This year’s Gourmet Festival & Auction theme, “Better Together,” appropriately described the Agency’s first in-person fundraiser in two years. “This is the Agency’s 35th Anniversary, so it was particularly meaningful to celebrate together again,” said CEO Maryse Wirbal.

The Front Door Agency’s largest fundraiser of the year returned in-person to the Nashua Country Club on Sunday, May 15. More than 300 supporters gathered at the 34th Annual Gourmet Festival & Auction to enjoy food from 18 local restaurants and chefs while bidding on hundreds of exciting auction items. The event and subsequent online auction raised more than $238,000 to support the Front Door Agency’s mission, making it the most successful fundraiser in the Agency’s 35-year history!
