To The Daily Sun,
As recipients of funds from the Children's Auction of the Lakes Region we feel that it is important to support Patrick's Pub Pub Mania, an event that raises so much money for the auction in our community.
The Santa Fund of the Greater Lakes Region is partnering with Real Life Training and The Downtown Gym to form "Real Downtown Santas" — a Pub Mania team for the 2016 Pub Mania event.
The Santa Fund of the Greater Lakes Region operates year-round to help children and families. Last year we provided warm clothes, coats, boots and snow pants during the winter months to more than 600 children. We have provided food gift certificates and gas cards to families who have children with medical conditions. We have provided sports items for youth and teens so that they could be a part of a team or go to a dance class. We have sponsored children with special needs to be able to attend summer camp as well as awarded over 40 scholarships annually to students to attend Shooter's Gold Basketball Camp. We have supplied school supplies for children. We have been able to do all these things and more with generous donations. Our program is non-profit and funded fully by donations and funds received by the Children's Auction.
The Downtown Gym is a newly opened wellness center in downtown Laconia that provides a community-based environment that has something to offer for all levels of health and wellness. Their mission statement reflects their intent on engaging the individual as a whole, while encouraging and setting by example, the importance of family, education and community service.
Our other partner is Real Life Training, providing personal and small group training and coaching. Owner Trish Tryon's goal is to provide a comprehensive and detail oriented personal health and fitness program to her clients.
We have begun our fundraising efforts for the Pub Mania event by participating in the weekly Patrick's Shuffle. We are working on other ideas for fundraising events over the course of the next few months leading up to the actual Pub Mania event which is scheduled for Dec. 8-9.
