Save the Date – November 22nd!
Fifth Annual Peak Potential Dinner and Charity Auction
The beautiful Derryfield Restaurant
Manchester, NH, will host the 5th Annual Peak Potential Dinner and
Charity Auction on Saturday night November 22nd. If you’ve attended any of the previous Peak Potentials,
you need no further encouragement to join us once again. If this would be your first time attending, this
event is a fun and memorable evening of good company, delicious food, spectacular auctions and raffles, an
inspiring presentation from Randy, and the chance to meet Autumn, Randy's newest companion and guide from
Guiding Eyes for the Blind.
Tickets are now available at www.2020visionquest.org/peak-potential.html.
Please be aware that this event has sold out for the past two years. Tickets are available for individuals,
couples, and tables of eight; the more seats you purchase at once, the lower the per-seat cost. And if you
need another incentive to get your tickets early – tables of eight will be available at an Early Bird price
of $500 until September 1st. That's just $62.50 per person!
All funds raised by Peak Potential will support our two sponsored charities: the
New Hampshire Association for the Blind in Concord, NH,
and Guiding Eyes for the Blind in Yorktown Heights, NY.
Event Sponsorships are also available starting at just $200.
Visit the Peak Potential official event website
between now and November 22nd for everything you need to know about Peak Potential: how to order tickets, what items
will be up for auction, how to become a sponsor, and more.
Eleventh NHAB Walk a Big Success . . . but Randy now can only tell tall tales of former tail
Beautiful late-spring weather and an enthusiastic, supportive crowd of walkers gathered in Concord, NH on Saturday June 7th to
step out for the NHAB’s 11th Annual 3K Walk for Sight. Sighted and non-sighted walkers alike, and several guide dogs, strolled
the sunny streets of Concord together to cover the course from the NHAB headquarters to the State House and back. Among the
walkers Saturday were Randy, Tracy and Autumn Pierce—Randy a tad lighter on this day after having lost a friendly fundraising
wager to Tracy and thus having to allow her to (gleefully) remove his twenty-plus-year-old ponytail before the event. Oh,
the humanity! All told, some 50 supporters walked for 2020 Vision Quest—raising approximately $9000 for this team alone. Several
hundred more people overall joined in the fun for a great cause, raising thousands more additionally for NHAB.

We Salute and Honor the Marvelous Mighty Quinn
12/11/04 — 1/20/14
Farewell Quinn – We are all so fortunate to have had you touch our lives. Your love,
devotion, perseverance and playfulness are held ever so warmly in our hearts. You
enriched my life in so many wonderful ways well beyond the incredible Guide work for
which you were trained. The heights we climbed, the lives you changed and the vacancy
you leave are unimaginably immense. I hurt and grieve your loss intensely. I promise to
honor you and the gifts you gave to me, Tracy and our world. I love you my beloved boy
and I am in the company of so many who will feel similarly.
