Ride-In & Fundraiser

Ride In & Fundraiser to benefit Teen Parent School Program

On Saturday, September 14th, Low XII Central Maine chapter Widows Sons Masonic Riders Association is putting together a ride and fundraiser to benefit the Sharon Abrams Teen Parent School Program at the Maine Children's Home! Motorcyclists will be meeting at JFK Plaza in Waterville (by Tractor Supply) at 10 am and then at 11 am, they will be escorted by Waterville police to the Home. There will be a bike judging contest with a trophy, raffles, and lunch will be provided for $10/person. Anyone is welcome to join the ride, just be sure to bring along an item from our needs list!

This year's theme is a Pie Ride! For every item donated from our Needs List, that person gets to submit a ticket with someone's name on it. If that ticket is drawn, the person gets a pie in the face (or can buy out for $10).

Miss Holiday Angel Pageant

Miss Holiday Angel Pageant benefitting Christmas Program

On Saturday, December 21st, join us at Le Club Calumet in Augusta at 3 pm for the Miss Holiday Angel Pageant! The pageant is open to women ages 7 and up, and contestants have the opportunity to compete in categories, such as; interview, winter wear, on-stage question and evening gown. As well as optional competitions, such as; talent, photogenic and runway model. The goals for the pageant are two-fold. First, to raise awareness of the crucial work that Maine Children’s Home for Little Wanderers does for the community. Second, to collect funds and donated items for the families they serve. Last year’s pageant was a huge success, having raised over $600 and collected 1300 items for the organization’s Christmas program. Wouldn’t it be fantastic to exceed those levels this year?!

To register for this pageant, please message Miss Holiday Angel Pageant or email Abby Peabody at Admission is by donation at the door - check out our Christmas Program's needs list!
