Marlborough: Rotary Turkey Shoot at Marlborough High School« Back to Events
Marlborough – Marlborough Rotarians will hold the 31st annual Turkey Shoot Saturday, Nov. 23. This year the annual fundraiser will move to Marlborough High School beginning at 6 p.m.
“This is our big fundraiser of this season,” Marlborough Rotary Club President David Walton stated. “Through the money raised at the Turkey Shoot, the Marlborough Rotary Club can provide community dinners to senior citizens and make a special holiday season for deserving teens and their families.”
This year’s co-chairs of the Turkey Shoot are Peggy Sheldon and Brad Hodgkinson, who are enthusiastic about the upcoming event.
“The Turkey Shoot is always an outstanding fundraising event,” Sheldon said. “We plan for this year’s Turkey Shoot to be just as great an evening for the more than 700 people we expect to attend it. It’s truly heartwarming to see the people from the Marlborough community come out in support of the Rotary Club’s efforts each year, and our members really appreciate the generosity and support of the community!”
The Turkey Shoot will offer a wide variety of prizes including gift certificates to restaurants, gifts for the home, and all the fixings for complete turkey dinners. The event will include the traditional “Turkey Specials,” which consist of prizes like a bicycle, theater tickets, or a Wayside Inn gift certificate. Separate raffles will be held for a special table of children’s prizes. Everyone can register free for the door prize of a television. Over 200 hundred prizes with a value of more than $8,000 will be given away in a little more than three hours.
Rotarians will operate a snack bar with pizza, soft drinks, and homemade baked goodies.
