Country View in Greenland hosts fundraiser for the Hampton Academy / Winnacunnet High School (HAWHS) Alumni Association
Hampton, NH, October 9, 2015– The Country View Restaurant at 692 Portsmouth Avenue in Greenland, NH, is hosting a breakfast/lunch fundraiser for the Hampton Academy / Winnacunnet High School Alumni Association. During the week of October 19-24th the Country View will donate 10% of the value of every plate served when the diner identifies/associates himself/herself with the HAWHS Alumni Association.
“We love giving back to our community and hosting fundraisers is a great way we can do that” said Sandra Makmann, restaurateur and owner of the Country View. “We are excited to meet Seacoast residents and show them why we were voted 1st place for Best Breakfast in the Reader’s Choice Awards this year. Having the chance to help fund scholarships for Winnacunnet High School students through this partnership with the Hampton Academy / Winnacunnet High School Alumni Association means a lot to us and we are pleased to do our part.”
For the 2015/2016 academic year, the HAWHA Alumni Association is raising funds to support the HAWHS Winnacunnet High School Scholarship program, the HAWHS Military Salute Program and other activities.
Lydia MacPherson Estey, Class of 1964, brought this idea to the Board of Trustees of the association. “I thought a breakfast/lunch fundraiser would complement the evening fundraisers that we conduct” explained Lydia.
Tracy Emerton Williams, President and Class of 1981 member further explained “Since our goal is to double our current endowment – this event at the Country View seemed like a perfect fit. Working with Sandra has been such a pleasure and we encourage alumni from all classes to join us at the Country View from Monday October 19th through Saturday, October 24th. The association will staff a table at the Country View on Saturday, October 24th and hope you will come enjoy an awesome breakfast or lunch, say hello, and help contribute to our ongoing activities.
