About HABA

This annual event has been a long-standing fundraiser for the Holliston Athletic Boosters Association and all of the sports programs that HABA supports, as well as for our Holliston Lions Club partner.  HABA asks that each HHS sport buy at least one square.  in past years HABA teams have won.  Winnings are donated to each team to be used at their discretion.  Winter track won twice in the same game and bought an indoor finish line timing system!

Here's how it works:

A board is created and the squares are identified by pairing the letters of the vertical column (representing NFC teams) with the letters of the horizontal column (representing AFC teams).
Payouts are $500 at the end of the first quarter, $750 at halftime, $500 at the end of the third, and $1,500 at final score.

Squares are $100 each, and may be purchase by individuals or by any number of people in a group (with a single point person.) Join forces within your HHS team, book club, neighborhood, adult sports teams, work friends—anyone 18 and over may participate.

A check for $100 should be made payable to "Holliston Lions Club" and may be turned in to Sheila, or to any HABA board member or team liaison. (Please visit our web site for liaison information.)  Squares cannot be saved in your name - No check, no square. Checks should be provided as soon as possible, but must be received prior to the February 7 game.

Squares can be purchased by emailing Sheila Datz at sheiladatz@gmail.com, or by texting Sheila at 508-735-4081. 

On game day, a drawing will be conducted at 2:00pm at Jasper Hill Cafe to fill in the the board. Participants are welcome to attend, watch the numbers fill in, and share appetizers that will be provided.  Once the board is complete a photo will be posted on the HABA website and emailed to all liaisons.
