LACONIA — Most folks think about Pub Mania and the WLNH Children's Auction in December, but this Sunday night, thanks to the Laconia Muskrats, the community will have a chance to find out more about all the fun that happens on those bar stools in December to help support the kids in our community.
Great raffle prizes will be given away including tickets to American Idol Live at the Verizon Center in August, tickets to Lorrie Morgan at the Great Waters Music Festival, Pub Mania collectibles, Muskrat Ball caps, a quart of pure NH Maple syrup, a rocket drink blender, and gift certificates from Prescott's Florists, Cara Bean Coffee and Popcorn Passion. Those wearing a Pub Mania T-shirt will be given a free raffle ticket.
Pub Maniacs are hoping to break an attendance record at this event, so bring your kids, neighbors, lawn chair and blankets for a fun night at Robbie Mills Field on Meredith Center Road at 6:30 Sunday night, July 28. A portion of each ticket sold for the game will be donated by the Muskrats to Pub Mania for the Children's Auction.
Last year Pub Mania raised $165,300 to benefit the WLNH Children's Auction. Patrick's provides the venue for Pub Mania as well as event management, food, non-alcoholic beverages and a variety of entertainment throughout the 24 hours to each of the 720 participants, including live music, games and contests. Prizes and bragging rights are awarded to teams that raise the most money, for best costumes and outstanding team performance. This year's Pub Mania will start at 9 a.m. on Thursday, December 12.
