October 31, 2013


MANCHESTER - The Millyard Museum will once again be abuzz as Girls at Work brings its 4th annual MusicFest fundraiser to the site on Sat., November 2. Promising great food, great prizes, and great fun, the New Boston-based nonprofit is gearing up for another night of food, music and fun with all money raised going to support programming for Girls at Work. MusicFest will take place at the Millyard Museum, 200 Bedford St., Manchester, from 6:00–9:00 p.m.

Girls at Work Inc. is a nonprofit organization based in New Boston, that empowers girls at risk in New Hampshire and throughout New England by teaching them woodworking skills and the safe use of power tools within a team setting. These activities help participants discover their inner tools of strength and courage while lifting their spirits.

“We are really excited about MusicFest this year. We feel each year we improve upon the next and I can’t help but feel that this year’s event is going to be something special,” says Elaine Hamel, executive director of Girls at Work. “We have expanded our food offerings, ramped up our raffles, booked amazing musicians, and added to the flow and excitement of the entire night. We want this year’s event to be a huge success because we need the financial support as we undertake our new venture into afterschool programming.”

A few of the items on the agenda for the evening are a cork pull, when participants buy a cork that wins a bottle of wine; heads-or-tails, where buying in means a chance at one of two iPads; a chance at winning one of two bundles of 25 bottles of wine; and raffles on the half-hours of tables constructed out of hundred-year-old barn board by Hamel herself along with a group of volunteers.

Tickets for MusicFest are $50.00, and can be purchased online at
