The Limited First Edition City of Utica Monopoly game was released last year, and there is a limited number still available.

Proceeds from the Utica Monopoly game help the Abraham House provide continued care for the terminally ill in CNY, while also gifting a piece of Utica history that highlights our fantastic city!

Abraham's House
Abraham's House

Hasbro and Parker Brothers only produce about seven custom game boards per year nationwide. Jeana Nicotera, Brand Consultant with the Cooley Group, Gina Ciaccia, Executive Director of the Abraham House, and Gail Manfredo brought this project to life.

It took only 3 and a half weeks to sell the properties as the Monopoly madness was contagious! All those involved paid for being involved in this project which covered the production costs for 5,000 boards, which Abraham House can now sell as a fundraiser.

Check out how incredibly localized the game is.
