Second Annual Heart to Heart (H2H) Reverse Raffle Fundraiser

An evening of fun to celebrate our partners and friends

On Friday, May 5th, MCSM held our 2nd annual Heart to Heart reverse raffle and celebration. Heart to Heart is a “thank you” as well as a fundraising event, honoring the partners, patrons and friends without whom we could not do the work we have been able to do to assist neighbors in need in the community for over 24 years.

The evening's festivities took place at Terrazza Ristorante in Greenfield with fantastic prizes from local artisans and businesses, along with cash prizes up to $1,000.

The following awards were given to our wonderful friends and partners:

  • “Annual Friend of the Ministries” – Dr. Carolyn Jacobs
  • “Keeping the Children of Franklin County Safe” – NWDA David E. Sullivan and Irene Woods
  • “Loyal Partner of the Ministries” – Sisters of Saint Joseph Springfield
  • “Volunteers of the Year” – Lesley & Kyle Cogswell/ Friends of Gill-Montague Schools
