Each year, the Club gives $25,000 in cash prizes as part of its Pot of Gold Raffle, the biggest fundraiser of the year for the Club! Tickets cost $100 and can be split among family and friends.
100% of raffle proceeds directly support the activities & programs of the James L. McKeown Boys & Girls Club, where it costs just $25 for children & teens to join and participate.
It pays to buy early so that you have a chance at the Early Bird Drawing on December 21st. Those two winners will also go “back in the bin” for the Grand Prize Drawing on March 16, 2019.
Please note that in observance of Veterans Day, all Club programs and activities will be closed/cancelled on Monday, November 12, 2018.

Whether you’re hosting Thanksgiving dinner or responsible for bringing a dessert, this is a quick and easy way to get dessert out of the way. (And, support our swim team at the same time!) Please ask your family, friends, and neighbors if they would like to buy pies and cakes for Thanksgiving from Spinelli’s!

Get excited because basketball season is right around the corner!
James L. McKeown Boys & Girls Club of Woburn offers fun, intramural, instructional basketball leagues for youth in grades 2-8 each winter. The cost to participate is $25 and all participants must be Club members. Each team practices for one hour each week and plays one game each week. The season takes place from late November/early December through February vacation.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: We are seeking volunteer coaches. If you are interested and/or able to volunteer to coach a basketball team this winter, please contact Dave Maestri, Health & Recreation Director. The number of coaches who volunteer determines the number of players we can accept into the league. Without enough volunteers, many youth will not be able to participate.
