Cape Cod Beer Hosts LAST GASP Fundraising Event
to Raise Funds for 8 local charities.
Every rider in the LAST GASP CHARITY BIKE RIDE has to raise a minimum of $500. To be a BIG WHEEL you must raise $1,250. In 2012 Team Cape Cod Beer raised a total of $55, 295. Our goal for 2013 is to break $60, 000. As of August 20th, Team Cape Cod Beer has 72 riders on it, up from 61 in 2012! In an effort to help each and every rider on Team Cape Cod Beer maximize their fundraising potential, Cape Cod Beer, together with its team is hosting an auction and fundraising party! The AUCTION, on display at the brewery will culminate on Friday August 23 with a PARTY hosted by the Team and the drawing of the auction winners.
The AUCTION is on display at the brewery at Cape Cod Beer daily now until the PARTY Friday night August 23rd. There is a large variety of items including experiences, art, gift certificate and more, and for each $5 donation you will receive a ticket for a chance on any of the 30 items. You may bid as many times as you like! All funds go directly to Cape Cod Charitable Funraisers in the name of the rider who donated the item. Those funds then go directly to the local charities. The best part: all the money STAYS RIGHT HERE on Cape Cod. Charities supported include: Cape and Islands United Way, Cape Cod Young Professionals, Champ Homes, Hope Hospice, Cape Cod
Kiwanis Clubs of Hyannis and Sandwich, Lyme Awareness of Cape Cod, Silent Spring Institute and
Spaulding Rehabilitation of Cape Cod.
On Friday August 23rd Team Cape Cod Beer will host a PARTY at the brewery from 6pm to 8pm. Tickets are $10 at the door. For $10 you’ll get one beer ticket, and a smorgasbord of awesome edibles from the team itself. During this event we’ll draw the Auction winners. All the money from the door will be divided up to support the fundraising goals of the team members who are helping with the event! Just by coming to the party you’ll be helping us raise money! Everyone is welcome, this is a family friendly event. Kids are free.
About the LAST GASP
The LAST GASP is a classic Cape Cod experience. It is a charity bike ride (September 15th) that consists of a 61 mile bike ride from Sandwich to Provincetown followed by a party boat back to Sandwich and a Lobster Bake to wrap it all up. Last year, 2012, the LAST GASP raised $492,606 for local charities, and all that money stays right here on Cape Cod. The LAST GASP is the brain child of Bill Murphy and the Cape Cod Charitable FunRaisers and has been raising money for Cape Codders for over 20 years. Other CCCF events include Roll the Rock, Spectacle of Trees and the Viva 5k. For more details see www.capecodcharitablefunraisers.com
