Two hunters who were born and raised in Los Alamos, Cory Miller and Shawn Amburgey, are holding an unusual event from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 14 to raise money to help needy people pay for their utilities. The event is at New Beginnings Church, 112 East Road.
“It is really hard for people during the holidays with the cold weather if they get behind on their utility bills so we want to help out,” Miller said. “Nobody should be without heat, water or gas.”
There are two parts to the event; Miller and Amburgey are asking people to donate antlers from deer and elk. They will give those donors cash for the entlers.
“From that cash, you can donate all of it, half of it, some of it. Whatever you donate will be amazing,” Miller said.
He noted that even those who are serious about collecting antlers often don’t have any lying around after June, so people can also donate cash, food or Christmas gifts. Tickets can be bought for a chance to win one of several door prizes.
The second part of the event is a dinner of tacos with all the fixings using venison, elk and oryx. There is no charge for the dinner but there will be a donation jar for people to contribute to the cause.
