2023 Winterfest Raffle

Gardner, MA – November 20, 2023 – As the holiday season approaches Mount Wachusett Community College prepares for the annual Winterfest Raffle, held December 5 through 7, with winners being pulled on the 7th at 2PM.

The event is sponsored by Student Services, Student Life and CATS (Campus Activity Team for Students) and the funds raised are used for the Emergency Student Loan Fund.

There will be wreaths decorated by student organizations and themed raffle baskets created by MWCC faculty and staff. The baskets grow more extravagant with every passing year. Last year the greatest hit was the “Student Services, We Deliver!” basket which included an Ooni Pizza Oven and a $100 gift card that could be used to take a pizza dough cooking class. The Marketing Departments “Shop Local Business” basket was another hot ticket item which included lift passes to Wachusett Mountain Ski Area and a stay at Great Wolf Lodge.

The public is welcome and encouraged to participate in the festivities. Bidders can stop by the Gardner Campus Common Area, accessible through the main entrance, Tuesday December 5th from 9 am to 6 pm, Wednesday December 6th from 9 am to 6 pm and Thursday, December 7th from 9 am to 2 pm.
