As has been the tradition for the past 78 years, members of the Pelham Civic Association will be selling raffle tickets throughout the Town starting on September 9th, raising funds to fuel their award winning programs that assist the youth, the elderly, the financially needy and the mentally and physically challenged. Pelham Civic Raffle Chairman Mike Recca stated, “Our members are all geared up to sell our exciting raffles in both Pelham (in front and in back of DeCicco & Sons) and Pelham Manor (at Dunkin Donuts). Once again, we’re giving away fabulous prizes, including a $10,000 cash grand prize! 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!”
The fundraising season concludes on Friday October 27th, 2017 when the Pelham Civics will be hosting their 78th Annual Dinner Dance Gala at The Fountainhead, in New Rochelle… a fabulous venue for a terrific, fun and exciting time that is set out to be Pelham’s “social highlight of the year, honoring Persons of the year Bill Taubner and Bob Tracy. According to Dinner Dance Chairman Phil Carfora, “This year’s Gala is slated to be another success with a complete venue of wonderful cuisine, terrific music, and extraordinary honorees! A good suggestion is to buy your tickets early!” Civic President Ken Shirreffs concluded, “Each year we are encouraged by the entire community who continually - and enthusiastically - come out and support the Civics and all the work we do throughout the year!”
Founded in 1939, the Pelham Civics is one of New York State’s most active volunteer, charitable organizations. For more info visit their website at pelhamcivics.org.
