Golf enthusiasts gathered on Monday, May 23, 2016 at the private Andover Country Club for either a morning or afternoon flight that was enhanced by breakfast before the round of golf, lunch in the afternoon, fancy hors d’oeuvres served on the course, and/or a gourmet dinner at sunset.
The golf tournament hosted 288 golfers on the renowned Donald Ross-designed 18-hole course, capped by the “Drive for Dignity Dinner and Auction” celebration that was attended by more than 300 people. During dinner guests enjoyed a live and silent auction with trips of a lifetime, sporting events and memorabilia, as well as many one-of-a kind experiences.
This day of golf, contests, exciting auction items, raffles and delicious meals was a rewarding opportunity for participants to strengthen business relationships and connect with others in our community to help fund the very important programs at Lazarus House.
On Sunday, October 2, 2016 more than 1,000 caring people will walk in unity to raise much needed funds for the people served by Lazarus House. Coming together for a common goal, friends, families, school and church groups, and co-workers form fundraising walk teams. Companies, local businesses and individuals can become sponsors or partners and receive benefits and exposure in the local community while making a difference.
The Hike for Hope is a 3-mile walk through the picturesque streets of Andover, MA that begins and ends at The Park at Bartlet Street. Under the direction of Dave McGillivray, President of DMSE Sports, Inc., and Race Director of the Boston Marathon, along with his team, Lazarus House will put on a first class, family and community-centered fall event.
It is a celebration of music, entertainment, food, kid-friendly activities and camaraderie that culminates in an inspirational and memorable walk in solidarity with the very people that are served through the programs at Lazarus House.
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, join us at Sharing Our Bounty on Friday, November 11, 2016 at the Andover Country Club and celebrate the many successes of our guests that are made possible by your generosity. Witness first-hand the impact of your support. During the evening, you will witness and hear from one of our guests as they share their journey toward the realization of their goals for themselves and their families.
More than just a fundraiser, our gala is an experience not to be missed. Last year’s auction was attended by more than 350 people and raised critical funds for the many Lazarus House programs to help members of our community living in poverty.
The evening features many unique silent auction packages, cocktail reception, followed by a delicious dinner and dynamic bidding during the live auction. This annual event offers a wonderful opportunity to make your contribution to Lazarus House in a meaningful and exciting way.
Lazarus House Ministries is very fortunate to receive requests from caring organizations and individuals who wish to hold a third-party event or for the use of cause-related marketing for their business.
Third-party Events are activities that are designed and run by non-staff to raise money on behalf of Lazarus House. They are typically conducted locally by individuals with minimal support from our organization. The types of activities that these local supporters conduct are quite literally endless, but some of the more commonly held events are bake sales, auctions, yard sales, restaurant events and dinner parties. Other activities also involve athletes who want to tie their training and athletic accomplishments to a fundraising goal. Third-party Fundraising events are perfect for religious groups, school or chamber groups, family, friends, organizations and corporations.
Thank you for considering hosting a Lazarus House third-party event to promote awareness and raise funds to assist people living in poverty in the Merrimack Valley.
