Fundraising For the East Providence Scout House
Because the East Providence Scout House Association cannot hold its annual craft fair at the East Providence High School due to the safety concerns caused by the Coronavirus, it will be holding a calendar raffle. A winning ticket will be drawn every day during the month of November. Prizes include a $100 gift card to Cardi's Furniture, a $100. gift card to Target, a $50 gift card to Walmart, a $50 certificate to China Gourmet, a money tree, a landscaping certificate and much, much more. They are too numerous to list here. The cost of a ticket is $10.00 and gives you more than 30 chances to win a prize. Winning tickets will be placed back into the raffle bin for chances to win additional prizes. Tickets may be purchased every Saturday in October: October 3, 10, 17, 24 and 31, from 10:00 am until 12:00 noon at the East Providence Scout House located at 351 Willett Ave. in Riverside. Proceeds from this raffle will be used to pay for the expenses and maintenance costs of operating the East Providence Scout House which is used by East Providence Girl Scouts as a meeting place. (Note: The East Providence Scout House Association is a nonprofit organization not affiliated in any manner with Girl Scouts of America, Girl Scouts USA, or Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England (formerly known as Girl Scouts of Rhode Island). As such, it must raise its own funds to pay for the expenses and maintenance costs. Please call Laura Crowe at (401) 935-8700 if you have any questions or concerns.
