Over $30,000 raised

how flannel fundraising was born

It was just a party....

We had the first Flannel Party when we moved to Portsmouth NH in 2010. Beer, Flannel, Friends. An easy recipe. For the next three years, our friends kept coming back, bringing more friends, inviting our neighbors and growing it until we couldn't contain everyone in our little apartment. Year four we decided to plan the event in town at a bar. We put a few raffle items out and sold tickets to raise money for Girls On The Run-Portsmouth. We raised about $800. It was a small start but it launched a platform for one of the best parties for cause in the Seacoast. We have partnered with six different organizations since then and have set higher and higher goals each year. By 2018 we raised over $10,000 for the Greengard Center for Autism.

For our 10th Annual Flannel Party, we aim to raise $15,000 for On-Belay
