The Scholarship Fund of Concord and Carlisle is once again helping to cheer on the Concord-Carlisle High School football team by sponsoring a 50/50 raffle. The Scholarship Fund will sell tickets at the Patriots’ home opening football game against Lexington High School on September 15 at 7:00 pm at Memorial Stadium, with the drawing at halftime. The winning ticket holder will receive half of the raffle sales and all net proceeds will be used by The Scholarship Fund to support need-based college scholarships for students who have either resided in, or attended school in, Concord or Carlisle and have graduated from secondary school.

Lucy Miller, Chair of The Scholarship Fund, says of the raffle, “The Scholarship Fund has a long history of supporting young people who are outstanding scholars, athletes, and artists, and we have a special connection to the football team.  CCHS Hall of Fame Coach Al Robichaud’s family established a named scholarship fund in 1997 to honor his 29 years of teaching science and coaching football at CCHS, and his son, current head football coach Mike Robichaud and a recipient himself of support from The Scholarship Fund while in college, has been a strong advocate of The Scholarship Fund for years. We are thrilled to be back at the Patriots’ first home game against a rival like Lexington, and we hope the 50/50 raffle brings a little extra excitement to a great night.”

In 2017, The Scholarship Fund awarded almost $280,000 in scholarships to students from Concord, Carlisle, and Boston; in the last 51 years, more than $3 million dollars has been awarded to over 1300 students.

Raffle pricing will be $1 for 1 ticket, $5 for 6 tickets, and $10 for 15 tickets. For additional details about the raffle, contact Bee Loprete, Assistant Chair of The Scholarship Fun, at info@ccscholarshipfund.org
