We are hoping you would be willing to help spread the word about the Cape Ann YMCA’s Taste of Cape Ann event coming up on October 3. We would like to let the community know about this event so they can experience a wonderful evening of all the best food and wine from around the Cape Ann Community while helping the Y in its effort to help teens throughout Cape Ann – 100% of the proceeds directly impact the Y’s Teen Leadership Development programs through the Y’s Teen Centers in Gloucester and Rockport.
More than 25 local restaurants and vendors come together in one night of support for the YMCA
Beverly, September 18, 2013 – The Taste of Cape Ann brings together twenty-five local restaurants and vendors to celebrate an evening of food and fundraising for the Cape Ann YMCA. Join the Cape Ann community on Thursday, October 3 at 6:00pm for this great event and support the Y. Help the Y help our kids! Enjoy sumptuous tastings of the best food and wine in Cape Ann.
Through the generous support of the Cape Ann community spearheaded by Beauport Financial, Tom Davis CPA and Robert Stewart, P.C. – 100% of the proceeds directly impact the Y’s Teen Leadership Development programs through the Y’s Teen Centers in Gloucester and Rockport.
Building upon a strong history of success with service-learning initiative and building the Leaders of Tomorrow, our Y will be once-again bringing local teens to Nicaragua in February and New Orleans in April. Also, we’ve added another option for April vacation – a trip to Navajo Nation in Arizona. On all of these excursions, as with our local efforts in the community, teens work side-by-side with adult Y Staff and Volunteers, upholding our motto of “Working Together for a Stronger Community”.
The Cape Ann Y has a long history of being at the forefront of youth work with teens in the Cape Ann community and strives to empower the next generation of leaders by giving them the tools to succeed. Through service learning opportunities, leadership clubs and drop-in Teen Centers where everyone is welcome, the Y is creating an inviting and inspiring atmosphere for young adults to thrive.
Executive Director of the Cape Ann Y and Teen Camp Services, Rick Doucette, says, “Having the support of the Cape Ann restaurant, food and beverage and wine community at this event each year helps us raise the funds necessary to deliver top-notch teen programming for the kids in Cape Ann. Providing leadership-development programming is the cornerstone of our mission-driven work and a way for teens to go be engaged and active in the community and beyond.”
