The Neediest Families Prize-A-Palooza is returning to the Seaport Inn and Marina.

On December 2, the Prize-A-Palooza will have over 250 prizes being raffled off throughout the day. It will include regular table raffles, a Chinese raffle, separate big ticket item raffles and a wine raffle. There will also be a prize wheel that people can spin for a chance to win a $150 “money tree."

The Neediest Families Fund was created to make the holidays a happier time for underprivileged families in the SouthCoast area. Hundreds of thousands of dollars have been raised to be able to provide children with new toys, a new book, clothing, and a holiday meal. Last year, they helped 2,353 families and 3,249 children, with $32,246 raised.

The family-friendly event will also include face painting, local singers, DJ Joe Lima, a visit from the New Bedford princesses, a chance to take a picture with one of the Red Sox World Series trophies and so much more. I will even be celeb bartending!

The event will run from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. and is free to attend. Free food will also be provided. Raffle tickets will be sold throughout the day, for $5 for a strip of seven tickets.
