Manchaug Pond Foundation Holds Spring Social; Draws BIG Raffle Fundraiser Winners

2015 Spring Social

More than 60 attend this year’s Social at the YMCA Camp Blanchard facility on the shores of Manchaug Pond.

Karen Bronson of the Fundraising Committee reports:

The 2015 Spring Social held at the YMCA, was attended by members and friends of Manchaug Pond Foundation who brought their appetite, good conversation, and the hope of winning the BIG Raffle. Most left with a fully belly, new friends and empty wallets – all for a good cause – Manchaug Pond.



Congratulations to the three 2015 BIG raffle winners:Big Raffle 2015  3

  •  1st place for a $3,000 win, ticket #17 – Paul Langlois;
  •  2nd place winner taking home $1,000, ticket #79 – Bill Staruk
  • and  pulled for the 3rd place win of $500, ticket #66 – Paul and Cathy Laverdiere.

Despite the winners not being present for the drawing, the crowd cheered for their win with excitement! This year’s bounty will be paid out in scratch tickets or cold, hard cash – winner’s choice!
