The Hanover Inn is committed to doing our part to support the many organizations and charitable events that ask for our help. The annual donations we provide are too numerous to mention but we do all we can to offer our help with fundraising efforts by so many worthy charitable organizations in the Upper Valley. Below are a few of the organizations and events we have sponsored throughout the years.
The Hanover Inn is committed to those in need today so that they can receive exceptional patient care, as well as those who will need help in the future by supporting the research by the dedicated professionals of the Norris Cotton Cancer Center. The Annual Prouty Century Ride & Challenge Walk is the signature event of the Friends of Norris Cotton Cancer Center, a group of caring people dedicated to supporting cancer research, patient services and community outreach at Norris Cancer Center at Dartmouth.
The Hanover Inn is honored to participate in the celebration. In the past, we have prepared and served a delicious lunch for more than 250 veterans, staff and supporters of the New Hampshire Veterans Home in Tilton, New Hampshire.
In 2004, a 4-year-old cancer patient named Alexandra Scott opened a lemonade stand in her front yard with the goal of raising money to find a cure for all kids with cancer. As word of Alex's fundraising spread, donations poured in from around the world. From this brave and pure effort to help others, Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation was formed to achieve two important goals: Raising money and awareness for pediatric cancer causes, primarily research into new cures and treatments; and encouraging and educating others, especially children, to raise money for Alex's Lemonade Stand for childhood cancer.
Jacob Beard, a cancer survivor, is one of the children inspired by the example of Alex. He has asked us to support his efforts to assist other cancer survivors. Jacob was diagnosed with a spinal tumor when he was just 2 years old. Now, Jacob is cancer free; his lemonade stand raised an astonishing $12,000 last year! We are thrilled to be a part of this year's efforts. Last year, we helped Jacob raise more then $3,000 in just one day by selling Country Time Lemonade, fruit kabobs and having visitors try their luck at the duck pond.
