The Great VOH Bake Off!!

Voices of Hope will be hosting the first annual Bake Off Challenge on February 23rd from 2:00-5:00pm! We invite any non-professional bakers to bring their best baked goods to submit in any of these three categories : Cookies, Cupcakes, and Pies. 

Baked goods will be judged by celebrity judges and awards will be presented for Presentation, Taste, and Creativity. We will also be presenting People's Choice Awards for each category based on voting by the attendees. Lastly, we will have a special award category for baked goods for special dietary needs (keto/gluten free/vegan friendly). 

The bakers will pay a $5 entry fee for each baked good they submit (multiple submissions welcome), and attendees will pay the same for tastings.  In addition to sating our sweet tooth, this event (as always) will support the Termeer Center!  So come join us, won't you?

To enter, contact Lauri Kurdziel at kurdziell@merrimack.edu

Our Decade of Giving!

A word from Greg:

On behalf of all the members of Voices of Hope I would like to thank everyone who supported us over these past 10 years.  This year's donation of $80,500 brings us to a donated total of $681,000, and puts us past the milestone of over half a million dollars given directly to the Termeer Center. 

Without your support we would not be able to continue on this journey and we truly appreciate it.  I know there are many philanthropic options in the world, and I am honored that you choose to support Voices of Hope.  Thank you and here's to an amazing 2019!  I hope to see you at the show!
