Freedom Energy Logistics Sponsors and Attends 36th Annual Bobby Stephen’s St. Patrick’s Day Fundraiser
Delicious Corn Beef, Irish Step Dancers, Politicians, and Charitable Auctions. Can you think of a better way to spend your St. Patrick’s Day? Bobby Stephen has been throwing a rocking St. Patrick’s Day fundraiser for 36 years in a row. Freedom Energy Logistics, local experts in energy procurement for New England based businesses, is a very proud sponsor of this event. In Attendance were, the Governor of New Hampshire, Maggie Hassan, Senator Jean Shaheen, Senate hopeful Scott Brown, Manchester Mayor Ted Gatsas, and legendary Southern New Hampshire University Basketball coach Stan Spirou, along with many other New Hampshire Celebrities.
This year’s event raised more than $70,000 for the Bobby Stephen Fund for Education which provides college scholarships to disadvantage students. A past recipient of a Bobby Stephen scholarship received a standing ovation after he gave an honest and heartwarming speech about how the scholarship allowed him to turn his life around after it had started heading down the wrong path.
Further festivities for the event included speeches from Governor Hassan, Bobby Stephen, Mayor Gatsas, Jean Shaheen, Stan Spirou, wonderful performances from local Irish Step dancers, a delicious Corn Beef and Cabbage dinner, and a lively auction hosted by Rich Girard from the popular radio show Girard at large. Thank you Bobby Stephen for throwing such a successful fundraising and wildly entertaining event, and for your continued dedication to New Hampshire students.
