On October 9, Johnson was burning brush when something exploded and flashed back at him. He was taken by helicopter to OSF St. Anthony Medical Center in Rockford for treatment of third-degree burns from the waist down. His healing process is expected to take at least two years. “He is home healing the best he can with stretches for skin grafts and massage therapy for the scarring,” states the raffle flyer.

Since he’s not able to maneuver around as well, funds raised will help Dennis and his wife Kristy purchase a golf cart, which will allow him to help around the home and farm. The cost per slot is $10, with 100 slots to be sold before the drawing is held.

The winner of the raffle will get a heavy-duty patio umbrella, two Dugout Mugs, a small charcoal grill, and a small NASCAR cooler.

As of June 10th, 17 tickets have been sold. Tickets were originally $20 but organizers decided to bring it down to $10. Anyone who paid the original price can get their money back or add their name to another slot for a second chance.   

Stop by the convenience store during normal hours to purchase a slot and help the Johnson family in their healing and recovery process.
