We experienced the setbacks resulting from Covid-19 and the year 2020 reality which did not spare the charity 2020 Vision Quest. Despite the resiliency of our team, community, and partners, it was difficult to provide the fiscal support we have managed in our prior years.
We did strengthen our mission in many ways. We’ve launched our 2021 Development Campaign to some early success. This success depends on pivotal partnerships, which is why I’m excited to share this exciting news.
We are delighted to announce Boston Billiard Club & Casino of Nashua, NH has selected 2020 Vision Quest as a supported charity for the week of April 19-25, 2021. 35% of their gaming proceeds that week will go to benefit the 2020 Vision Quest mission.
In being supported by Boston Billiard Club & Casino’s Charitable Gaming Fundraiser, we will be joining many New Hampshire charities who have in total already received more than $6 million in support since their inception. It is a tremendous honor to be once again selected and we are very proud of the partnership. In 2019, we held a series of events with them; in 2018 they hosted one of our book signings for See You At the Summit; and they have long been a valued destination. Now there’s just a little more incentive.
One of the most powerful parts of the 2020 Vision Quest mission is the response we receive from students, teachers, administrators, and even parents as a result of our school presentations. This is done in conjunction with providing crucial financial support to sight training and services through the organizations Future In Sight and Guide Dogs for the Blind. Through our hard work and tremendous community support, we have already donated $500,000 through the 2020 Vision Quest charity. After the challenges of last year, this year’s support is even more crucial and thanks to partners like Boston Billiard Club & Casino, we will steadily stride to serve the need.
We encourage you to visit them anytime at 55 Northeastern Blvd., Nashua, NH 03062-3131. If you return for our April 19 blog post, we hope to share some of the ways we’ll make our week, April 19-25 a little more powerful!
