Annual Charity Event Exceeds Expectations
submitted by Brenda Collins, Greater Hudson Chamber
The Greater Hudson Chamber of Commerce
(GHCC) held its Annual Holiday Auction for Charity on
December 8 at King’s Court & Banquet Hall, 222 Central
Street in Hudson, raising $6,387 for the St. Vincent de
Paul Society. Special thanks to all those who donated
and participated in the auction; as a result, the auction
raised $5,387—the additional $1,000 was a monetary
donation generously gifted by PSNH. During the last
11 years of holding the Annual Auction, the GHCC
members and local businesses have been able to raise
an outstanding $33,400 for charity.
