Franklin Savings Bank Supports Local Healthcare Programs  

Sponsors Franklin VNA & Hospice Wings in Winter Gala

Press Release

Franklin Savings Bank has a strong reputation for supporting projects that will enhance the lives of people in their communities. Each year Franklin Savings Bank helps change lives through donations, countless volunteer hours, and now, by leading the way in becoming a sponsor for the Wings in Winter Gala. All money raised will benefit the home care and hospice program at Franklin VNA & Hospice.

The Gala will take place at 6 PM on December 14, 2019 at the exclusive La Piece event venue in Tilton. Guests will enjoy dinner, dancing, the opportunity to play a few games, and to bid on items at the silent auction, including rights to name an ice cream flavor for the summer 2020 season at Jordan’s Ice Creamery, and a pair of box seats to a weekend Boston Red Sox game, just seven rows behind the dugout! All proceeds from the dinner and silent auction will help to further the work of Franklin VNA & Hospice in the 14 towns it serves. 


Tickets go on sale September 15 for those looking to enjoy a fun Holiday season evening out, or as a way to host a holiday party without all the work of organizing it yourself. Early birds who buy before October 31 get a free $25 worth of tickets to use at the event, plus they are entered into a raffle for a free ticket to next year’s Wings in Winter Gala! If you buy a table of eight seats, you get $25 worth of tickets for each of the eight seats, two bottles of wine for the table, and ten entries into the raffle for the free tickets to the Wings in Winter Gala for 2020! 

“When Franklin Savings Bank came on as our Appetizer Sponsor they made a statement of support for excellence in local healthcare,” says Tabitha Dowd, Executive Director of Franklin VNA & Hospice. “This level of support will impact multiple families, some in crisis from sudden health problems, others supporting those with life-limiting illnesses at home. Their donation will quite literally change these people’s lives.”

Dowd notes that other sponsorship opportunities are available for businesses or individuals who want to impact their community positively. “When people think of Franklin Savings Bank, I want them to remember how they stepped forward to support us. Their support builds a better place for us all to live and work. It shows a level of respect and belief in our communities. It says that the people who live here deserve high-quality care with dignity and compassion. I cannot express my gratitude strongly enough,” finishes Dowd.

Individual tickets will be available through the Franklin VNA & Hospice website starting September 15, with early bird extras available through October 31. Those interested in sponsorship may contact them directly.
