Humane Society Brings Back Their In Person Event, Raising Over $133,000

(NASHUA, N.H., June 10, 2021) – On Sunday June 6th the Humane Society for Greater Nashua (HSFN) held their annual dinner and auction event in person at Alpine Grove in Hollis NH. The event began with a transport of Southern State puppies joining guests during cocktail hour, and then transitioned into the ballroom for a wonderful dinner and live auction.

The Humane Society for Greater Nashua held this event virtually in 2020 due to the global pandemic, however this year they were confident that it was safe to gather as a community once again. The theme of this year’s event was ‘From Near and Far; Transforming Tomorrow’ and was all centered around the lifesaving work HSFN does, and how it truly transforms the lives of the pets and people in the community.

The venue, Alpine Grove, did a tremendous job hosting the Humane Society and their guests for this event. Another key player was Malloy Events, who lit up the ballroom with beautiful up lighting and provided high quality audio visual for the event. The evening gave guests the opportunity to eat, drink and enjoy hearing stories of how lives were saved thanks to the hard work and dedication of HSFN.

“It was a wonderful opportunity to get reacquainted with our supporters after seemingly yearlong isolation”– Chuck Mattia, Director of Partnerships and Corporate Giving.

Guests enjoyed the evening and were incredibly generous. The Humane Society for Greater Nashua was given a matching gift of $20,000 for the fund-a-need portion of the evening. Guests quickly rose to the occasion and between donations made that evening, and additional donations made online HSFN quickly surpassed their goal.

Money raised for the fund-a-need will go towards supporting the Abby Fund for special surgeries and treatments, as well as for expenses related to the transport program. Both of these programs save many lives each year. The event raised over $133,000 making this year’s event the most successful fundraising gala the organization has had yet!
