Following the guidance of New London Hospital’s (NLH) Chief Medical Officer, we have regrettably made the decision to cancel this year’s Annual Benefit, scheduled for September 17.
New Hampshire is currently experiencing substantial spread of COVID-19, with positive cases doubling weekly. We have also seen a local increase in fully vaccinated individuals testing positive. After careful review and consideration of this information, we believe canceling the event is the best decision to ensure the safety of our community and staff.
NLH’s Hematology-Oncology Infusion Services was the intended beneficiary of the event's fundraising efforts. We are hopeful to create another opportunity for our donors to support this critical NLH unit. We will explore those options in the coming months and will share details once they are available.
Individuals who have already received a Save the Date card can expect a mailed cancellation notification in the next couple of weeks.
Thank you for your patience, understanding and continued support of NLH's mission.
