19 Oct 2021 BeachaPalooza Event
On Wednesday, September 15th the Center Harbor Inn partnered with representatives from a local charity to host the first ever BeachaPalooza. The end of summer beach bash was designed to benefit a charity that is near and dear to us, the Greater Lakes Region Children’s Auction. The team set a commitment that ALL proceeds raised throughout the event would be donated to the non-profit organization, benefitting local children and families in need.
The beach party was held from 3pm – 8pm on the shores of beautiful Lake Winnipesaukee at the Center Harbor Inn’s private beach. During the party the team held a raffle and friendly competition of cornhole with great prizes such as gift cards to some of our favorite local businesses: Mind & Body Oasis, Polished and Proper Barbershop, Hannaford Supermarket and Path Resorts. There was a delicious food offering provided by the Canoe Restaurant and Tavern and a generous dessert display compliments of Gusto Italian Café which was enjoyed by all.
The weather leading up to the event was uncertain, but the sky cleared just in time for the party to begin. Attendees enjoyed live music performed by Matt the Sax, setting the perfect vibe for the beach bash and there was also a cash bar held by the Canoe Restaurant offering some of our favorite summer beverages.
All proceeds from the event have been donated to the Greater Lakes Region Children’s Auction and between the ticket sales for the event and our unique BeachaPalooza Overnight Promotion, the team raised over $5,344 for this year’s brand-new fundraiser. The Greater Lakes Region Children’s Auction is a charitable fund with the mission of helping the under resourced children and families within the Lakes Region. Many local community organizations within central New Hampshire benefit from the hard work that comes from the annual auction event.
