Manchester, NH--- Easterseals New Hampshire’s 9th Annual Farnum Spirit of Hope event, Celebrating Life, Celebrating Recovery, will be Wednesday, May 11 at 5:30 p.m. at the Manchester Country Club. The event benefits Farnum, Easterseals’ comprehensive substance use treatment program for adults and their families who are struggling with addiction.

Presented by Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, Spirit of Hope features a dinner, client stories, a silent auction and raffles. This event raises funds used to provide vital services to people seeing treatment for substance use.

“Everyone has a different path to recovery. Farnum works with people to help them find theirs. This would not be possible without the generous support of our donors and sponsors,” said Annette Escalante, senior vice president of substance use treatment services for Farnum. “I invite you to come hear the inspiring stories of our clientsand support the work we do to change and save lives in our community.”

“Recovery from substance use is a long process and requires the support of a team of dedicated and skilled people like those at Farnum,” said Joe Emmons, chief development officer at Easterseals NH. “Every donation helps us provide that support to clients.”
