MA Residents (and beyond) Have a Shot at Winning $25,000 on Feb. 25
It's that time of year when residents all throughout Massachusetts and beyond have a shot at winning $25,000 all going toward a good cause.
Every year in southern Berkshire County, the Kiwanis Club of Sheffield hosts their annual scholarship raffle. Now in its 23rd year, the raffle is a way for the club to raise money for scholarships for local youth throughout the southern Berkshires. Many scholarships have been given away over the years thanks in part to the annual scholarship raffle.
This Year's Raffle Will Celebrate a Late Sheffield Kiwanis Member and Create a Brand New Memorial Scholarship
This year a new memorial scholarship is being created for the raffle which is in tribute to late southern Berkshire resident, Jim Collingwood. Jim was a member of Sheffield Kiwanis for many years and was a pillar in the southern Berkshire community. A hard worker, a wonderful family man, and a giving member of the community, Jim was loved by all that knew him.
