Successful Starry Starry Night

On Saturday, April 29th, City Year New Hampshire welcomed more than 250 business and civic leaders and citizens from across the state, and raised more than $200,000 at Starry Starry Night at the Wentworth by the Sea hotel! It was a delightful event with guests able to meet and interact with the 50 young, inspiring corps members who serve in 6 elementary schools across the city of Manchester.

This gala is our largest fundraiser each year, and this year has marked our 14th successful gala! The program at this year’s event included a live band, black tie dinner, silent auction , and live auction emceed by KISS 108 FM’s Billy Costa.

Congratulations go to Tom and Lisa Raffio, our honoree’s of the Lifetime of Service Award at this year’s event.

Thank you to everyone who helped to make this event a great success, in particular Bain Capital, our presenting sponsor.
