The Scholarship Fund teams up with the CCHS Football!
Press release: 8/20/2018
The Scholarship Fund of Concord and Carlisle is once again helping to cheer on the Concord-Carlisle High School (CCHS) football team by sponsoring a 50/50 raffle. The Scholarship Fund will sell tickets at the Patriots’ home opening football game against Oliver Ames High School on September 7 at 7:00 pm at Memorial Stadium, with the drawing at halftime. The winning ticket holder will receive half of the raffle sales and all net proceeds will be used by The Scholarship Fund to support need-based college scholarships for students who live in or have graduated from secondary school in Concord or Carlisle.
Bee Loprete, Chair of The Scholarship Fund and parent of former CCHS football player Joey (class of 2018), says of the raffle, “The mission of The Scholarship Fund of Concord and Carlisle is to bring folks together to support kids, and that’s just what everyone is there to do at a Friday night football game, so it’s the perfect combination. In addition, The Scholarship Fund has a special connection to the event because CCHS Hall of Fame Coach Al Robichaud’s family established a named fund in 1997 to honor his 29 years of teaching science and coaching football at CCHS, and his son, current head football coach Mike Robichaud and a recipient himself of support from The Scholarship Fund while in college, has been a strong advocate of The Scholarship Fund for years. We are thrilled to be back at the Patriots’ first home game for a third year, and we hope the 50/50 raffle brings a little extra excitement to a great night.”
In 2018, The Scholarship Fund awarded almost $280,000 in scholarships to students from Concord, Carlisle, and Boston; in the last 52 years, more than $3 million dollars has been awarded to over 1400 students.
Raffle pricing will be $1 for 1 ticket, $5 for 6 tickets and $10 for 15 tickets.
