Join Me at Cocktails for CAPE!
CAPE (Canton Alliance for Public Education) will be holding its 7th annual Fundraising Gala on March 11th at 7:00 pm at the CBS Scene at Patriot's Place in Foxboro, Massachusetts. This year's event is called Cocktails for CAPE.
CAPE is a non-profit organization, run entirely by volunteers, whose mission is to provide funding for those projects and programs in the Canton Public Schools that are not able to be funded through the regular school department budget. We all know that these are trying times for municipalities everywhere so the need for additional funding is more important than ever.
CAPE has three main fundraising events - The Annual Spelling Bee, the CAPE Gala and the Honor Thy Teacher Program (which I will write about later this spring). Since 2004, CAPE has awarded approximately $146,000 to fund nearly 70 grant requests. The grant requests are submitted mainly by the public school teachers in Canton (some are submitted by administrators and staff) and come from all school levels throughout the district. The grant guidelines request that the programs be sustainable from the one-time grant funding and provide ongoing benefit throughout the years - not a one-time program. They have funded a wide variety of programs and requests.
This year's fundraiser will be held at the CBS Scene, which is a restaurant/sports bar that overlooks Gillette Stadium, home to the New England Patriots. It is a really fun location! Tickets are just $25.00 each. There will be food, cash bar and of course, silent auctions and raffles. It's a fun night to get out and relax with your friends and neighbors from Canton and it's all for a good cause! I hope to see you there!
