DERRY — The 2012 9-and 10-year-old Derry Little League Competitive Tournament Team is raising money for the Jimmy Fund.
Raffle tickets will be sold for $5. Currently, the following items have been donated to raffle; more will be added as they are donated.
The drawing for the raffle will take place on Aug. 11. Winners do not need to be present and will be contacted. All proceeds will go directly to the Jimmy Fund.
Prizes to date include: two tickets to the Boston Red Sox game on Aug. 26, donated by Ray Feoli; an autographed item donated by the Boston Red Sox; $50 in gift certificates donated by T-Bones; four box seat tickets to the Aug. 26 Fisher Cat Game, donated by the Fisher Cats; a $25 gift certificate donated by The Common Man; and $180 in fireworks donated by Phantom Fireworks (you must be 18 to win this raffle).
The Fisher Cats will be hosting Derry Little League Jimmy Fund Day on Sunday, Aug. 5, at 1:35 p.m. A percentage of ticket sales will go directly to the Jimmy Fund. Tickets are $12 each.
On Aug. 11, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., the team will be hosting a yard sale at O'Hara Field. If you would like to donate any items to be sold at the yard sale, you may drop your items off at the field at 7 a.m. that day or reach out to one of the contacts below to make other arrangements.
They have pickup trucks available to help transport larger items if needed. All proceeds from the yard sale will go directly to the Jimmy Fund.
If you have any gently used children's books to donate, bring these to the yard sale. The books will be donated directly to the Dana Farber Institution for the children.
If you would like to purchase raffle tickets, Fisher Cat tickets or make a donation to the yard sale, contact Christine Sykes at firstname.lastname@example.org or Kelly Couture at email@example.com.
