Mystic U19 Italy Tour Fundraisers

Fellow Mystics,
As many of you already know, the Mystic River U19 Team is planning their biennial tour, which this year will take them to Italy.
The team is traveling to Italy from February 14-23, 2020.  The boys will be playing two international matches, training with international coaches, and going to see Italy v Scotland in Rome.
If any players, old boys, or family and friends would like to join the tour please email me at [email protected].
We are also beginning our fundraising efforts to subsidize the cost of the trip for our young Mystics.  We plan to hold a raffle to help offset the cost.  
We are currently looking for donations of goods and services for the raffle so we can print up tickets and sell for the trip.
If you have access to any items that you would like to donate for the raffle please email Janet Bunnell at [email protected] and copy Mort Sullivan at [email protected]
We will also be putting out sponsorship packages in the near future.  
Thank you for all you do to support our youth program.
All the best, TC
