for Chrissa that is not just clothing but shoes and even a pair of roller skates. The set also comes with a wooden doll bed and includes a pillow and pretty quilt for the doll.

"The best part," Greenwood said, "is that except for the bed, everything fits in a carrying case that comes with the doll."

The doll and all the accessories have an estimated value of $500.

While tickets for the raffle first went on sale during the Fourth of July parade and fireworks last week, they are available any day from DJ's Crafts shop on Pleasant St. in downtown Bristol. Greenwood said people can also look for her raffle table at some of the many summer events scheduled over the next several weeks.

Tickets are $1 each or six for $5 and 100-percent of the proceeds will go to the BPD K9 fund. The winning ticket will be drawn on Saturday, Aug. 24. at the Old Home Day celebration in Kelley Park.
