The Friends of Norris Cotton Cancer Center

Our mission is to support Dartmouth’s Norris Cotton Cancer Center by raising funds for cancer research and patient supportive services by increasing awareness of our NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, and by acting as ambassadors for the Cancer Center and the communities it serves.

Norris Cotton Cancer Center is a world-renowned cancer treatment and research facility affiliated with The Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. Volunteers raise money, produce events, and facilitate community outreach in an effort to find a cure for cancer.

Dan Cloutier

Worcester Magazine published a rave review of the album Blind Willie’s Lighthouse, saying, “Dan Cloutier’s latest CD is a beacon in the storm. It is an inspiring collection of original songs by Cloutier, chronicling his love of New England, depicted by stormy seas, crashing waves and seagoing captains, along with tales of love and faith. Cloutier’s gift for storytelling is apparent in the richness of his tales.”

Fundraising Challenge

Summer’s a time for family, friends and enjoying the great weather unless you need help with food security or a safe place to sleep. Summer is one of the hardest times for those in need. There are no year-end holiday campaigns, no national holidays to help us remember to give back. As part of 2018’s Manchester Brewfest we introduced a new idea: Cornhole Fundraising Challenge! Run by the 603 Cornhole league.
