Thank you to everyone who participated in Cape Cod Children's Place 9th Annual Golf Tournament and Art Outside the Box Auction on August 5, 2013 at Ocean Edge Resort and Golf Club. Almost $67,000 was raised for CCCP programs.
We had 99 golfers on the course and 250 guests at the auction. Our Title and Auction Sponsor once again was Seamen's Bank. Golf Tournament sponsors were Cape Associates, Inc. & Specialty Builders' Supply Inc. Nauset Marine sponsored the Hole-In-One contest and Eastham Ben & Jerry's provided ice cream on the course.
Please thank our sponsors by patronizing their businesses. Also, thanks to all the local artists who painted the lunchboxes and donated their art and the local business that donated product and gift certificates for the raffle.
CCCP parents William "Chopper" Young and Allison Paine, shucked over 500 oysters and clams donated by them and other Wellfleet Shell Fishermen, Nancy and Jim O'Connell and Barbara Austin to the event. Alex Hay of Wellfleet Shellfish Company/Mac's Seafood facilitated the processing and delivery of the fabulous local product.
Thanks also to Truro Vineyards who hosted an auction preview benefit at the Vineyard on July 22 suppoort by Kristen Roberts and Blackfish Restaurant, also parents, and the Roberts family.
Musical entertainment was provided by the Bert Jackson Trio comprised of Bert, Roe Osborn and Paul Lesniak.
This signature event is the major fund-raiser for Cape Cod Children's Place and allows us to maintain our tuition assistance program for struggling local families. Thank you to everyone who contributed their talent and volunteer time to the event. We couldn't have done it without you.

A Little History of Cape Cod Children's Place:
The planning for Cape Cod Children's Place started in April 1990 to establish a center to serve families and children in the Lower and Outer Cape towns of Brewster, Chatham, Eastham, Harwich, Orleans, Provincetown, Truro and Wellfleet. In November 1992, a state grant was awarded to be managed through the Town of Eastham for the construction of CCCP. In subsequent years, CCCP has continued to receive various grants from the State of Massachusetts and support from regional and local organizations, and individuals.
We opened our doors in September 1995 to our first preschoolers as a formally incorportated non-profit agency. The toddler program began shortly after, and later we added infant care. The Early Education Programs serve children from the ages of one month to five years.
Our Family support Programs started in 1998, with free playgroups and family activities, and soon expanded to include free parent education and family support services.
During 1999 with additional grant funding, the Early Childhood Resource Center was created. The Resource Center enabled various local Educators to use and borrow equipment from our location. (Presently, funding for the Resource Center has disappeared.)
In 2006, in collaboration with Seamen's Bank, our Sea-Babies satellite infant/toddler program was born at the Wellfleet Council of Aging.
In addition to the Early Childhood Education Programs housed on Ballwic Rd. in Eastham, and at the Wellfleet Council of Aging, Cape Cod Children's Place also sponsors:
