The Penny Social

The annual Holiday Walk signals the beginning of the winter holiday season in Williamstown.  After a two-year hiatus, the Community Chest is pleased to bring back the Penny Social and Nonprofit Fair, a cornerstone event of the Holiday Walk and a fundraiser for the Community Chest. The event will take place on Saturday, December 3, 2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m in Lasell Gym, located at the corner of Main and Spring streets in Williamstown. An accessible entrance is located on Main Street. Masks are required.

The Penny Social is a benefit auction with a raffle twist. Prizes are displayed, and tickets are purchased at the door and used to bid on items that you like. That’s the auction. Your tickets and everyone else’s are put in a raffle box and the winning ticket is pulled at random.

Many thanks to our community, our merchants, businesses and friends for supporting the Community Chest and to Adams Community Bank for their sponsorship.
