Meat Raffle

April 6, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Turner Hall

60 Branch Street, Clinton, MA 

Wait, what? A raffle of meat? Yes, exactly…13 rounds of meat giveaways to lucky rafflers. Ok, it’s not in Worcester, but it’s just a short drive away in Clinton, and it is in support of Hanscom Federal Credit Union’s Marathon Team as they fund-raise for Boston Children’s Hospital. Pack your cooler and head to Turner Hall for what promises to be an event you’ll be talking about for years…Meat Raffle 2019! Honestly though, it’s the start of grilling season and 145 Front has a great grill setup to bring your winnings back to, plus there’s a cash bar and concessions at the event to keep you entertained.
