Celebrate Father’s Day While Supporting Local Men and Boys

Father’s Day is a time to celebrate fathers, father figures and families. As a way to do that while supporting local men and boys, the Men & Boys’ Fund of Main Street Community Foundation is holding a fun-filled event on Father’s Day weekend. Family, Fun & Fathers will be held on Saturday, June 19 from 4-7pm at Lessard Lanes in Plainville.

Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for children under the age of 16. They can be purchased online at mainstreetfoundation.org/mbf-event or by sending payment to Main Street Community Foundation, PO Box 2702, Bristol, CT 06010. Tickets must be purchased in advance by Friday, June 12, and the event is limited to 100 attendees in order to comply with the health and safety recommendations of the State of Connecticut and Lessard Lanes.

Every ticket includes two games of bowling, one round of mini-golf, a pizza slice, a soft drink, and a door prize ticket for various prizes. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Men & Boys’ Fund, which Main Street Community Foundation established in 2016 to make it possible for men and boys to improve the quality of their lives, increase self-sufficiency, and make a positive difference in their community. The Fund serves Bristol, Burlington, Plainville, Plymouth, Southington, and Wolcott and has awarded a total of over $28,000 in program and immediate response grants.

“This is a fun-raiser, not just a fundraiser,” said Rich Carmelich, the Fund’s Advisory Board Chair. “The main purpose is to provide men, boys, and their families with a fun-filled event while supporting their neighbors.”
