A youth baseball team has stirred controversy with an 'inappropriate' fundraiser

A youth baseball team has stirred controversy with an 'inappropriate' fundraiser.

The Hilliard Colts planned to raffle off guns to raise funds during a community dinner this Saturday, the Washington Post reported.

The Ohio-based organization ultimately canceled the event just days before it was set to take place, amid backlash from several parents.

The decision came after community members saw ads promoting the event โ€” where four guns would be auctioned off, including a military-style AR-15.

The Washington Post reported that at least two of the raffleโ€™s sponsors had connections to firearm sales.

MICHELLE VROOM, A HILLIARD RESIDENT, TOLD THE POST THAT THE RAFFLE "TRIVIALIZES A NATIONAL CRISIS" AFTER SEVERAL MASS SHOOTINGS INVOLVED AR-15s.

The organization will offer refunds, or allow participants to transfer their raffle tickets for a chance to win a new prize, such as a Visa gift card
