Tradition means a lot to the members of the Pelham Civic Association. As has been the organization’s legacy for the past 80 years, you’ll find Pelham Civic members selling raffle tickets throughout the Town, raising funds to fuel their award winning programs that assist the youth, the elderly, the financially needy and the mentally and physically challenged. Spearheaded by Pelham Civic Raffle Chairman Bryan Diffley, raffle tables are set up at DeCicco & Sons in Pelham, and at Dunkin’ or Lenny’s in Pelham Manor Once again, they’ll be giving giving away fabulous prizes, including a $10,000 cash grand prize! Other terrific raffle items include a $1000 cash prize, a Flat Screen TV donated by Tiso Appliances, a $500 Gas Card donated by Bencivengo Gulf Station, a Golf Outing 4-some donated by the Pelham Country Club, and $500 in Dining donated by Pelham restaurants Café Regatta, Cantina Lobos, La Fontanella, Rockwells and Sergio’s. And as a reminder, ALL of the money raised goes into the Civics’ programs, projects and events that assist the families and individuals of our community!
