LACONIA —The Greater Lakes Region Children’s Auction today announced that a collaborative fundraising event held in Center Harbor recently raised $7,234 for the Greater Lakes Region Children’s Auction.

“We are pleased to be able to support an organization that provides basic needs to area children,” said Luke Dupuis, owner at Home Comfort. “The need is still tremendous in the Greater Lakes Region area, but not greater than the hearts, commitment, and passion within our community—the real heroes who make the magic happen every year. Together, we help so many, and we are proud to continue making a difference within the greater Lakes Region.”
Over the past four decades, the Greater Lakes Region Children’s Auction has distributed over $7.5 million dollars to nonprofits that serve under-resourced children and families in the area.
