The Board of Governors for the 61st Annual Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl has established two raffles and a social media site to help raise funds for the game and assist the three Shriners Hospitals in Boston, Springfield and Montreal. 

The Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl has raised over $5,000,000 for the cause over its first 60 years.

The first raffle is for two sets of four tickets to see the New England Patriots. The opponent for the first game will be announced shortly after the NFL releases the 2014 schedule. These tickets are located in Section 128 row 15 seats 1 to 4. The second set is to the New England/Denver Broncos game with date and time to be released. The seats to this game will located in the lower bowl level and will include VIP Parking. 

The second raffle will be for two tickets to the Red Sox/New York Yankees game on Sept. 26 at 7:10 p.m. These seats are located in Section 99 Row EE Seats 1-2, which are located near Canvas Alley (where the ground crew sits during the game). These tickets include admission into the Red Sox Royal Rooters Club, a 6,000 square foot pub located under the bleachers at Fenway that is open two hours before the game. 

The third fundraiser is a social media application called Friends asking Friends, which is set up on the Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl web site (www.maplesugarbowl.com). Once there, click on the donation tab and follow the prompts to support the success of the game. 

Individuals can also click on the Purchase Ad In Program tab and place an ad in our day-of-game program. This program will be available to over 7,000 people who attend the parade and/or game.

The Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl Game is sponsored by the three Shrine Temples of Vermont and New Hampshire; Cairo and Mt Sinai from Vermont, and Bektash representing New Hampshire. The Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl is the second oldest game and the third largest profit producer of all the Shrine games held around the country each year.
