Dover Children’s Home 11th Annual Golf Tournament

Kingswood Hits The Links For Local Charity

The entire staff of Kingswood Leasing was proud to support our 7th consecutive Dover Children’s Home Golf Tournament. This charitable tournament is one of the largest events that the Dover Children’s Home puts on every year, generating much of the needed funding for their non-profit programs for children. Thousands of NH’s most vulnerable children have received exceptional care at DCH since 1893. Their personalized treatment allows the young people that they serve to gain self-confidence and experience significant improvement in their family relationships, decision-making skills, and school performance.

Fundraisers and donations of any kind translate into the program’s ability to provide exceptional care while attempting to provide a positive adolescent experience. DCH is committed to improving the lives of the young people placed in their care by offering a wide array of services, experiences, and opportunities that celebrate each child’s individual strengths and personal needs.

As one of only a few community-based residential treatment programs for children remaining in NH, it is more important than ever for Dover Children’s Home to provide a safe haven for young people to develop the skills they will need to become healthy, productive members of the community.

“After another incredible year at Dover Children’s Home 11th Annual Golf Tournament, we want to say a HUGE thank you for helping us reach our goal of almost $25,000 raised during the event!!!!!  It was an absolutely beautiful day, lots of fun had, delicious food and great company!

We are so very grateful for your support, by golfing in the tournament, buying raffle tickets and bidding on our silent-auction items!  We would never have been able to reach our goal without you all!” – Renee Touhey-Childress, Executive Director, Dover Children’s Home

Hope to see you all at the 12th Annual Dover Children’s Home Golf Tournament in July 2019!!!

We will be there!!!

9th Annual Bowl-A-Thon

“It Takes A Community To Raise A Child”

The Kingswood Kingpins Strike Back Once Again To Support Local Charity

Kingswood Leasing was proud to take part in the 9th Annual Dover Children’s Home Bowl-A-Thon, doing our part to raise funds for our favorite local charity. This year we were witness to another successful event where 90 teams and approximately 380 bowlers raised just under $27,000! All funds go back into providing the best quality treatment services for at risk youth at Dover Children’s Home.

“Kingswood Leasing was a huge contributor to our event, and we are absolutely thrilled with how the day turned out. Dover Children’s Home is so thankful for all of the support we have received and for everyone who helped make the day such a success!!” ~ Renee Touhey-Childress, Executive Director, Dover Children’s Home

The Kingpins Strike Again!

The entire team had a great time bowling with family and friends, but everyone at Kingswood was especially proud to earn recognition as this year’s top fundraising team. An honor we have now earned in back-to-back events. We would like to recognize some of our top contributors, who we share and owe much of this honor with:

  • Pawnee Leasing
  • Financial Pacific
  • Global Financial

Many more donors pledged and the support was overwhelming. We cannot thank you all enough for your generosity… Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!

And The Theme-Wear Winner Is?!?!

Not us. Though we had a great time dressing up as Game of Thrones characters in our attempt to win best theme-wear for the event. Kingswood tips our bowling hats to the winner, Keller-Williams Reality, who won with a great ‘Where’s Waldo’ theme. Maybe it was the guy wearing the dress and blonde wig that threw off the judges?

However, not to be outdone, the Kingpins did take home one more illustrious honor… top score for our session! Looks like Daenerys will have to add one more title to her list of names… Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen, the First of Her Name, Queen of Meereen, The Unburnt, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Protector of the Realm, Queen of the Andals, the Rhoynar and the First Men, Lady Regnant of the Seven Kingdoms, Mother of Dragons, Breaker of Chains… and now the Strike Queen??

Kingswood Leasing, Inc. is celebrating its 25 year anniversary as a full service, nation wide commercial capital brokerage firm. This year the company is celebrating the trust that is reflected by the growing relationships Kingswood has with its clients.

“I am very proud and grateful for the trust that our clients place in us and to our employees who have helped us get here.” – Clifford Metcalfe Jr., Owner of Kingswood Leasing, Inc.

Kingswood Leasing incorporated in 1991 after Cliff Metcalfe Jr. ventured out on his own in the competitive finance industry and began having immediate success. Kingswood began by serving the industry with the greatest pain points with regard to securing capital, the restaurant and food service industry. Kingswood Leasing’s approach to securing capital was unique. Kingswood had the experience to help clients secure financing that they couldn’t otherwise secure on their own. Kingswood forged relationships and new programs with funding sources to meet the unique needs inherent in the restaurant and food service industry. Kingswood has been a trusted partner to organizations through the good times and the not so good times, outperforming competitors who were not prepared to work with owners through thick and thin.

“Kingswood Leasing has been our longest, most reliable partner for over 23 years.   That tenure, through multiple economic cycles, is a testament to Kingswood’s exceptional value and expertise they provide as a financing resource to the food and beverage service industry.” – Gary Souverein, President, Pawnee Leasing Corporation, a Chesswood Group Ltd Company, Toronto Stock Exchange: CHW

The trust placed in Kingswood over 25 years has in turn given Kingswood the privilege of establishing even more unique and exclusive capital programs for clients that are available no where else. Kingswood Leasing has earned a reputation of being a trusted partner to restaurant, hospitality, and start-up business owners. Nationally ranked Fortune 500 companies use Kingswood as their preferred finance provider. Most recently, Kingswood has even started securing capital for international clients, growing Kingswood’s reach and capability.

“Our mission to be a trusted partner for buyers and sellers has driven the company since day one. We pride ourselves on communication and providing sound financial advice, which continues to grow the value proposition Kingswood offers in today’s marketplace.” – Clifford Metcalfe III, Vice President & Chief Operating Officer of Kingswood Leasing, Inc.

Kingswood At The Tournament

Kingswood Leasing is a proud supporter of the Dover Children’s Home. For the past 5 years Kingswood has participated in the DCH Golf Tournament, played at the Links at Outlook in Berwick, Maine. The tournament helps raise funding and awareness for the DCH and their mission to enrich the lives of adolescents and families through the highest quality services and programs. It is a great opportunity for community members to come together to support a great cause, and have a great time while doing it.

The 2016 Dover Children’s Home Golf Tournament was a huge success. There were 96 golfers and 15 volunteers that contributed their time to participate in the event and who helped DCH achieve their goals for the tournament. Kingswood was represented by 9 golfers and 2 volunteers.

With such an incredibly generous community surrounding us, we were able to blow our goal of $23,500 out of the water this year at the 9th Annual Dover Children’s Home Golf Tournament!  On behalf of the children, staff and board of directors, I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank everyone at Kingswood Leasing for your incredible support in all of our events!  We could not have been so successful this year if it wasn’t for all of you!! – Renee Touhey-Childress, Executive Director, Dover Children’s Home

Thank you, Renee! We had a great time and look forward to next year!

Congratulations to the Dover Rotary Girls Softball Team!

Dover Rotary Wins Division Championship Title

The top-seeded Dover Rotary girls softball team captured the Dover Youth Softball League’s 10U Division championship with a hard-fought, 7-5 win over Collins Sports Center at Shaw’s Lane in Dover on June 20, finishing the season with an impressive 13-1 record.
Mariah Ouellette started on the mound for Rotary and pitched two solid innings before being relieved by Charlotte Wensley, who closed out the game with two scoreless innings of her own. Addie Sheehan and Hannah Fitzgerald pitched admirably for Collins in the loss, combining to hold the potent Rotary lineup in check and keep the game within reach.
Rotary’s Jordyn March provided the game’s pivotal offensive blow, plating Sasha Elly with the eventual winning run with a two-out line drive single to right in the bottom of the second inning to break a 5-5 deadlock. Collins’ catcher, Sophia Cedrone, tagged out Rotary’s Ella Wasserman at the plate to end the inning and prevent further damage, thanks to a perfect relay throw by Sheehan.
Rotary added a lone insurance run in the third to pull ahead 7-5, and the scoring ended there as Collins’ fourth-inning threat fell just short. (Fosters)

Aaron Wensley, Account Executive for Kingswood Leasing, has been coaching local athletics for over 8 years in his home town of Dover, NH. Coaching gives Aaron the opportunity to focus on two of his passions – his family and love of sports. The Kingswood Leasing family could not be more proud of Aaron and his status as a role model in our community. Everyone at Kingswood Leasing would like to congratulate Aaron and the Dover Rotary Softball Team on their triumphant season!
