LACONIA — The WLNH Children's Auction's disbursement committee will be hosting a public forum on Friday, July 19, to explain to local non-profit organizations how funds will be distributed from the coming auction, held in December.
Chris Boothby, co-chair of the disbursement committee, said both organizations that had previously received auction funds as well as groups that would like to benefit from the annual fund raising event are welcome to attend. The forum will be held at 10 a.m. at the Laconia branch of the Meredith Village Savings Bank, located at 379 South Main Street.
At the forum, the disbursement committee will explain the review and distribution process. Boothby said the committee will explain the various categories that applicants fall into, including those that address immediate needs and others that seek to prevent poverty. The deadline to apply for funds for this year's auction will be October 31.
