The Love Ball keeps on boun­cing, thanks to Nan­cy Gra­ham and her ge­ne­rous friends, fa­mi­ly and col­leagues. Last spring, Nan­cy Gra­ham, a Dia­betes Edu­ca­tion Pro­gram nurse, ini­tia­ted the Win­ches­ter Dis­trict Me­mo­rial Hos­pi­tal (WDMH) Love Ball Pro­ject. As a pa­tient and WDMH em­ployee, Gra­ham said she is proud of the hos­pi­tal and wants to give back. She in­vi­ted others to make a dif­fe­rence by ma­king a do­na­tion to the WDMH Foun­da­tion. Over the sum­mer, the pro­ject rai­sed $985. And in Sep­tem­ber, Gra­ham held a Camp­fire for Can­cer and rai­sed ano­ther $2,490. To date, $3,475 has been do­na­ted. “My friends wan­ted to do­nate and it was a lot of fun,” she said. “There were about 75 people around the camp­fire.” The eve­ning in­clu­ded per­for­mances by lo­cal ta­lent, a big camp­fire and, of course, marsh­mal­lows. “It was a great eve­ning in the hood,” ad­ded Lu­cy Kroeze, one of the hosts for the eve­ning. “Thank you to eve­ryone who is sup­por­ting the WDMH Love Ball Pro­ject,” said Kris­ten Cas­sel­man, WDMH Foun­da­tion ma­na­ging di­rec­tor. “Eve­ry day, our do­nors go above and beyond with ge­ne­rous and crea­tive fun­drai­sing events. Big or small, eve­ry one of them has made an im­pact and we are al­ways gra­te­ful.” –
