We really need your help this year!

On Friday February 17, 2012 starting at 7:00 p.m. at the Tewksbiury Country Club, we will be having our 4th of July fundraiser called the BIG BANG BASH.  We are going with a summer theme this year so dig out your best summer outfit and please join us.  This is the one where we have the Fireworks display out on the Golf Course. Our entertainers will be the Beach Breakers whose music you enjoyed this past summer at our 4th of July event.  Tickets are $15.00 per person and include hot and cold
  hors d'oeuvres, coffee and tea and pastry at the end of the night and a GOOD time.
I hope to see you there!  To reserve tickets call me at 978-500-1662

Jerry, have you ever considered getting local businesses/families/civic organizations/community organizations to donate baskets, gift certificates, etc. for people to purchase raffles? Example: $10 buys you 15 raffle tickets and you drop as many as you'd like in the bucket for whatever item(s) you'd like to win. I think you can make out REALLY well if something like this were implemented for next year's bash. Keep up the good work.

Melissa: We actually do something exactly like that in November at TCC. It's called the Veterans Day Celebration. This year we did it in concert with the Fire Dept. They had a pin-on ceremony for 4 Promotions and 3 new Firefighters. We had 85 raffle items plus a 50/50 raffle.

First...you did not mention where the fundraiser was being held...tewksbury country club...second...you may want to ask the country club to list the event in their news & upcoming events section...these are included in their emails on their contact list...

Dan: FYI! We have been running these at the TCC for the past 4 years. It will be in the an e-mail going out from the TCC. A little LESS criticism and a little more financial help would be GREATLY appreciated.
