Annual golf tournament has raised nearly $700,000 over the past 13 years for the NH Food Bank
Manchester, NH – WBS-HUB raised over $91,000 to support the New Hampshire Food Bank’s efforts to fight hunger in New Hampshire during the Annual Harvest Golf Classic last month. The 13th annual golf tournament raised more than $91,000, which equates to more than 183,706 meals for the hungry. The Harvest Golf Classic took place during Hunger Action Month, a month-long awareness campaign urging residents and businesses to take action in the fight against hunger.
“The support from WBS-HUB and the Harvest Golf Classic continues to make a valuable impact on our mission to help those in need in New Hampshire,” said Eileen Liponis, Executive Director, New Hampshire Food Bank, a program of Catholic Charities New Hampshire. “With the money raised during this year’s tournament, we will be able to deliver more than 183,706 meals to the estimated 7% of all New Hampshire residents, including approximately 9.5% of children, who struggle with food insecurity in New Hampshire. We are very grateful to WBS-HUB for their continued support and to all of the participants in this year’s tournament. Thank you for helping us combat hunger in the Granite State.”
A total of 122 WBS-HUB golfers and New Hampshire Food Bank supporters participated in the WBS-HUB Annual Harvest Golf Classic, which took place Monday, September 12, at the Manchester Country Club. The top prize was $800 worth of pro-shop credit.
“We are extremely proud to have raised more than $700,000 over the past 13 years through the Harvest Golf Classic in support of the New Hampshire Food Bank, which performs incredible work to fight hunger statewide,” said David Larrivee, Principal, WBS-HUB. “A huge thank you goes out to our carrier partners, clients and everyone for their generous contributions for making this year’s tournament a success!”
This support comes at a critical time as the New Hampshire Food Bank is currently purchasing 100% more food compared to this same time last year. In 2021, the New Hampshire Food Bank distributed more than 17 million pounds of food to more than 400 nonprofit food agencies in all corners of New Hampshire. The New Hampshire Food Bank expects to continue increasing food distribution to meet the need.
