I am proud to sit on the Board of Directors of Seacoast Youth Services and am totally in awe of the work done by this group.

John - This sounds like such a fun event and for a great cause. I hope it is a great success. Congrats for being on the Board and helping to get it out there.

Thank you, Toni! This is the big one for us and we all work so hard to make it profitable. We look forward to the support of the community to help these kids, and I try my darndest to make the public aware of all that we do. I have posted this event on WMUR TV, Seacoast Online (5 print and online news media outlets), Foster's Daily Democrat, WOKQ and WHEB radio PSA spots,, all three of my local Patch sites posted as Events and blogs...and as I'm sure you've seen, flogged it relentlessly on facebook. Having my contacts with the media is one of the reasons I was asked to join the Board, and like you, this is only one of the non-profits I work with. I believe in these causes with every fiber of my being, and most days feel like I just can't do enough. With funding cuts on both the State and Federal levels, we're constantly in "fundraiser mode" to keep these necessary programs up and running and rely on our supporters for events like this. Thank you for YOUR support!
