CASA Cares: An Evening of Giving for New Hampshire’s Children, held on Friday, May 6, 2022, raised $410,000!
Presented by Novocure, the event was held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Manchester Downtown. This year, CASA Cares featured a live auction, wine and spirits grab, jewelry raffle, heavy hors d’oeuvres, and dessert. There was also a virtual option for those who wished to view from home.
“The overwhelming support that was shown at this event simply reinforced for me that so many folks from across the state truly understand and are deeply committed to CASA’s life-changing work,” said Marcia Sink, President and CEO of CASA of New Hampshire.
The evening’s speakers included Sink, Amy Coveno, CASA of New Hampshire’s Board of Directors Co-Chair, and Mike Ambrogi, CASA of New Hampshire Board Member and Senior Technology Fellow at Novocure. Guests also heard from U.S. Rep. Chris Pappas and Gov. Chris Sununu who both shared powerful remarks about the valuable impact CASA has on children and youth throughout the Granite State.
Auctioneer Mark Fodero entertained the crowd as they bid on live auction items including vacation packages, Red Sox tickets, and camping equipment from NEMO. There was also an opportunity to bid on a virtual Happy Half Hour with Seth Meyers and personalized signed copies of his new book, “I’m Not Scared, YOU’RE Scared.”
Audience members then viewed a video highlighting three stories including a reunification, an adoption, and a former CASA child’s lasting bond with her CASA volunteer advocate. One of the featured advocates in the video, Marty Cloran, attended the event and received a standing ovation as he took the stage with the two now-grown adults he advocated for years ago.
Thank you to all those who supported this wonderful event!
