We will once again be playing to support Operation Delta Dog, a local Massachusetts charity. And as always, admission is FREE! We’ll post updates over the next month leading up to game day with information about the event and weekend including specifics about entertainment and game details. Additionally, we’ll have lots of great information about ways to support the charity! Stay Tuned!

TPSF and Operation Delta Dog
For the second year in a row, Three Piece Suit Football is supporting Operation Delta Dog (OpDD)! As a registered 501c3 non-profit organization, OpDD’s mission is to help rescue homeless/shelter dogs and train them to be service animals for Veterans in need! OpDD works locally with Massachusetts Veterans to meet their needs and match them with a dog that will aid in helping the Veteran to cope with a variety of issues including PTSD, TBI (traumatic brain injury), and other challenges.
Last year TPSF raised over $4000 for Operation Delta Dog! There are several ways to support this great cause at this year’s Three Piece Suit Football Game, so help us out-do ourselves!
50/50 Charity Raffle:
Leading up to and during the game, TPSF players and members are selling $10 50/50 Raffle tickets to support the Charity. For each $10 ticket purchased online (see secure PayPal link below), a 50/50 ticket will be filled out in your name! If you’re buying tickets to support a particular player/member, please note that in the message box upon check-out. Following transaction completion, an email verification of your donation will be sent.
IMPORTANT: You DO NOT have to be present at the 50/50 Raffle drawing to win (Drawing held at the After Party at The Last Drop). We will have your email/phone contact when you purchase tickets and will notify you if you win and are not present at the event!
Important Info for potential donors:
- What is a 50/50 Raffle? A “50/50 Raffle” is when half of the money will go to support the charity (in this case, Operation Delta Dog) and the other half will go to the winner of the drawing.
- Donors do NOT have to be present to win.
- We haven’t set a cap on the number of tickets sold, but last year we sold over 300 with the winner taking home over $1,000 in CASH.
Gift Card and Prize Charity Raffle Following Event:
At the After-Party following the TPSF event on 10/8/16, we will be selling raffle tickets and drawing several winners for many great prizes and gift cards. This all happens at The Last Drop, and 100% of these ticket sales will go to support Operation Delta Dog! CLICK HERE to see our raffle prizes!
