Lazarus House has been rated a Four Star Charity by Charity Navigator. Awarded for sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency, less than 1% of the annual budget comes from government funding.
On Monday, July 17, more than 200 golfers came together for an entertaining day of golf, raffles, exciting auction items and first class meals at Andover Country Club, widely recognized as one of New England’s finest private courses.
Morning golfers enjoyed breakfast before the round and lunch after. Afternoon golfers gathered for lunch before the round and delighted in mouthwatering hors d’oeuvres on the course. The day is capped off with the Drive for Dignity Dinner and Auction. Attended by more than 350 golfers and non-golfers, attendees of the Drive for Dignity Dinner and Auction participated in live and silent auctions.
The Drive for Dignity event is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to strengthen business relationships and connect with other C-Level executives in the community in a relaxed setting while helping to fund critical Lazarus House programs.
THANK YOU to all of our golfers, sponsors, volunteers, dinner guests, and auction bidders. Stay tuned for information regarding next year’s tournament!
Nearly 1,000 thoughtful people will Hike for Hope on Sunday, October 1 to raise much needed funds for people in our community in dire need. The young and the young at heart will walk 3 miles together with friends, families, co-workers, schools, civic and faith based organizations through the picturesque streets of Andover, Mass.
Under the direction of Dave McGillivray, President, DMSE Sports, Inc. and Race Director of the Boston Marathon, this family and community-focused fall event is a celebration of music, entertainment, food and the goodness of people coming together to help those in need among us.
Partnership and sponsorship opportunities are available for companies, local businesses and individuals looking to receive positive exposure in the Merrimack Valley while team building and making a real difference in people’s lives.
On Saturday, November 18, we will give thanks by sharing and celebrating the life-changing achievements your generosity has made possible by hosting the Sharing Our Bounty Gala. Witness the successes up close when a guest shares their story of how their lives were enriched by Lazarus House.
Sharing Our Bounty was attended by more than 400 people last year and generated vital support for Lazarus House programs which create hope and measurable successes. Last year Rob Surrette, an official Disney Fine Artist, mesmerized the audience by speed-painting a Saint Teresa of Calcutta print while playing original music he wrote in the background. It was an incredibly powerful performance no one in attendance is soon to forget.
The evening features exciting and rare live and silent auction items, a cocktail reception followed by dinner and, more importantly, the opportunity to make an impact on the lives of people served by Lazarus House.
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.
