BHB SPRING FUNDRAISER/RAFFLE
Date: May 8th, 2021
Time: 12:00 PM
Description of Event: After a long winter of lockdown and almost a full year of virtual meetings, BHB is happy to announce that we will be meeting outdoors for our Spring Fundraiser/Raffle. This will take place at beautiful Hammonasset State Park in Madison, CT. BHB members are hard at work donating prizes and trying to sell raffle tickets for $1/each. A list of our beautiful prizes to be raffled in this website under the Photo's Section.
Prizes for our BHB-Charity-Fundraiser/Raffle have been donated by the following BHB Members: Vinny B., Tony M., Jim P., Tom O., Alex G., Vinny E., David C., Mike B., Emilio T., Mike R., Dominic P., Greg P., and John W.
In the Spirit of Charity and Community Outreach, 50% of the proceeds from this raffle will be donated to Charity and 50% will be donated to our BHB Sunshine Fund to help our own BHB Members with misfortune/loss/sickness/grief.
This will also be an outdoor Pizza Party with soda served.
We plan to have a Saturday meeting each month thru the Summer until we return to our usual meeting place (West Haven Community Center).
4/15/21 - Update on Spring Fundraiser/Raffle. Our Fundraiser/Raffle is going terrific. Over 400 tickets have now been sold and there are over 25 prizes which have been donated. Looking forward to seeing everyone at Hammonasset State Park on Saturday, May 8th at 12 Noon. It is going to be great fun as we raise money for charity. Pizza and soda will be served.
3/1/21 - We have been meeting online (due to Caronavirus) since last March and are now planning to meet in person (with social distancing) in May. This first meeting will be our BHB Spring Fundraiser. We will continue to meet in person throughout the Spring and Summer months). Hopefully by the Fall we will be able to return to the West Haven Community House and continue our in-person meetings.
6/30/20 - The online ZOOM meetings have been going well in lieu of meeting in person. Our Annual Summer Picnic on August 8th at Chatfield Hollow State Park is our first attempt to be together since COVID-19. Many of us are anxious to see one another. Safety will be our first concern and therefore this year there will be no BBQ or food sharing.
9/26/19 - One of our members (George) has contacted me with information on an event that I would like to share with all of you. I am sure this will be a wonderful function that several of you in the BHB group may wish to attend.

9/6/19 - BHB is happy to begin our 11th year in operation. We continue to enjoy our social funtions, annual Holiday Parties, Summer Picnic and Spring Brunch for charity. The purpose of the group which is for each member to offer support to others in BHB is being fulfilled. We continue to grow and look forward to our forthcoming year.
7/27/19 - This years Summer Picnic on this date at Chatfiled Hollow State Park was an amazing success. The group had tons of fun with the barbeque, water balloon toss, tremendous food and the opportunity to just relax and chill. The function was very well attended on a beautiful day. Look for pictures to be posted here on website.
5/19/19 - Our BHB Brunch at the New Haven Pride Center was a terrific event. It was well attended with wonderful food and very generous raffle prizes. We were able to raffle cash, gift cards and baskets, TV, and many other fine prizes. We raised approximately $275 which allowed us to make a generous donation to the New Haven Pride Center and remaining funds went to establish the BHB Sunshine Club to assist our own members with health issues and loss. Probably our best success yet.
3/8/19 - BHB will be having its annual Spring Brunch at the New Haven Pride Center in downtown New Haven. This is a fun event with lots of food and prizes. The event will be held on Sunday, May 19th from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Should be another fund time.
12/18/18 - We had our annual Holiday Party on December 18th of 2018. Had a great turnout and food was delicious. Everyone participated in sharing and the catered food from PM deli was excellent. Everyone loved the gift swap and had many many laughs. Party was well attended and a big hit. Everyone had fun.
10/21/18 - Patrick, the Director of the Pride Center in New Haven, is now posting the BHB information and link on his website. Vinny and I will be positing the same on our website. BHB and the Pride Center will attempt to invite one another to their holiday parties. Information forthcoming.
Please note that I have created a new section called Useful Links. It will be in this area where I will post any external website links which may be of use to our members.
9/26/18 - The BHB group is extremely saddened to learn of the passing of a fine member, Steve Loso. Steve passed away peacefully in his sleep on September 22nd. Steve joined the group over a year ago and was an active participant and supporter. Steve enjoyed baking for the group, supporting members with their issues and attending the groups social functions and parties. The group will be planning a short memorial service in Steve’s memory during the November 13th meeting. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Steve’s family at this time. He will be sadly missed by the members of BHB.
