2018 Kappa Delta Dinner & Auction

Hampton, New Hampshire—On Saturday, April 7, the University of New Hampshire Alpha Sigma chapter of Kappa Delta sorority raised more than $24,000 at their seventh-annual dinner and auction for child abuse prevention.

More than 130 attendees gathered at Ashworth by the Sea to enjoy a three-course buffet dinner, live and silent auctions, entertainment from UNH a cappella group the New Hampshire Gentlemen, and raffles throughout the evening. Popular auction items included a week stay in Costa Rica, local overnights, fresh lobster delivery, Red Sox tickets, ski passes, handcrafted items, restaurant gift cards and much more.

“We love to see how many generous people come out to support such a worthy cause,” said Keryn Bernard-Kriegl, Executive Director of NH Children’s Trust. “The Kappa Delta sisters continue to impress us year after year.”

Kappa Delta Sorority’s Chapter Advisory Board member Claire Murdough worked closely with NH Children’s Trust and shared her pride in the all of the members of Alpha Sigma Chapter of Kappa Delta Sorority.

NH Children's Trust hosted a pre-auction cocktail party in a separate space from the dinner and auction. Board members and staff met donors and attendees to explain NH Children’s Trust’s role in preventing child abuse and neglect in our state.

“Great childhoods begin with all of us,” said Diane Hastings, Communications Director at NH Children’s Trust. “As the state chapter of Prevent Child Abuse America, we support agencies in the state who work with families, and we coordinate efforts to help strengthen families.”

Of funds raised, 80% will go to New Hampshire Children's Trust, state chapter of Prevent Child Abuse America, to help children and families locally. The remaining 20% will benefit Prevent Child Abuse America via Kappa Delta national.

Next year’s dinner and auction will again take place in March. For more information on donating or buying ad space, please email Diane Hastings at dhastings@nhchildrenstrust.org.
