Best Night

Sunday, June 27 – 5:30 PM at the Pelham House Resort

23 years of community

23 years ago, supporters and friends of the Cape and Islands United Way gathered a a private home in Chatham with one goal in mind. Enjoy an evening celebrating and coming together for our community.

Since that evening in 1998, Best Night has been the signature fundraising event for the Cape and Islands United Way and the unofficial event kick off to summer. Best Night has helped give back more than $2.5 million back to the community, which in turn makes a positive difference in the lives of more than 50,000 people every year.
