Waldoboro, Maine - John Blamey, President of the Medomak Valley Community Foundation, announced that four Red Sox tickets are the top prize in the Foundation's annual Summer Fun Raffle for The Waldoboro Community Project. The Community Project is a fund raising campaign to develop a recreation and community center complex on Town-owned land behind Miller Elementary School. Private donations will finance the bulk of this project, in a phased development plan.

President Blamey stated, "The Foundation is dedicated to the success of the Waldoboro Community Project, and the raffle provides an opportunity to publicize the Project, promote healthy summer activities, and have some fun. The raffle is supporting Phase I of the project, which is the construction of two additional youth athletic fields and renovation of Philbrook field."

This year, the Summer Fun Raffle prizes include Four Loge Box Seat tickets to the Sox vs. Twins game on Sunday, July 31st. In addition, to the grand prize, there is an autographed picture of Jason Varitek, donated by the Red Sox, a gift certificate donated by the Waldoboro Hannaford store, and a gift certificate from Maine Sport Outfitters of Rockport.
