Friends of Aine to Host 7th Annual Gala
Friends of Aine, a nonprofit organization providing peer-to-peer support services to grieving children, teens, and families, will host its 7th annual Gala at 6:30 p.m. on March 11 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Manchester Downtown
700 Elm St. The black-tie optional event will feature dinner, dancing, and a live auction. Additionally, this year will feature live entertainment by Dueling Pianos. All proceeds will benefit grief support services and programs offered by the organization. The core mission at Friends of Aine is to help children and families grieving a death navigate their path to a hopeful future. “Our Gala event is an opportunity to share our work and celebrate its positive impact with the community,” said Christine Phillips, Co-Founder, Friends of Aine.
Friends of Aine is the only nonprofit organization in New Hampshire whose sole mission is to support grieving children, teens, and families. Through a network of trained volunteer facilitators, its peer-to-peer support programs assist children and teens to share their experiences, explore topics related to grief, and learn coping strategies, so they don’t feel alone in their grief. These programs are provided at no cost to families.
The organization is inspired by Aine Phillips, who died suddenly at the age of 8, and the lack of existing child bereavement support for her surviving sister, Bella. In the Summer of 2021, the organization opened the doors of their home on Manchester’s West Side which continually helps more families in need.
Some of this year’s auction items include trips to highly desired vacation spots, and a private professional photography session, among other experiences. Click here to purchase tickets.
