An Update and a Look Ahead
Bill DaGiau

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. I won’t keep you long. I know you’re all busy with vacation fun in the sun. Since I caught you scrolling on your phone I invite you to take a look at how some of our families are doing this summer.

I would also like to invite you to join us at Flatbread on Congress Street in Portsmouth for our annual Flatbread Night to benefit Annie’s Angels, Tuesday, August 28 from 5 pm to 9 pm. It’s a great opportunity to meet us and learn more about Annie’s Angels.

If you live in or near Laconia and have a pet, please visit the Laconia Pet Center, 1343 Union Ave, Laconia. Bethany, her partner and staff are donating a portion of this month’s sales to benefit our Chris’ Pets for Vets program.
CPFV provides FREE companion animals to current and former military.
You can reach Laconia Pet Center at 603-524-8311, Monday thru Saturday 9 am to 6 pm, Friday until 8 pm; Sunday 11 am to 5 pm or visit their website at

It’s been a busy few weeks at Annie’s Angels! You can read about the Luau and Cause For Boz below. I want to take this time to tell you about a life altering event that changes people’s outlook on life. I’m talking about the annual Teddy Bear Drive. We partnered with all of you as well as Trends Gift Gallery in Exeter to collect Teddy Bears and stuffed animals from March to June. We collected 1500 total this year, which brings our overall total to 8000 Teddy Bears. We finally had the opportunity to deliver them to Boston Children’s Hospital. Brian and Audrey Cisneros, Carrie and Aaron Jones from Mojo’s as well as Keith Lemerise from Trends and I made the trip July 31. We gave away all 1500 stuffed animals in less than 1 hour. Kids, parents, doctors and nurses were overwhelmed with your generosity. Our Annie’s crew was overwhelmed by the joy we were able to bring. A joy that will be present every time that child looks at their bear. Thanks to everyone who made this possible.

Before you load up the car this summer and head off to your dream vacation please consider making your tax deductible contribution to help an Angel Family in need. Visit today!

1st Annual Beach Party Luau & Pig Roast

On July 28th Annie’s Angels held the first ever Beach Party Luau & Pig Roast. The evening began with cocktails at the cash bar and Hors ‘d oeuvres provided by the Victoria Inn. We sold raffle tickets and 50/50’s as well as Heads or Tails glow sticks. We moved into the night with music from The TonyMack Band!

During a short break we pulled raffles, the 50/50 prize, which was donated back, thank you Sandy, as well as the winner of an overnight at Victoria Inn, lunch at Victoria’s Kitchen and dinner at CR’s. To make this an authentic Luau, Tori entertained us with her amazing Hawaiian dances. We finished the night with more dancing and fun with The TonyMack Band.

Special thanks goes out to The Victoria Inn, The Victoria Kitchen, Mojo’s, The TonyMack Band, Joe & Laurel Shaw as well as Matty Shaw who held vigil all afternoon while the pig cooked!

This event was inspired by our friend Mike Twomey. Mike was a mountain of a man with the heart of a gentle giant. Mike lost his battle with cancer last year. The money raised at the Luau will benefit our Annie’s Helping Hands Oncology Program.

8th Annual Cause Fore Boz Golf Classic

Positive Thoughts for Keri, a fund of Annie’s Angels and the Cause Fore Boz Golf Classic Committee headed by Mike Dolan presented the 8th Annual Cause Fore Boz Golf Classic on Friday, August 3rd.

We would like to thank all the golfers, volunteers, auction donors, everyone who participated in any way with Cause Fore Boz. I would also like to thank the Windham Country Club for hosting Cause Fore Boz for the 8th time and making sure that we had every amenity for a successful event.
