Americus--  Tornado-ravaged Sumter Regional Hospital will be demolished next week and one lucky south Georgian will help bring down the walls.

The Americus hospital is now selling First Strike raffle tickets. For $5, you could win the opportunity to throw the first big punch to the building that was destroyed by a deadly tornado on March 1st.

One person will be able to tear down a wall with a big demolition claw.

You can purchase those raffle tickets at the Hospice of Americus and Sumter County, Sumter Bank and Trust, Wachovia, First State Bank, PeopleSouth Community Bank, Clinic Drug Store and Citizen's Bank of Americus.

Demolition will begin next Wednesday at noon. There will be a farewell ceremony.
