We are coming up on the end of another year and it's time to kick back and celebrate this year's accomplishments.  Instead of another boring lunch meeting, why not join 1,000 other people at the Derryfield Country Club on Friday, December 22nd for the 13th Annual Ugly Christmas Sweater Party?

According to their webpage, this charitable event has raised over $100,000 in the past seven years which is wicked impressive considering all funds come directly from tickets and sponsors. 

If you're looking for a daytime activity, the Friends of the Manchester Animal Shelter are hosting their first annual Ugly Sweater 5k Run to support the Manchester Animal Shelter Saturday, December 16th.  

The run starts and finishes at The Foundry Restaurant, 50 Commercial St, Manchester, and includes a finish line picture with Santa.  

Registration Fees: 
Adults (21+) - $25 
Youth and Adults (13 to 20) - $25 
Youth (12 and under) - FREE 

This is a family-friendly event with music, food, and Santa.

You can register online or at the event.  Event day registration starts at 8:00 AM and the run begins at 9:00 AM.  The first 75 registered individual participants 21+ plus will receive Tito’s Handmade Vodka Ugly Sweaters.  

100% of the proceeds will be donated to the shelter.
