  • Your MASA name badge

Door Prizes

There will be drawings for lots of free prizes!  Everyone attending will be eligible for these drawings.  Must be present at the time of the drawing to win.  Drawing will be held around 7:30pm.

There will be two groups of prizes:  Group 1 - kids 14 and under, and Group 2 - everyone else.  There should be enough Group 1 prizes so that all kids in attendance will each win something.  In Group 2, we are going for "quality instead of quantity".  This will make for a more exciting prize drawing, but not everyone in Group 2 will go home with a prize.

Group 1 (Age 14 and under) Prizes will include:  

  • Provided by MASA


  • Donated by various and anonymous sources


Group 2 (Age 15 and up) Prizes will include:  

  • Donated by Hub Hobby Center, Little Canada


  • Provided by MASA


A HUGE thank you to all the businesses and individuals who donated prizes!
