Raffle for child’s playhouse



ELLSWORTH — Heart of Ellsworth is raffling off a child’s playhouse during its holiday marketplace in the former J&B Atlantic in downtown Ellsworth.

The playhouse was built by the team at Sinclair Mini-Mansions, a division of Sinclair Builders, and donated by Sinclair to the Heart of Ellsworth. The playhouse is 4 feet wide by 8 feet long and 6.5 feet from the floor to the top of the roof.

Tickets for chances to win the playhouse are $5 each, five tickets for $20 or 10 tickets for $40. “It just seemed like something fun to donate,” said Jake Sinclair, co-owner of Sinclair Builders and head of Sinclair Mini-Mansions.

Fendl called the Sinclair companies “great community members.”
