2015 Beneficiary: NH Non-game and Endangered Wildlife Program
In 2008, Stonyfield became the first private land owner to create and maintain habitat for the state endangered New England Cottontail rabbit. This year, in addition to maintaining habitat for the state’s largest population of endangered rabbits, Stonyfield will be donating a portion of race proceeds to New Hampshire’s Non-game and Endangered Wildlife Program to help support species conversation efforts.

Hailing from Manchester, New Hampshire, Greg, Joey, Mike and Kevin are the homegrown bandmates of Nimbus 9. Formed more than fifteen years ago as an original rock quartet, Nimbus 9 has grown and evolved into the high-energy, multi-faceted entertainers we see today. With their dynamic, youthful flavor of Top 40 hits, the band is one of the most sought-after acts in New England for weddings, private events, and nightclubs.
Drawing upon their Berklee College of Music education, this tightly-knit quintet has composed an eclectic catalog of music from pop to rock to R&B, and they do it all with ease. Their energy, enthusiasm, and musicianship are unrivaled, which is why Nimbus 9 has been named one of the best cover bands in New Hampshire by the Hippo Press. If a legendary night of live music is what you seek, look no further than Nimbus 9
