Backpack to School Program Helps Homeless Youth
The Homeless Prevention Council’s 17th annual Backpack to School Program will run from August through September 2018. The Council is currently accepting new donations of backpacks for children in grades K – 5, and new school supplies, as well. If you are unable to shop, the Council appreciates your contribution to support the purchase of L.L. Bean backpacks, graphing calculators, and other supplies for grades 6 and higher. Please mail cash or checks (with “Backpack” in the memo) to: P.O. Box 828, Orleans, Mass. 02653.

Every year the Homeless Prevention Council provides backpacks and school supplies to hundreds of local Lower Cape children. The supplies they give students are tailored to the requirements for their incoming class and based on supply lists received from their teachers.

The Council wants to make sure that the local kids served feel no different from their peers when school begins. With your help, we can set all our young students up for success this coming school year!

If you would like to donate to the program, please refer to the flyer online at If you would like to enroll children in this program, or if you want to donate and have any questions, please call 508.255.9667.

Cape Cod Museum of Art Annual Gala & Art Auction Soirée by the Bay
Cape Cod Museum of Art (CCMoA) is offering a casually elegant evening of fine food and great fun bidding on the work of some of the Cape’s finest artists at its Soirée by the Bay Gala & Art Auction this Saturday, August 18, 5 – 10 p.m. Guests can participate in either the silent auction, live auction, or both. They can indulge in hors d’oeuvres while placing silent auction bids from 5 – 7 p.m. and/or sit down for a delicious dinner and exciting live auction with auctioneer John Terrio at 7:15 p.m.
Guests will also enjoy a Wine Pull and a 50-50 Raffle. Extraordinary getaways, artfully packaged adventures and other surprise items will also be available for bidding.

CCMoA will also present their annual Muse awards for outstanding contributions to the Museum and art community during the dinner. This special award is a beautiful woven-glass bowl created by artist Benton Jones as a metaphor for individuals who are woven into the fabric of our community.The Muse Artist Award will be presented to Suzanne M. Packer and Joseph Carr will be honored with the Muse Benefactor Award.

Suzanne M. Packer became one of the first Trustees of CCMoA, then called the Cape Museum of Fine Arts, in 1984 and was appointed its first Director in 1985. She initiated many exciting art and fundraising programs, began growing the permanent collection, and oversaw the installation of a donated building, the core of today’s Museum, on the grounds of the Cape Playhouse. She was responsible for the growth of the Museum into 1992, after which she took up painting full-time. Packer has been in numerous solo art exhibitions and her work is in many private collections. She recently returned to the Museum as the Volunteer Archivist and was made an Honorary Trustee last year.

Joseph Carr is the founder of Joseph Carr Winery Napa Valley. After 10 years serving as a world-class sommelier followed by 10 years as an international industry executive, Carr set out to follow his dream and formed his family-owned wine company in 2005. He recently added his Josh Cellars brand to his signature Joseph Carr Wines. An old-world style producer, Carr makes his wines in California’s Napa Valley. He also has a home on Cape Cod. As he spreads his winemaking philosophy of balance, sophistication and approachability in support of the arts across the Cape, we are very grateful that he has very generously supported CCMoA with his signature wines for many years.
