Potter’s Bowl in Derry raises thousands for Community Caregivers
The large turnout for the event at Promises to Keep on Route 28 helped Community Caregivers surpass its fundraising goal of $10,000, said Julie Levesque, office manager.
Through ticket sales, a raffle and silent auction, donations exceeded $11,000, Levesque said.
A 50/50 raffle was featured again as an added fundraiser, along with a silent auction.
“I thought it was a great format, a lot of fun and a perfect way to raise a lot of money,” she said.
Louise Duys said she has been attending the event for several years but didn’t go last year; she said she was glad she came back this year.
Tanuma took time to say goodbye to guests as she moved around the large room. She said she sees the same group of dedicated donors turn out for the Potter’s Bowl year after year.
Founded in 1983, Community Caregivers helps the elderly, disabled, and chronically and temporarily ill stay in their own homes and communities as long as possible.
