Benjamin's Fund made a donation this past weekend.

A very special thank you to Rob from Home Plate in Taunton for allowing us, Benjamin's Fund, to come into his restaurant and hold a 50/50 raffle.  We were able to sell raffle tickets throughout the evening and Rob even helped solicit donations from his guests by giving them prizes for donating.  We had thought we would make about $100 but ended up making almost $300!!  It was a great night and we raised some more money for Benjamin's Fund....with the help of Home Plate and Rob....
