The Gloucester Sea Cadets were the winners at the most recent Awesome Gloucester Pitch Night, receiving $1000 from the local micro grant foundation to support the leadership training they offer to local youth interested in naval careers.
Each month the Gloucester chapter of the Awesome Foundation solicits proposals from the community and chooses the top three to attend a public Pitch Night on the evening of the thirdMonday. Submitters make their case before the 20 local trustees who have each donated $50 toward the monthly award. The top vote getters walk away with $1000 in cash. Proposals to make Gloucester more awesome can be made at Awesome Gloucester.
