Best Local Charitable Organization
Jen’s Friends: Jen Hill lost her battle with brain cancer in 1998, but her legacy lives on through this non-profit organization that provides financial help to cancer patients and their families. “It was her dying wish to help others struggling with this terrible disease,” says Jen’s Friends’ Wendy Holmes. 230 E. Conway Road, Conway, NH; (603) 356-5083.
Best Charity Event
Climb Against Cancer: This fundraiser for Jen’s Friends is one of the biggest charity events of the year. Started 18 years ago, the event raised over $100,000 on its 10th anniversary and nearly $90,000 last year.
