Meredith Bay event aims to raise $150,000 for Make-A-Wish New Hampshire
Looking for another day out on Lake Winnipesaukee? The organizers of “Rafting for Wishes” are raising money for Make-A-Wish New Hampshire in Meredith Bay this week.
Jason Perry and Jason Tremblay will spend 44 hours straight on a raft in Lake Winnipesaukee from Wednesday to Friday. Up to 20 rafts will join them on the lake, and each raft will be occupied in shifts by at least 15 team members. Each team member is tasked with raising $300 each, and the overall event has a fundraising goal of $150,000. More than 50 New Hampshire children are on the wait list for their Make-A-Wish requests.
Live music, fireworks, a movie and other festivities will be ongoing throughout the two-day event.
The opening ceremony is Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. at Heskey Park on Meredith Bay, and the event will end Friday by 12 p.m.
