Mid-Cape Home Centers raised more than $38,000 for Cape Cod Children’s Place in the fifth annual E.J. Jaxtimer Charter Cup fishing tournment, held July 14.
With the pandemic forcing CCCP to close their doors for over six months last year, as well as cancel many of their annual fundraisers, the group still managed to find various ways to virtually support families in need.
Through t-shirt sales, a virtual silent auction, social media fundraising and much more, the local community rallied together with Mid-Cape Home Centers to raise $38,221 for Cape Cod Children’s Place.
Cindy Horgan, Executive Director of Cape Cod Children’s Place, was presented with the
check following the tournmant.
“I was speechless,” she said. “Cape Cod and people like the Mid-Cape team continue to inspire me with their generosity. These last several months, I have witnessed over and over the kindness of people that care just because it is the right thing to do. Thank you to the Jaxtimer Family for their compassion for the community and to Mid-Cape for making such an impact on so many children and families of Cape Cod.”
The funds will go directly to the CCCP support programming and services they provide to so many local families.
