The Benefit of Fundraising

July 24, 2012  |  By Elyse DeGroot, Director of Community Relations & Marketing

As the excitement finally settles from the Duffy Health Center’s Evening of Stars Gala benefit, we have already begun to hear “What will you do next year to top the Bermuda trip?” Yup, it was quite the event. Bobby Orr and Derek Sanderson signing autographs; a private Rectrix Aviation jet just waiting to whisk eight people away for the weekend in Bermuda; and lots of great auction items. The food was great too! My personal favorite was the make-your-own-chowder station.

But as you know, it really is about more than just the event. Not only did eight lucky people win the trip of a life time – a round trip flight on a Rectrix Aviation private jet to Bermuda and 2 nights free accommodations at the Fairmont Hamilton Princess – but the Duffy Health Center staff exceeded its fundraising goals for the event! This will mean that people across the Cape who are experiencing homelessness or who may be on the verge of becoming homeless, will continue to receive much needed health care services…either in our Hyannis clinic, on our van or in the camps where our outreach workers do just that – reach out.

How will we possibly top this year’s event? Good question. Please consider emailing your ideas to me. Who knows, maybe your idea will be next year’s winner!
