Seaside Le Mans – The Race for the Cape Cod Community joined the efforts last week to help nonprofits on Giving Tuesday by providing its 2022 beneficiaries with additional grants.
Cape Cod Healthcare, Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, Calmer Choice, Cape Cod Children’s Museum and the Cape & Islands Veterans Outreach Center, all received checks for an additional $500 to help with their various causes.
The money was delivered on Tuesday, Nov. 29, as part of the nationwide Giving Tuesday effort held the week after Thanksgiving to help nonprofit organizations during the busy holiday shopping season.
“We were so excited to provide another donation to these five organizations that are making a real impact each day in the lives of thousands of Cape Cod residents. During this holiday season, we are encouraging everyone to also consider helping these groups with donations of money or time,” said Seaside Le Mans Race Director Samantha Oliviera.
In addition to the checks, each charity was given a locally made charcuterie board and a box of custom-made cookies for their tireless volunteers and staff members.
“It’s important to thank our five 2022 beneficiaries and other non-profits for all the work they do for Cape Cod each year,” said Oliviera.
Seaside Le Mans – The Race for the Cape Cod Community, raised just over $500,000 in September during the annual F-1-style cart race at Mashpee Commons. That puts the overall amount raised since the inception of the event at nearly $9 million.
The race was founded by the South-Yarmouth based The Davenport Companies in 2001 and covers all event related costs.
