Live Local Play Local


CFMC Live Local Play Local Raffle Celebrates Middlesex County!

Join us for 31 days of fun!

No matter where you live in Middlesex County, let’s give back to the Community by participating in this “win-win-win” raffle!

Who knows? The winning ticket may just be yours.

The Community is where we work, where we play, where we call home.

This summer, let’s live locally and play locally by supporting the businesses and nonprofits right in our back yard through the Community Foundation of Middlesex County.

Can we count on you? You can purchase tickets HERE  …  and you can see the drawing dates and prizes HERE

Together we can give back to the community by participating in this fun ”win-win-win” raffle and support the Community Foundation’s work throughout the community! Who knows? You may get introduced to your new favorite restaurant or store.

100% of ticket sales support the Community Foundation’s work in the community. Special thanks to the Board members and volunteers of CFMC who purchased and donated all the gift cards from our local businesses.

How does a 31-Day Raffle work?

Daily Drawings

Every day from Monday, June 21 through Wednesday, July 21 the Community Foundation will draw a lucky winner.

Each ticket you purchase gives you one chance to win. So, if you buy 5 tickets, you could win 5 times!

Since we have more than thirty-one (31) prizes, every Friday we will give away at least two prizes (sometimes more)!

Announcements will be posted here and made via Facebook and Instagram every day, and a recap of the week’s winners via email every Friday.

Make sure you like our page to get notifications!



If You Win

We will mail your prize AND you get to nominate your favorite Middlesex County nonprofit for a chance to win one of our famous pop-up grants.

Every Friday during the 31 Day Raffle, we will draw the name of a nonprofit in our community to receive a virtual pop up grant!

Thank You For Your Support

100% of ticket sales goes to support the Community Foundation of Middlesex County’s work in the community to help make a better today and a brighter tomorrow for all.

KOCO (Kids of Chatham Organization) students created special signs for our CFMC friends to show off how your support through a grant gave them new tools and lots of fun.
