Almost a quarter of a million dollars has been raised in the past 13 years

at the Childhood Cancer Lifeline Event at Pats Peak.
Henniker, NH, March 15, 2013 — The Childhood Cancer Lifeline 2013 event at Pats Peak raised nearly $30,000, insuring much needed support for NH families who have a child battling cancer.

The auction and dinner was a large portion of the money raised along with the generosity of the Pats Peak skier/riders that donated at the cashier locations through the donation request campaign. Visitors to The Peak, along with Peak employees, papered the lodges with well wishes, collectively donating over $8,800. Pats Peak provided a cash donation and also included the Childhood Cancer Lifeline in their March Online Only Specials for a total of a $4,460 donation.

The Childhood Cancer Lifeline thanks October Sons for their talent and commitment to families battling cancer all weekend, and for organizing and lining up other performers for Sunday’s “We Will, We Will ROCK Cancer”.

Sylvia Pelletier, President of the Childhood Cancer Lifeline of NH says: “Each year we are amazed, and touched by the outpouring of generosity from the community, and for the enthusiastic support of everyone at Pats Peak. The Peak has truly embraced families battling cancer through the Lifeline, with a compassion and energy that is awe-inspiring. Each weekend we witness gifts from the heart, given freely to help families in crisis. The funds raised allow us to meet very real, practical needs of families living with childhood cancer. It allows us to put gas in the cars of families making the trek to treatment, or to pay a bill while a parent is out of work to care for their child. To everyone who participated, we are grateful. You are truly a part of the “lifeline” we offer families.”

The Childhood Cancer Lifeline has a great group of board members, and volunteers who work very hard to organize this event. They would like to thank: Rita Blanchard, Sharon DeMarco, Karen Kana, Eren Martin, and Amy Patenaude for their assistance requesting donations, Tom Fisher for serving as auctioneer, and Verlin Gokey and Cameron Pelletier for acting as auction processors.
