V-Day Damariscotta Organizers Honored by the Governor of Maine for Their Work to End Violence Against Women and Girls


Ellie Hinds, director, and Jeff Payson, producer of V-Day Damariscotta have been chosen to be honored at a tea at the Governor’s Mansion by Gov. John Baldacci on October 13th, 2005. The V-Day organizers were nominated for this honor by their primary beneficiary, New Hope For Women, for their continued funding of domestic violence prevention through V-Day productions of ‘The Vagina Monologues.’ V-Day Damariscotta has raised $18,000 through benefit productions of ‘The Vagina Monologues’ and has enlightened countless women and men about violence against women and girls. This year marks Ms. Hinds and Mr. Payson’s fifth year organizing a V-Day event.
