The Green Cocoon Sponsors Rett’s Roost 2019 Superhero 5K

The Green Cocoon was a sponsor of Rett’s Roost (Rett’s) 2019 Superhero 5K held on September 22 at the Throwback Brewery in North Hampton, New Hampshire. Rett’s Roost is a nonprofit that helps children with cancer and their families.

Sponsoring this event has become a tradition for The Green Cocoon. We’ve been a sponsor for the last few years and plan to continue to do so as long as possible.

Because of the theme “Superhero 5K,” there were many people dressed in brightly-colored costumes. Due to the fundraising efforts of so many volunteers, over $18,000 was raised for Rett’s retreats!

Thank you to everyone who came out to run/walk, who donated their time and money and to Capstone Photography for taking such great photos from the day.

See you next year!

The Green Cocoon Attends Breast Cancer Awareness Event

The Green Cocoon Attends Breast Cancer Awareness Event

The Green Cocoon (TGC) owners Jim Materkowski and Candace Lord attended a breast cancer awareness event, “Evening by the Sea.” The event was held on August 11, 2019 at Wentworth by the Sea in Rye, NH. Moreover, it was a fundraiser put on by My Breast Cancer Support. The nonprofit organization provides financial and emotional support to breast cancer patients. These patients live not only in the Greater Seacoast area of New Hampshire but also in Southern Maine.

Giving Back

“The team at The Green Cocoon not only loves working in our community, but also working with our community,” said Lord, herself a breast cancer survivor. “Awareness is very important to me as I am currently undergoing chemotherapy with one treatment left. Furthermore, my prognosis is great and I want to do whatever I can to help other women going through the same thing. Equally important is early detection.”

At the fundraiser attendees enjoyed music, complimentary champagne, hearty appetizers, dessert tastings, and gourmet coffees. Not to mention they were able to bid on silent auction items as well as win raffle gifts.
