To The Daily Sun,

The Faith Hope and Love Foundation would like to thank the Lakes Region for your continued support over the past seven years! Time and time again we are reminded of your generosity and compassion. A recent example of support comes from two local Lakes Region women now entering their senior year at Plymouth State University.

Suzanna Derynioski, and Kelsey Piper organized a dance show fundraiser where all proceeds from the show went to the Faith Hope and Love Foundation. The mission of FHL is to bring relief to children and youth suffering from poverty, hunger or homelessness and to bring them hope through faith and love, so they may accomplish all of their dreams. All proceeds from this dance show fundraiser will be going back out directly to the community to help those in need!

Derynioski and Piper planned and implemented the fundraiser for FHL with the help of local dancers Abby Bennett, Jessie Byram, Hannah Crosby, Suzanna Derynioski, Sarah Dubois, Jacqui Galea, Becky Gregoire, Ashley (White) Halsey, Paige Halsey, Bailey Hildrith, Kaitlyn Marcella, Rene Martinez, Nicole Newman, Kelsey Piper, Laura Scribner, Hannah Sullivan, Kira Szalma, Maggie Walker, Hannah Weller, Jessica White and Jackie Wright.

We also wanted to thank the following local businesses for sponsoring the show: Charles and Donna Hildrith, Attractive Landscapes, R.M. Piper, Inc. and The Cote Corporation.

We are so blessed to live in such a great community where people pull together to help those in need! Since 2006 we have been able to give out almost $20,000 to local children and youth for basic survival and enrichment needs as well as scholarships for higher learning. With our Gowns for Girls event you our amazing community have donated hundreds of prom dresses to help girls in need be able to attend prom. Over 600 girls have attended our event and gone to prom because of your donations!

Thank you for your continued support of our organization and we look forward to seeing you all at our fashion show fundraiser on October 19th in Gilford!

The Faith Hope and Love Foundation
