---- — Help Us Help Others GALA
This letter of thanks is directed to the many people who made our second annual Help Us Help Others GALA another successful event. On behalf of Camille Gaydos, Chair, we report that over $10,000 was raised in the form of ticket sales, donations and Silent Auction bids for three non-profit organizations; Common Ground Ministries in Haverhill, MA, the VNA Maternal Child Health Program in the Manchester, NH area and the Mission School of Hope in Cameroon, Africa. Each organization was represented at our GALA to receive a donation from the proceeds of the event. Because of many generous people, less fortunate neighbors in our midst, and across the globe, are able to gratefully accept shelter, food, clothing, basic necessities and advancing medical technologies.
We are so proud of our sponsors, who helped make a difference in the lives of so many. Special thanks to Rue and Phil at Zorvino Vineyards for hosting and preparing the delicious food for the event. Mitch Dugan, The Music Man DJ Service donated his company’s services for the evening as did The Green Griffin of Kingston who provided the beautiful floral arrangements. David Spaulding donated his time and equipment for the sound, and Amy Brognabaione did a fabulous job as our evening’s photographer. A big thank you to Hampstead Print and Copy for assistance with the invitations and a debt of gratitude is extended to our very talented musicians and singers; Judy Hunter, pianist, Sing Forth quartet and The Mary Bliven Band - again all donating their time and talent for this worthy endeavor. We would not have been as successful without the generous contributions of our Silent Auction sponsors, we thank you all.
