Two local businesses raise money for family

December 3, 2013 by  

Anthony Holmes, owner of Holmes Auto Detailing in Hanover, and Alex Kesaris, owner of the Braintree Brewhouse, have joined forces with a raffle for two top prizes with all proceeds going to the Ford family of Braintree who lost their home to a fire in the early hours of November 25.

The two local business owners are using flyer printing to make the community more aware of the eventand what is being done to help the family. In the flyer, Holmes and Kesaris said that they want to help the Ford family to get back on their feet as soon as possible during the holiday season and into the New Year.

Sales of raffle tickets, which are $10 each, began last week and will continue until December 23, with the winners of the raffles to be announced on Christmas Eve. Tickets can be purchased at Holmes Auto Detailing in Hanover and at the Braintree Brewhouse.

The packages up for grabs are worth about $750 each. Each contains one complete detailing for an SUV or a car, four express details that need to be on the same vehicle during the 2014 calendar year, and one $100 gift certificate to Braintree Brewhouse.

Although the home in which the Fords lived was built by Habitat for Humanity, no-one in the family was injured during the blaze.

As of last week, $16,000 has already been raised by means of an online fundraising campaign.
