We have been busy at the Cape and Islands United Way! Highlights this past month included our Day of Caring, the 2nd annual Community Baby Shower, and preparing for our Community Impact Celebration next week, where we announce our 2019-2020 non profit partners. And our biggest event of the year - the Best Night of the Year - is next month!
Here's a recap of what's been happening and what you have to look forward to.
About the Event
This year, you can look forward to a fresh take on a beautiful evening. Live music & dancing to Stage Door Canteen, delicious food and beverages from our local restaurants... all we need is YOU!
From thrilling sports experiences to sailing in the Pacific to the ultimate food and wine vacation, this year's auction lineup has something for everyone. And stay tuned, because there's more coming!
Almost one third of the funds we distribute to our community is raised at our annual events. So as and event sponsor, your generosity has a direct impact on improving the lives of our friends and neighbors!

April 10th: Day of Caring
Each April, we organize a Day of Caringto bring community members together for an impactful day of volunteering. This year, 40 volunteers worked united and served a combined total of 130 volunteer hours, doing service projects at local nonprofits. Thank you so much to all of the fabulous members of our community who helped make this year's Day of Caring such a success!
April 28th: Community Baby Shower
2nd annual Community Baby Shower was a wonderful day for new and expectant families in need. The day would not be possible without the many donations of time, services and goods, all generously given by individuals and local businesses.
The event was sponsored by Women United, Premier Companies, Cape Cod Healthcare and Cape Cod Five Cents Savings Bank. Special thanks to Cardi's Furniture for their generous donation of a crib and glider, and to A Baby Center, who donated more than $1,000 in diapers and (through a grant from the Hyannis Rotary) 50 car seats!
