Virtual Passion for Caring!

Granite VNA’s annual fund raiser Passion for Caring event is virtual and will be held Wednesday, June 9 to June 16 this year! 

For 11 years the event has been in-person and featured music, refreshments, and a silent auction to support our mission. In response to the pandemic, reimagining Passion for Caring from a one-night event to a longer virtual campaign provides an opportunity for people and businesses to participate from anywhere in the state and beyond. 

The 2021 Passion for Caring campaign offers an opportunity to support Granite VNA by bidding on unique items during the online auction. Items include overnight stays at boutique hotels, fine dining experiences, gift cards to New Hampshire restaurants, retailers and destinations, and locally-made goods, including jewelry, clothing, and home accents. 

The auction opens at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, June 9 and will remain open until 12 p.m. on Wednesday, June 16. People are invited to view auction items and bid through the web site from the comfort and safety of home beginning June 9. The web site will be continually updated with submitted bids, and winning bidders will be notified of results on the afternoon of June 16. 

Granite VNA will also honor the Kay Sidway Award recipient and the Donor Recognition Award recipient during the weeklong event. 

All proceeds from the event benefit Granite VNA. Donations in lieu of tickets will also be accepted. When you make a donation or bid on an auction item, you are helping to ensure that we have the resources to care for all in our community regardless of ability to pay. Thank you for your support!
