HISTORY OF THE GAME

The CHaD NH East-West High School All-Star Football Game is an effort that began with inspiration from Manchester business leader Nick Vailas, who wanted to produce New Hampshire's first intrastate, high school football all-star game as a fundraising event for the Children's Hospital at Dartmouth Hitchcock (CHaD). After contacting CHaD, Nick worked closely with CHaD to form the committees needed to execute the event.

The first game, powered by the Vailas' Bedford & Nashua Ambulatory Surgical Centers, made its debut on June 23, 2012, and has since raised over $2 million through the generosity and dedication of corporate sponsors, players, spirit team members, community leaders and steadfast committee members. Entering 2022, West leads the all-time series 6-3.
