Bradford penny drive, and Consentino raffle boost Santa Fund


The Haverhill Gazette

---- — Thanks to all who donated to the 2013 Gazette Santa Fund. Big donations and small added up to almost $12,000 for Haverhill families in need of a little help this Christmas.

Special thanks go to the Garrison Golf Center, which hosted the 44th annual Santa Fund hole-in-one contest, and the many volunteers who helped out. The fall event kicks off the drive, giving it an important early boost.

Happy New Year to all.
