STOUGHTON LIFE TEEN FUNDRAISER! The Chateau in Stoughton is providing a community outlet to local non-profit groups for fundraising. This is a great way to raise money for important community organizations, like Stoughton Life Teen, that are often not financially supported to the extent of what is needed to succeed.
For lunch and dinner on Thursday, August 9, bring the fundraiser ticket found in our gallery and dine-in or order take-out (781-341-2503) from The Chateau. When paying your check, give the wait person your ticket. The ticket will be attached to your check and The Chateau will contribute 20% of the total bill to Stoughton Life Teen! Please print out ticket on colored paper!
With your help (and big appetites) we can raise a great deal of money to support the Life Teen ministry!
