“Everyone who attended the Figawi Ball or who participated in the Figawi Race should be proud to see that their participation has generated tens of thousands of dollars to benefit twenty different Cape & Islands Community Organizations. We hope to see them at ‘Figawi Gives Back’ so they can help us celebrate the impact they’re having in the community.”
