2018 Prize-A-Rama

Festivities for the 4th are gearing up!

The Prize-A-Rama Raffle will be held Friday, June 29, 2018 at 7 p.m. at the Point Shirley Association Hall, 1032 Shirley St., Winthrop. What is a Prize-A-Rama you ask? It is an annual fundraising event hosted by The Point Shirley Association in conjunction with Horrible’s Parade Committee to benefit The Horrible’s Parade. Please help support the Horrible’s Parade by donating an item to be raffled-maybe that Yankee Swap gift from Christmas that just wasn’t your taste, gift cards, baskets of goodies, beverage baskets, summer fun items and the like.

Support this most beloved Winthrop event. Tickets are $1.00 a chance, If you are interested in donating items for the raffle, selling or purchasing raffle tickets, please contact Pat McGee at 617-846-0273.
