Unmask the Magic

November 2, 2013

Unmask the Magic logo The Windham Endowment’s 4th annual fundraising dinner was a huge success. Our first ever masquerade dinner dance, held at Promises to Keep in Derry, delivered a magical night of delicious food, drink, dancing and entertainment.

This year, music was provided by Rico Barr & the Jump 'N' Jive Review. This renowned band played swing, blues, Latin, and pop from the 50s to the present. They had us on our feet dancing all night long!

Our games of chance were busy with hosts Cheri Maw and Rex Norman at the roulette table and Mike Morin from WZID hosting our blackjack table.

Tara Fitzgerald and Mark Wimmer each took home a $25 gift card to Lucia’s Bodega as the winners of Best Mask. Our silent auction table and gambling prizes provided wonderful winnings and great support for our causes.

Unmask the Magic was not only fun, but it was for a good cause. All proceeds from the event went to support our greatest local asset — our town! As part of our support for Culture, Education, Recreation and the Environment in Windham, proceeds from the event will benefit these funds:

Moeckel Pond — The Endowment’s Environmental Subcommittee is working with Friends of Moeckel Pond to restore Moeckel Pond and provide easy access to the pond for all residents of Windham.

Windham Historic Commission Fund — This Fund supports the needs of Searles School and Chapel; specifically, tonight’s proceeds will be applied to the 2013 Capital Campaign effort.

Education Fund and The Recreation Fund — The Endowment has made many gifts to the community during the last five years, details of which may be found in this program.

We thank everyone who attended for their continued generous support. Special thanks go to our Gold Sponsor, Edward N. Herbert Associates, and our Silver Sponsors, Black Tie Limousine Inc. and Canobie Lake Veterinary Hospital.
