“Buy It Now” Summer Fun Fundraiser


Dover, NH  (July 11, 2019) – This summer, anyone can stop into the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire in Dover and pick up some discounted gift certificates for summer fun, all part of the museum’s current Fundraiser. Purchase from a list of discounted gift cards to local attractions and restaurants, gift baskets, art, and more unique experiences. Purchases can only happen in person at the museum (open Mondays through Saturdays, 10am-5pm, and Sundays Noon-5pm), but there’s no bidding and no waiting. After looking over the options, people can buy them and take them home that day, all at a 10% or more discount.


Up for purchase are gift cards to places like the Atlantic Grill, Memories Ice Cream, Lickee’s & Chewy’s Candies & Creamery, passes to places like Charmingfare Farm and Canobie Lake, and special experiences like Boston Duck Tours and a Blast Party Rental, just to name a few. The Fundraiser is first come first served and goes on until everything is gone.


“We’re all so busy in the summer time that we thought it’d be nice to offer a no fuss, no bidding or waiting fundraiser that allows families to get some great discounts on local attractions and restaurants, and also support our mission of hands-on discovery,” shared CMNH President Jane Bard. “We even have some unique stuff for sale like pool noodles with New England sport’s team logos on them, or a work of art made with a palm frond!”
