In a classic case of a Tewksbury business giving back to the community, Thermo Fisher Scientific hosted a benefit raffle at Kimball Farm in Westford earlier this month, with the proceeds going to the Strongwater Farm Therapeutic Equestrian program.

The raffle itself raised more than $3,000. But afterward, Thermo Fisher announced it was matching the money raised dollar for dollar for a total donation of $6,150.

"This was a wonderful event with approximately 275 people in attendance," said Strongwater Farm Director Patti Lessard. "Thermo Fisher continues to support Strongwater in so many ways and needs to be thanked at every possible opportunity."
