United Way of Greater Nashua recently welcomed donors, volunteers and others for a “beach party” at Nashua Country Club to thank them for their support during the last year.

The evening featured awards for leading corporate and individual supporters, a testimonial from a graduate of the Anne-Marie House transitional housing program and a Caribbean cruise giveaway courtesy of Celebrity Cruises.

Among those who received recognition were:

BAE Systems, recipient of the Give Award for outstanding corporate support.

Dartmouth-Hitchock, recipient of the Give Award for an outstanding workplace giving campaign.

Mary Jordan, executive director of the Adult Learning Center, winner of the Advocate Award for helping individuals and families become self-
sufficient through quality education programs and supportive child care.

Jamie Pappas, of Monarch Instrument, and Rod Hansen Jr., of Amherst, retired from Anheuser-Busch, co-recipients of the Volunteer Award for their dedication and commitment.

Nashua Community College, winner of the Live United Award, which recognizes one employer for its efforts to support Greater Nashua by giving, advocating and volunteering.

Chrissie Baker, a home health care worker and mother, spoke about how the transitional housing program at Anne-Marie House in Hudson helped her become financially stable and provide a better life for her 6-year-old son. United Way of Greater Nashua helped establish Anne-Marie House several years ago and in 2013 awarded a new three-year round of funding for the program.

To cap off the evening, representatives of Celebrity Cruises and AAA of Northern New England joined United Way President Paul Hebert and board of directors Chairwoman Lucille Jordan to draw the winner of the donor incentive raffle prize of a Caribbean cruise for two. More than 400 people qualified for the drawing by contributing at least $156 to the 2013-14 campaign.

The winner was Donna Marceau, WorkReadyNH director at Nashua Community College.

The event was made possible by year-round sponsorships from BAE Systems, Cityside Management, Etchstone Properties, MESH Interactive Agency, Nashua Community College and St. Joseph Healthcare, plus an event sponsorship from Public Service of New Hampshire. An in-kind donation from That Event Co. of Concord transformed the ballroom to the “United Way Beach Club” for the night.
