Manchaug Pond Foundation FundraisingSorry for any inconvenience, but it is out our hands… we have had to change the date of the Spring Social and raffle drawing so here it is…

The Manchaug Pond Foundation Spring Social and BIG Raffle drawing will now take place Saturday, June 25, 2016.  This is a change from the original date of June 18th.  Please spread the word to ticket holders and those wanting to join in support of Manchaug Pond.

We’ll begin the morning at 9:00 AM at the YMCA Camp Blanchard Dining Hall with coffee and a delicious homemade breakfast

2015 Spring Social buffet

Breakfast Buffet 2015 Spring Social

buffet put on by the Fundraising Committee and our members. The Social offers a great opportunity to start the summer and reconnect with our summer lake neighbors and friends.  The BIG Raffle’s reverse drawing – losers first! – will provide plenty of excitement to end the morning.

Our treasurer will be on hand if you haven’t paid your dues yet or if you are new to the area and wish to join the Foundation. MPF logowear and photos will be on sale with a whole new inventory of shirts, baseball caps, long-sleeve golf shirts, fleece and more!  Informational brochures on water quality topics and safety will also be available.

If you haven’t purchased your BIG Raffle ticket, there are a couple left! Specifically, #91 and #94, so contact us  asap or reserve your ticket online if you want to get in a great game – great odds, great prizes and a great cause!  All funds raised, after payment of prize money, will directly benefit Manchaug Pond.

Here’s the raffle details:  ticket price is $100 with ONLY 100 tickets sold.  Again this year the Fundraising Committee is offering THREE PRIZES. (or more depending on how much of a risk-taker you want to be!)  Three winners will have the option of taking the CA$H or choosing from 100 – $30, $10, $5 Mass. Lottery Instant Game scratch tickets! That’s a 1st place prize of one hundred $30 scratch tickets or $3,000 cash; 2nd place is one hundred $10 scratch tickets or $1,000 cash; and 3rd place is one hundred $5.00 scratch tickets or $500 cash.
