Scholarship Raffle in Memory of Joe Polito

Scholarship Raffle in Memory of Joe Polito
Saturday April 13, 2012 3PM to 7PM
The Village Green Cafe/Restaurant, 97 Chapel Street, Wlfd CT 06492 (203) 284-0447

As posted from the Facebook event from Maria Polito

Joe would have been 50 yrs old this April, so we would like to do a raffle to raise money for scholarships to go to Sheehan High School in Joe's name. We tried and tried to set something big up but due to the economy and peoples schedules we realized it wasn't practical. Billy Mazzucco offered to provide a DJ and Rosanne Turtola Bickford offered to make a birthday cake so we could celebrate Joe's b-day together. Please bring your families as this will be a reunion of sorts, and children are more then welcomed. Beverages and food will be available to purchase at a reasonable price.

I ask that everyone spread the word and if you have any pictures of Joe and wouldn't mind making a copy to bring that I could keep. I figured we could pass them around and remember our times with Joe. At the end of the night I will present the pictures to my Mother who I am sure will be grateful to have them. Again, please the pass the word around to make this successful!!

If anyone would like to donate raffle gifts or money in advance you can contact me at 203-213-0469 (text) or email me @

FYI...drawing will be directly after at 7pm, you need NOT be present to claim raffle gifts. I will take names and numbers if you win I will contact you and arrange to get prizes to you.
