Autumfest Committee announces fundraising competition

WOONSOCKET – The Autumn-fest Committee announces a friendly, fundraising competition between all local non-profit organizations.

The organization that raises the most money for Autumnfest until the deadline of Sept. 30, will be declared the “Autumnfest Non-Profit Winner.” The top fundraising group will receive a trophy that will travel year to year to the winner’s location and placement within the Autumnfest Parade with a banner declaring them the winner.

“We are excited to announce this fundraising contest as a great way to build a partnership between Autumnfest and the many non-profit organizations in Woonsocket who have large networks of people that work and support the great work they do for our community,” Garrett Mancieri, Autumnfest Chairman, said.

It will be up to each organization to come up with different creative ways to raise money. Checks should be presented to the Autumnfest fundraising coordinator at their location and pictures will be taken and submitted to the local newspapers.
