Raffles, Bingo and Tag Sales..Oh My!

Looking for a fun and cheap place to beat the heat this summer and enjoy delicious and affordable Polish-American cuisine? Mater Dolorosa Parish located on 67 ST. Kolbe Drive in Holyoke MA is hosting their annual summer festival August 21st and 22nd of 2010. Every year this parish puts together a festival and raises money to give back to the parish through creative games of chance, a giant tag sale, raffles with $1,000 cash prize, a super 50/50 raffle and entertainment for all ages. From growing up in the Holyoke area, many employees from our office have attended and continue to return with raving reviews of the event. The large tag sale extends all around the parish hall and offers something for everyone. The children’s games are perfect for keeping their attention, and cost less than a dollar to participate. A continuing Bingo game is what draws in most visitors, but it’s the Polish-American dishes that keep the visitors lingering around for hours with their traditional golumbke’s, pierogies and kielbasa. American food is offered as well for those favoring hot dogs and hamburgers. Having gone to this event on more than several occasions, we assure you that this festival is a one of a kind experience with inexpensive costs. Volunteers from the parish help to run the events and sales, and offer a warm welcome to all that pass through the doors. The event will take place this year from 11am-7pm and there is plenty of parking for visitors. This establishment is suitable for all ages, handicap accessible and even air conditioned. Come and try your chances at the Mater Dolorosa Parish and enjoy some good fun for a great cause!
