Hippo Press: Winter Festival
Jeff Kantor’s Winter Festival highlighted in a Hippo Press article!
The event is being hosted by nonprofit Chill Cares, which Crissy Kantor founded last spring to help New Hampshire residents affected by cancer. Jeff Kantor’s Winter Festival, previously the New Hampshire Prostate Cancer Coalition Winter Festival, was created seven years ago by her father, John Kantor. When he died of prostate cancer in 2015, he passed the torch to Crissy and the general manager and vice president of McIntyre, Ross Boisvert, whose father organized the festival with John before he too died of cancer.
Crissy Kantor and Boisvert have renamed the festival in John’s memory and decided to combine it with McIntyre’s annual Pond Skim and Hawaiian Festival — also a prostate cancer fundraiser — for an expanded day of family activities.
“It’s our first year taking on the festival, and we figured if we create a great event with all these fun things to do, we’ll create greater awareness of prostate cancer and help others to know the facts and encourage the men in our lives to get [regular] tests and try to be as healthy as possible,” Kantor said.
