Santa Sleigh Ride Gives Boost To Wamesit Friends And Family Foundation

Jan 20, 2021 02:33AM ● By Bill Gilman
While the Covid-19 pandemic forced the cancellation of the annual Lighting of the Common, that didn't stop Santa Claus from visiting in the days leading up to Christmas.
Better still, jolly old St. Nick joined forces with the staff at Wamesit Lanes Family Entertainment Center to raise money for the Wamesit Friends and Family Foundation.
Residents throughout the town had the chance to make a donation to the foundation to be included on the route for the Santa Sleigh Ride. A donation of $25 got an address onto the route for a "drive by". A $100 donation earned a "Meet and Greet" and photo op with Santa and his helpers.
The event raised more than $4,000 for the Friends and Family Foundation, which provides scholarships to local students and assistance to Tewksbury residents and their families in need of a hand-up.
If you would like to contribute to the foundation, you can text "FRIENDS" to 1-855-202-2100.
