FRAMINGHAM – Play the stock market and help the Rotary Club of Framingham.
The Rotary Club of Framingham will unveil Stock Market Madness, a fundraiser with a final prize of $1,000, in August.
Participants will pick five stocks from a given list and create their own portfolio.
There will be weekly email check-ins for eight weeks so that people are able to track the progress of their stocks and compare them to the other players.
At the end of these eight weeks, the person with the most value to their portfolio will win the $1,000 prize.
Due to the spread of COVID-19 this past year, the club’s typical fundraising activities could not be held. Rotary Club president Phil Reimann explains that the group is trying out a brand new fundraiser this August that will hopefully help to fund future projects in the community.
The participation fee is $25, and you are allowed to purchase more than one portfolio with different stock selections.
All portfolios must be purchased by July 31.
The game will begin on Monday, August 2, and run through September 24.

The Rotary Club began in Framingham in 1922, with next year marking their 100-year anniversary of service within the city. Members come from Framingham, Ashland, Hopkinton, and Holliston. The Club holds meetings regularly and primarily focuses on giving back to the
community through acts of service.
Molly Bronner, 16, will be a junior at Framingham High School. Writing and research are both passions of mine, and so I am thrilled to join the SOURCE as a summer intern.
