The 20th anniversary of the Hookers Ball, the biggest fundraiser of the Cape Cod Commercial Fishermen’s Alliance, was celebrated on Aug. 7 with a blend of in-person and at home events.
The event raised more than $150,000 to help the nonprofit continue important programs, including the haddock chowder initiative that was launched during COVID to keep fishermen on the water and provide nutritious meals to a growing number of food bank clients.
“The organization was born in crisis and has weathered many more by creating partnerships and long-lasting solutions that build community resiliency and healthy oceans,” said John Pappalardo, CEO of the Fishermen’s Alliance. “In 30 years, we have realized that good things can take a long time – your steadfast support allows us to persevere and win.”
