Rising Above For Hope: A Fundraiser for the Ray of Hope

Help Us as We Strive to Address the Mental Health Crisis
Ray of Hope Fundraiser

Join us for Rising Above for HOPE, a gala celebration, on September 15th from 6-9pm at the Castle in the Clouds Lucknow Estate in Moultonborough, New Hampshire. It will be a magnificent evening with dinner and dancing with the Wicked Smart Horn Band, all against a backdrop of spectacular views of the Lakes Region and surrounding mountains.

It’s all to benefit the Ray of Hope Geriatric Behavioral Health, an inpatient center at Cottage Hospital. Accepting patients from across the region including New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, and Massachusetts, Ray of Hope will assist individuals 65 years and older who struggle with depression, dementia, and other behavioral crisis and intervention needs. The cost of construction for this much-needed program is approximately $2 million; the specialized beds alone are a staggering $80,000. We need your help as we strive to address the mental health crisis.

The Ray of Hope Unit will pay homage to the late Raymond S. Burton who served as an Executive Councilor for District One for 34 years. Ray encompassed the values of public service and was instrumental in bringing people together. He cherished his North Country roots and Cottage Hospital was his hospital of choice!
