Cross Roads House Benefit by the Sea

The Benefit by the Sea gala has become a signature event in the community and is critical to funding our annual operating expenses. Every gift made that night and throughout the year counts toward funding the needs of our residents.
20th Annual Benefit by the Sea a Huge Success
The Seacoast community helped us raise more than $724,000!

Cross Roads House is excited to announce that this year’s 20th Annual Benefit by the Sea, held May 7, 2022 at the Wentworth by the Sea Hotel, was our most successful fundraising event to date. The generosity of the Seacoast community was on full display with event sponsorships and guest pledges totaling more than $724,000. We are so grateful to the 60 corporate and private sponsors, including our lead sponsor The 100 Club; benefactors Novocure, Michael, Julie and Piper Bean, Gary and Karen DeStefanao, and Lex Scourby; platinum sponsors BankProv, the LeMay Family Goodworks Foundation, and Chris and Audrey Sargent. Guests at the event were equally generous, offering pledges that essentially doubled our sponsorship dollars.

We continue to be inspired by the support of those in the Seacoast community who want to help us break the cycle of homelessness. The Benefit by the Sea gala has become our signature event and is critical to funding our annual operating expenses. This year Cross Roads House must raise over $1 million in operating revenue from private donors. Even with the amazing outpouring of support for our Benefit by the Sea gala, Cross Roads House needs your support. Please consider making a donation today.

For more information about this event, or about any of our donor opportunities, contact Lissa Gumprecht at or 603-436-2218 ext. 112.
