2019 Talent Show Honorary Chair

Owner, The Hotel Concord

I DON’T THINK THERE IS ANY MORE COMPELLING NEED IN SOCIETY TODAY THAN TO ASSIST THOSE LESS FORTUNATE IN HAVING A PLACE THEY CAN CALL “HOME”—A PLACE TO GO AT THE END OF EACH DAY, WAKE UP AT IN THE MORNING, AND WHERE WE CAN FEEL CONTENT AND SECURE. I SIMPLY CAN’T IMAGINE HOW DIFFICULT IT MUST BE TO START ONE’S DAY—AND NOT KNOW WHERE THAT DAY IS GOING TO END…

Bank of New Hampshire Stage

Our inaugural Talent Show in October 2019 was such a huge success, we are already preparing for 2020! 2019 featured voices singing higher than the dog tricks, sizzling dance moves, and chills-inducing vocal performances  – all from local area residents who donated their time and talent to raise money for CCEH.

By purchasing a ticket to the Talent Show, guests are supporting CCEH as well as the arts – encouraging creativity and artistic expression right here in downtown Concord.

The night includes food from local restaurants, a cash bar, and plenty of fun games including Buy a Vote, Heads or Tails, and 50/50. All proceeds to benefit CCEH.
