Patton Doll House Raffle to Benefit Local Charities
Green Meadows Farm Raffles “Dream House” for 2 Local Charities
It may not be on a par with TV’s “Extreme Makeover - Home Edition” – but you could walk away with a beautiful new home by Christmas and put it in the back seat of your car.
Green Meadows Farm in Hamilton is raffling off a limited edition Franklin Mint “Heartland Hollow” dollhouse, valued at $2,500. Tickets are $1 each or six for $5 and all proceeds will benefit two local charities – Operation Troop Support in Danvers and Acord Food Pantry in Hamilton. Tickets are on sale now at the Green Meadows Farmstand, 656 Asbury St. in Hamilton.
The country-style dollhouse, designed by artists Charles Wysocki, features a front porch and brick chimney and is completely furnished down to the curtains. The house is 28 inches tall and 42 inches wide, and is enclosed in a custom-built display case that includes many additional pieces of furniture. For several years it was a wonderful feature at the Farmstand, but space requirements sent it into storage at the Patton Homestead just down the street. Now that the Patton estate has been donated to the Town of Hamilton, this home was looking for a new home.
Joanne Patton, owner of Green Meadows Farm, selected Operation Troop Support as a recipient in honor of the “good work they do supporting our deployed troops, veterans and service families.”
Patton also will be sharing the proceeds with the Acord Food Pantry, which has been providing food assistance in Hamilton, Wenham and neighboring communities for the past 21 years.
The lucky winner will be drawn on Dec. 18. Stop by Green Meadows Farm and make some child’s fantasy come true, while also helping your neighbors and military families.
