Winery Experience, 4th Annual Spring Gala

High Hopes Foundation wants to thank everyone who made the annual Spring Gala fun and successful. Guests were greeted with a complimentary pour of Labelle Wine and enjoyed an evening of games, live music, silent auction and tasty food.

High Hopes Foundation thanks Brookstone Corporation and Eastern Bank for being the Presenting Sponsors. We also thank our community supporters Harrington Flowers and Original Gourmet Food. The live music was performed by Rich Kumpuand and Robert Allwarden, and the event photographer was Vincent Aquino. Guests were treated to a wine themed photo booth where Celeste Guidice, Owner of Photographer in Studio C, took individual and group photos.

It was a special moment when Samantha was selected as the 1st High Hopes Foundation’s Hot Shot of the Month. Samantha suffered epilepsy as a small child and required brain surgery at age four to control her seizures. The surgery left her with traumatic brain injury. Samantha’s story is one of determination and hope as she will be attending college this coming fall. Each month the Foundation will be selecting a child who has faced significant challenges and who demonstrates the power of hope.

Let’s Toast for a Cause!

Join High Hopes Foundation for the 4th Annual Spring Gala. This year’s theme is Winery Experience, fitting given the event’s location – LaBelle Winery provides the perfect setting for this year’s gala. A beautiful winery in the heart of New Hampshire!

You will have the chance to catch-up with friends as well as make new friends while enjoying scrumptious food, flavorful wines, and great music. The evening also offers wine-themed games, photo booth, silent auction, cash bar and dessert.

The best part is knowing the funds raised will be giving serious and chronically ill children Hope and Joy!
