Corner the Market With ‘City of Utica Monopoly’
Rich Uncle Pennybags is eyeing some property in the city of Utica.
A unique fundraiser is underway for the Abraham House, a nonprofit which provides care for terminally-ill individuals seeking comfort care at the end of life, and who need around the clock care. Those services are provided to patients free of charge.
Five-thousand 'City of Utica MONOPOLY' games are being produced by toy and game maker Hasbro. They're being sold for $50 each, with 100-percent of the money raised going to Abraham House.
Jeana Nicotera and Gina Ciaccia joined The Keeler Show recently to talk about 'Utica Monopoly':
Among the game pieces publicly revealed are Utica College mascot Trax and Utica Comets mascot Audie. Properties include the Adirondack Bank Center, the Utica Comets, a banking district that features Bank of Utica, Adirondack Bank and First Source Federal Credit Union. Other locations include The Stanley, the Boilermaker, Utica's Brewery District featuring the Brewery, Lukin's and Celtic Harp, a restaurant district with Danielle's at Valley View and Delmonico's Steakhouse. Plus other local staples like the Utica Zoo, Utica Coffee, Parkway Drugs and Chanatry's, among others.
Jeana and Gina noted there were still a few sponsorship opportunities available, as of their visit to the show.
'Utica MONOPOLY' boards can be purchased through the Abraham House website, and will be available in November. To avoid the $14.99 shipping fee, there is a local pick up available through Abraham House.
