The following was submitted by the Stoneham Chamber of Commerce:
Dr. Mickey & Associates and Dr. Mickey’s Orthodontics are pleased to announce that their offices are offering a raffle prize drawing for a free full set of orthodontic braces. All proceeds from these raffle tickets – priced at $10 each – will be donated to the Stoneham Marathon Victims Fund. The winning raffle ticket will be pulled during the Stoneham Chamber of Commerce’s Tree Lighting on the Stoneham Town Common, Sunday, December 1, 3:00 – 5:00pm.
“This is a full set of braces, soup to nuts”, notes Dr. Eugene Mickey. “With braces costing upwards of $6,000 these days, we hope to make some parent or some grandparent very happy with this prize. Beyond that, we can all feel good about any donation going to help offset medical expenses for Stoneham’s Marathon Bombing victims”.
Raffle tickets can be purchased at StonehamBank at 80 Montvale Avenue, M-F 8:30am until 5:00pm, and 8:00am to noon on Saturdays (781) 438-0430, and at the Stoneham Chamber of Commerce at 271 Main Street, Suite L-02, M-F from 9:00am until 3:00pm (781) 438-0001. All raffle ticket sales are tax deductible, and the raffle tickets are transferrable to family members or friends who need the orthodontic work performed.
Dr. Mickey & Associates and Dr. Mickey’s Orthodontics are once again sponsoring the Tree Lighting festivities this year. The Tree Lighting is a cherished holiday community event in Stoneham. Families can enjoy holiday music, caroling, visits with Santa, pony rides, ice sculpting, hot chocolate and other treats, and more. The festivities conclude with the annual countdown to the lighting of the big holiday tree in the center of the Common.
